BUSINESS CARD BASICS 101! Once you've decided to start your business, you must take it seriously. First impressions count and rarely do you get another opportunity to change it in a persons mind. FIRST, decide what you want included on your business card. The basic information for a business card would normally include a name, company, phone number, email address and web address. If your business name doesn't give someone a clue as to what you do in that business, consider a "tagline" to reinforce your business' product or services.
NEXT, RESEARCH A FEW GRAPHIC DESIGN COMPANIES and pick one that can service your needs. If you belong to a business association, start there or perhaps ask other businesses for referrals as to whom they used. Remember that a low price is not always the best option. There is something to the saying, "you get what you pay for." Should you design your own business card? Well, I agree that you should have some input but why not let those trained in this area do the work for you. Be smart about the company you choose as you will be judged on what you hand out. It's a representative of you.
