How important are business cards?
A question I always ask my new clients and indeed existing clients. I have, as you can imagine, received so many business cards through meeting new clients and networking and I think very simply these are the best form of marketing for a company. Business cards say so much about your company and how seriously you take your first impression. Let’s face it we have all been given cards that are produced online. These cards are generic in their look and are pretty flimsy to touch. I know of a large high end retail company that will not see new suppliers if they have these such business cards.
We all get excited about meeting new clients and how many of us put on our best suits/clothes, immaculate hair and if you are lady; nails polished and makeup on. The aim is to make a great and lasting impression. Then think about the business cards – if you give an inferior business card then it let’s your image down – or even worse, if you turn up with no business card. It looks very much like you are not prepared for the meeting – would you turn up in jeans and greasy hair and your teeth not cleaned? Well that is how important business cards are.
Contrary to popular belief business cards can be produced with a high quality look and finish quite inexpensively too. Sentio can show you many different samples of business cards we produce all sorts from a standard business card with a matt or gloss lamination to duplexed business cards that are 1050gsm thick and foil blocked. Whatever the budget Sentio can help with the design and the print.
