Do you own a business?
Have there been failed attempts at building a business relationship with a prospective client simply because they don’t have your contact details on hand?
Believe it or not, the simple act of handing over your business card sets a tone and gives off a particular impression of the kind of entrepreneur you are. Just that single card with your name, business address, and other pertinent info (all in small, nondescript font), reads “I am a professional. Don’t worry.” Think about the products you buy. Did you buy any with questionable packaging?

Selling your Brand
Having a Unique Business Card isn’t just getting your business out there to as many potential clients as you can. Remember what we said earlier about packaging? In several ways, your business card is your packaging, other people’s firsthand experience with you—apart from your persona and perceived people skills, of course.
You need to remember that this is one of the initial steps to marketing yourself, your business, your brand. You are establishing your brand upon meeting that potential client, business partner, supplier, or middleman (some people simply know more people than you, and of course, you’d want to keep that contact around).
The Thing with Plastic
Now that we’ve established that having a business card is important, let’s talk about the material. As you may have noticed with the sample designs we have here, plastic has been opted for instead of the typical (at least several years back) stiff paper.
So why plastic?
- Well, there’s the obvious matter of durability and longevity. Paper cards—even laminated ones—simply don’t last too long.
- Then there’s the creative aspect. You can take so many liberties by simply opting for this material over others. For one thing, you can add in a watermark.
- And then there’s the aesthetic side. It’s just pretty to look at.

Where Marketing Ultimately Leads
Having your pick of the litter, so to speak, with all these free Business Card Design templates, it may be easier now for you to move on to the next step. Do you or do you not prepare a stack? That is the question.
Another point to keep in mind, however, is that at the end of the day, you still have to work to actually keep your contacts, to maintain a healthy and growing business relationship. It doesn’t matter if you put in place the best marketing strategies, handed out the best-looking business cards if you don’t value or show that you do value those people. In line with that, your clients won’t stick around if you don’t deliver or plan on delivering the services that you promised.
Always keep in mind that the core should trump the superficial. Remember that the whole purpose of the packaging is the product itself. You put out the word for your services and your brand because of what you can do for other people, fellow business owners, organizations, and other interested parties.
Substance over form, folks! It’s a thing.
