Technology in our society of ever changing. With so many things becoming digital, business cards are still such a vital, crucial, and tangible element for any brand. It's amazing that something as small as 2" x 3.5" can make such an impact on our businesses! Similar to a 15 second commercial, you have about 5-10 seconds to make an impact with your card.
Why you need a good business card.
The design of a business card, and the importance of it reflecting your brand, is much overlooked. Your business card needs to convey what you're about. Since a business card should reflect your personality, come up with something that represents you, not someone else.
