It’s not difficult to note that almost everything that happens in the business world today is digital, such as sending email, holding a meeting, and even networking. One thing that hasn’t completely flipped the digital switch is the business card. Business cards may seem old-fashioned in an age when a digital option is available, but in reality, quite a few people still prefer the significance of the original tactile business card.
“Physical business cards facilitate a personal and unique connection between you and other professionals you’re networking with. They can also provide continued marketing for you – but only if your business card makes a good impression and stands out among the rest.” – Blue Bee Printing
Are you looking for a reputable company that will go above and beyond simply printing what you tell them to print? Blue Bee Printing will help you along the way with the creativity and creation of your next business card.
Blue Bee Printing offers an easy way to design and print your own business cards, and you don’t have to leave the comfort of your own home. While it may seem like an oxymoron of sorts – with Blue Bee you can design a business card – and all of your printed marketing materials – online. Convenience merged with tradition will allow you to bring to life printed promotional items on an easy-to-use online printing program.
Are printed business cards necessary in today’s tech-savvy business world? In a word – YES. Read on to find out three reasons WHY.
- Genuine Connection
Face-to-face networking allows you to form genuine connections with potential customers, colleagues, and other business junkies. While it is possible to simply send your contact information via text or email, that hasn’t proven as effective a method for starting a relationship as making eye and hand contact as you meet a new colleague or potential client.
- First Impression
When you hand someone your business card, it may be their first impression of both you and your company. A unique, sharp design will create a lasting impact on your customer and serve as a good icebreaker for a conversation and potential relationship. It is much easier to cultivate a lasting relationship in person than via e-chats after which digital business cards can be shared. Without the tactile, hands-on connection with you as well as a physical reminder (your business card in their hand), the chances of your contact info being forever forgotten in a business card app are high.
- Continued Marketing
If you make a solid first impression with one person, they will walk away with a creative, memorable interaction and several of your business cards that they’ll likely share with others. On the other hand, if you exchange information through text or email, the conversation will likely end there, and your opportunity for successful network marketing via business card will flop.
Ready to Design Your Business Cards with Blue Bee? It’s Easy (and actually quite fun)!
Do you know what you want your business card to look like? If so, great! If not, that’s okay, because Blue Bee offers design templates that get the ball rolling. Maybe you want to keep it simple and begin with a blank background. Once you decide on a template or background, you can add a variety of shapes and personalized text. This is when you can place your contact information such as name, company name, email, fax number, etc. on the card. The good news is that your business card can have both a front and back design and be landscape or portrait.
You can upload your business’s specialized logo and place it directly on the card. Choose the exact location of your logo and/or brand name on the card to direct the eye of your viewers. It’s also possible to add artwork and other images to make your business card unique.
Choose between a gloss coat or an uncoated smooth coat as well as matte lamination or no lamination. Another interesting touch that you could add to your business cards is rounded corners. Once you’ve made all of your design decisions, you’re ready for the final step: printing!
Checking out is easy; simply choose when you want your business cards to arrive and how many you’d like to order. Choose your payment options, and Blue Bee will have your specially-designed, business-promoting cards on your doorstep before you know it.
