Designing a Magnetic Business Card that Stands Out

magnetic business card

If you’re looking for business cards that won’t get lost in the shuffle, magnetic business cards are a fun and effective option! Paper business cards get lost or thrown away, but magnetic cards stay secure on fridges, lockers, desk drawers, and any other metallic surface. Magnetic business cards become mini billboards for your business, ensuring that your skills, products, knowledge, or services are not forgotten. Here are a few qualities to aim for when designing an effective and attention grabbing magnetic business card.

1. Easy to Share

The great thing about magnets is they are easily transportable. Instead of holding a bunch of loose paper cards in your pocket, you can carry a stack of magnets with ease. Potential customers you hand your magnets out to can similarly carry the magnet easily in a pocket or purse. It is also easy to send out magnets in a promotional mailing. Their size and light weight makes them easy to fit in an envelope and cheap to mail out to a multitude of customers.

2.  Durability

Of all the different kinds of promotional items customers can receive, magnets tend to stand the test of time much better than others. T-shirts eventually get holes in them or, let’s face it, we “grow out of them.” Mugs and cups can break and are difficult to transport. Paper promotional items get quickly thrown away, eventually discarded, or unintentionally lost in the shuffle. The major benefit of a magnet is its sturdiness – strong enough to hold up to potential damage and it is less likely to get lost among other papers. A magnet can last a long time in your customer’s home or business.

3. Useful

Magnets are extremely useful. They can hold everything from important documents to kids’ drawings while also serving as their own tiny decorations. Magnets can be found on almost every fridge in America, becoming in-home advertisements directly absorbed by your customers every day. A magnetic business card that has a purpose in a customer’s day to day life is much more likely to stick around. Your card is sure to be on hand in the event a future customer ever needs your services.

4.  Low Cost, Endless Advertising

No matter how big or small your business is, magnets will easily fit into your advertising budget. And for the low cost, you get so much out of a magnetic business card! Not only are you creating a promotional item that your customers will actually find useful, every time your magnet is used, you’ll be getting free advertising. A magnet stuck on a fridge in a client’s home will be seen by everyone in the house as well as any visitors. This exposure multiplies for magnets displayed in businesses. You can end up with thousands of views of your “mini billboard.”

5.  Endless Customization

The perfect custom label can provide the satisfying finishing touch to meet all your organizational and marketing goals. Not only does a custom label look neat and tidy, it allows you to express your unique aesthetic at the same time. A custom label can boost your branding, add visual impact to a product, save you time, help you organize, or even offer a fun addition to your stationary. With Blue Bee Printing, the sky is the limit for creating useful and attention grabbing custom labels. Here are 14 awesome ways to use custom labels.

1. Product Labels

If you have a product to sell, you need your name featured prominently. A great way to increase brand recognition is with a great product label. Brewing your own beer? Slap a custom label on it for a professional appearance. Starting an at-home bath bomb business? Custom product labels can increase the appeal of your brand tenfold.

2.  Create Great Packaging

Another great way to increase the recognition of your brand is to stand out with eye-catching labels for your packaging. Make your product stand out even when you’re shipping it. Custom mailing labels can instantly communicate with the customer before they even open the box.

3. Name Tags

You can easily turn your next event into an opportunity to get your logo noticed with custom name tags. A custom name tag is a great way to emblazon your brand front and center during presentations and face-to-face interactions with potential customers.

4.  Business Card Stickers

People can easily misplace tiny, loose pieces of paper. But if you put your contact information on a brightly colored sticker and affix it to folders or files for clients, they won’t be able to miss it. You can design these stickers with all of your business info as well as your logo or company colors.

5.  Return Address Labels

You can save time on all of your personal and professional correspondence by creating custom return address labels. Instead of tediously writing your return address in the corner of your envelopes and packages, a custom label can do the job in seconds. Custom return address labels can also add professionalism and branding to your business correspondence.

6. Gift Tags

During the holidays or throughout the year for birthdays, anniversaries, and other celebrations, custom gift tags can really add some personality to your wrapping supplies. A custom label will also save you time because you will no longer have to write out individual tags for each gift. Gift labels also will not require you to struggle with tape and create a much tidier aesthetic.

7.  Party Favors

Spice up your party favors with a custom label. Wedding favors, kids’ birthday treats, or favors for any celebration can be customized to fit your party theme. A custom label is a great way to let your guests know how much you appreciate them.

8.  Organize Your Pantry

The aesthetic of storing spices and other ingredients into simple, space saving glass containers is taking off. What better way to ensure you don’t mix up your salt and sugar than to create custom labels? Customizing your pantry labels can keep you organized while also matching the décor of your kitchen.

9.  Keep Your Herb Garden Neat

If you are growing fresh herbs at home, it is easy to keep track of all of your plants with custom labels. No longer worry about confusing your basil with your mint. You could also include care instructions on the labeling to give your green thumb an extra boost!

10.  Organize Your Craft Supplies

Instead of having to dig through multiple different boxes to find tape or ribbon, use custom labels to organize your craft supplies. Labels help you keep things tidy so you know exactly where to look for the item you need. Your next craft project will go so much smoother with custom labels.

11.  Label Household Multiples

Today, the household debate is less over who gets the remote and more over what phone charger belongs to whom. Many families have identical phone chargers, electronic devices, and personal care items. Household multiples can be sorted out in a moment with custom labels. Labeling your kids’ personal items with their own custom sticker can save you from playing referee.

12.  Label Storage Bins

Customizing your storage labeling can save you time and allow you to better organize your space. You can create storage labels that list the contents of bins so you don’t have to drag every single one out of the attic until you find what you’re looking for. Custom labels can also be designed to group your storage items by category. This way, you aren’t pulling out your Christmas decorations when you really need your summer deck décor.

13. Organize the Play Room

Make teaching your kids how to keep things clean and tidy fun with labels! Labeling specific toy bins will help your child understand that every item has a “home” as well as teach them important organizational skills. Clean up time just got a big make-over.

14.  Keep Your Desk Organized

Labeling important documents, files, and folders with custom labels will make your desk more organized at the office or at home. Keeping up with a filing system is easier when you have all your folders labeled accordingly.

Blue Bee Printing offers hundreds of options for custom labels. If you can slap a sticker on it, you can label it! Choose from thousands of color options – with our online design tool you can create your own labels or work with one of our professional designers to come up with the perfect label for your need(s).

Every VSCO Girl Needs Custom Stickers by Blue Bee

Why does a VSCO Girl need custom stickers?

While the majority of today’s most popular fads revolve around a particular app, meme, clothing style or catch phrase that spreads like wildfire, there is a new conglomerate of (mostly) teenage girls who are taking Instagram by storm. You probably haven’t missed the fact that they definitely have a shared clothing style along with many other traits that have made them into a cultural phenomenon of 2019. This new species, my friend, is called the VSCO girl. Just like most crazes of the current era, VSCO girls are derived straight from social media.

Maybe you’ve wholly embraced the VSCO girl persona or perhaps you’re someone who has heard the term, but doesn’t have a single clue about current pop culture trends. Here’s the good news: if you’re the first type, you’re about to get a great tip that will allow you to fully immerse yourself into the VSCO world. If you fit in the latter category, you’ll soon become an expert on the inner workings of this latest fad.

It all started with the VSCO app. The purpose of this trendy app is to upgrade a photo by adding a filter and then sharing the picture on social media feeds. You’re probably thinking that this app is essentially the same thing as Instagram, and you’re pretty much correct. One of the main differences, however, is that VSCO feels more like a photo album; people cannot like photos, comment on them, or message others through the app. VSCO gives off a different vibe than Instagram. And the VSCO “vibe” has taken off with immense popularity.

What is the VSCO vibe?

The VSCO aesthetic can be described as preppy but laid-back, trendy and “basic.” Think Birkenstocks, or beachy. Girls will dress in a “VSCO girl” outfit and then post it to Instagram using the hashtag, #VSCOgirl. Furthermore, a VSCO girl is characterized by specific brands and products including white vans, Hydroflask water bottles, oversized t-shirts, Birkenstocks, choker necklaces, scrunchie hair ties, metal straws, Puka shell necklaces, and more. VSCO girls are known to be (or at least they like to appear) environmentally conscious.

Since VSCO girls seem to have a Hydroflask attached at the hip, custom stickers with the latest saying or a trendy logo would be the icing on the cake when it comes to meeting the VSCO girl dress code. At Blue Bee Printing, we offer only the best quality when it comes to printing customized stickers and magnets. The presence of customized stickers is on the rise and VSCO girls, we are calling your name.

With a customized sticker, you can create a unique sticker that matches your personality. Now, if you’re trying to fit the VSCO girl persona, you might want a sticker with a certain saying or image. Here are a few suggestions: an ocean wave, a Birkenstock, #savetheturtles, the setting sun, your favorite animal, clothing brand, or #VSCOgirl as a die cut sticker.

You name it, we can make it. All you have to do is hop on our website and check out the options. Once you have an idea for the sticker you would like to create, you can make your own personal design. Your sticker might have the same picture as your partner-in-crime, but the beauty of a customized sticker is that you could make it a different shape or color! We encourage creativity and trend-setting here at Blue Bee, which is why we make it possible to create such a wide variety of stickers. Soon, your friends will want their own customized stickers and you’ll be the first to tell them about the latest up-and-coming trend.
