Could not agree with you more - a good business card design is probably still the most effective way of capturing the attention of a potential client. While working for a printing company, I get to see various examples of designs, and boy some of them are very, very creative and original. Keeping in mind the idea of how important is the first impression for a creative (or any business runner), paying proper attention to these introductionary details is essential.

A wonderful article, thank you,

I'm thinking about printing on both sides of my cards. One side will be the typical business card info, and the other will be the steps of CPR. (In a very simple A, B, C format). I'm hoping this will get people to keep the card in their wallet or close by. What do you think?
This is a great idea! With CPR tips on the back, this is a card many people will want to keep with them.

I do think business cards should simply have your contact info and your logo. Your contact info should include your URL, phone number(s) and email address.

Great ideas. All of them depend on context, though. Funny how so many people try to use solutions that don't fit the problem at all. Thanks!

Terrific idea! The more reasons you give clients and potential clients to look at your card, the better your business will be impacted.

How many of your feel that your business card is essential to your business? What do you have on your business card that makes your card unique to you and your business? Have you gotten many customers from a business card?

At first, a small piece of paper might not have a lot of power but when you’ve passed it out at trade shows, business conferences, sales calls, and more, that’s when your message gets louder and louder. No longer do you need to depend on cold calling. A business card will speak for you – and it will serve as a constant reminder of what you have to offer and how to get a hold of you and your business.

On the front side of your card, have a brief headline that summarizes how you can help your prospects. Include your name, phone number, website, and email on the front.

On the back of the card, list testimonials of people who have used your services in the past. This is a great way to get instant credibility to your name.
