Little things can make a big difference when it comes to first impressions... your business card is not only an opportunity to let potential clients, friends, squash partners, and recipe swap mates Know what your business is all about, but it is also an opportunity to let them in on a bit of your personality.
Below you will find some links that we hope will inspire you to be a little more colorful, or at least act as a reminder that it's time to reorder more business cards.
Find Your Inspiration
When it come to business cards no one does it quite like the Japanese. Take a look at the history and tradition of Meishi, and check out a few other links to see what that long tradition has come to look like in the contemporary world today: Japanese Business Cards | Meishi The Art of Introduction | Business Card for Tamiya | Printing Museum Tokyo
Maybe look back to the first widely used business cards also known as Trade Cards.
Try out some DIY ideas.
A Few Examples from the Aforementioned links
Find Your Printer
Once you're inspired just find yourself a printer. If you happen to be inspired by the palettes and patterns here on COLOURlovers, set yourself up with some MOO cards or one of the other many template & design-it-yourself business card sites that can easily be found with a "business cards" search. I recommend doing a local search for printers in your area before reaching out the the global community, unless you need them by tomorrow.
