Creative Ideas for Business Cards

Creative marketing ideas can be some of the cheapest. Business cards are a prime example. Business cards can double as gift certificates or coupons. Use them for testimonials or to introduce a new product.

Business cards don't have to be 3 1/2 x 2. For B2B, when recipients are more likely to use a business card holder, it's a good idea to conform. Otherwise, a different dimension can sometimes be more useful to you, and make your card stand out.

Regardless of the size you use, think vertical. If you use your card for informational marketing with a body of text, vertical may be the preferred layout.

Print a portion of an eye-catching section of your website that showcases how informative it is to your customer.

It's easy to do. Just press the Print Screen button on your keyboard to capture a picture of your website. Then, paste it into a simple graphics program.

From there, you can crop just the section you want and save it as a JPG file. An image that bleeds on all four sides of your business card will be the most eye-catching.
