the business card.

Pick Up Value : -adjective Everything that makes your potential client/customer want to pick up that business card and know more. Its what makes them want to check into your biz and see what you are all about.

Once you have a logo, the next step is to start using it to brand & market your business. Use your logo as a foundation and build from there. I love to use the logo as inspiration for future designs in the whole marketing package.

The business card is underrated. It is one of the least expensive ways to market your business. The design, print & paper are essential to the ‘pick up value’ of the final piece.

Check out the business card designs below. I am thinkin the ‘pick up value’ is pretty high. Who wouldn’t want to pick up a card that uses color or the lack of color to its highest potential. Not only that, but when the card is flipped there is even more to pull them in. The paper used is heavy weight, smooth or textured, gloss or dull matte finish is chosen depending on what the biz is about. Add some rounded corners to set yourself even more apart. The options are endless.

Use this inexpensive tool to entice the client to visit your website where you answer more questions and give them the full story of what you are about. Check out more designs at the Bb portfolio.  If you (or someone you know) are in the need of business cards with a high ‘pick up value’ feel free to call (509) 429-1989 or email for pricing & ideas.
