What Does Your Business Card Say About You?
Hopefully, you already have a business card, but if you don’t you should definitely create one. Business cards are something that we take for granted when we shouldn’t. The look, feel, and message on a card help people determine how they view you and more importantly if they will even remember you.
When you leave a conversation and the other party has your business card, your identity is that piece of paper. Because of this representation, your business card should not only state who you work for, your contact information, and what you do, but it should also state something about you. Not in a written sense, but more so on the overall image it creates about you.
For example if I were to hand you my business card you would probably get the feeling that I am a warm and friendly person due to the following reasons:
- The card is thick, yet feels soft.
- Corners of the card are rounded
- The card color is green
- The typography is a bit rounded
