Getting your business card spot on

At Uthara Print Manchester we print a lot of business cards every month. Many people supply artwork to us, and we simply print to their requirements. Some clients ask us to design the card for them. Yet surprisingly, there are a small proportion of clients who ask us to design their cards without giving us proper information. The comment we hear so often is,just knock me up a simple design. I need some cards quickly. Well, that's a bit like going to the hairdressers and saying,just cut my hair. Can you imagine what this may turn out like?

The business card is such an important part of your business. Yes, it needs to carry the obvious information like company name and contact details. But it is more than that. The business card as a mini advertisement for a company, and it needs to convey what the company does. It needs to look professional, and be printed on a decent quality card. It needs to conform to your brand guidelines. Business cards are often printed double-sided these days. The back of the card can be utilised to enhance your business even more. For example, if could carry the company slogan, or some images of what your company sells. But whatever is placed on the back needs to be done with some thought. It is important to remember that often people who have not met you or anyone else from your company or organisation will see your business card. Therefore, ask yourself, does this business card do the job for me when I am not there?

As you would expect from a reputable printer, like Uthara Print Manchester, our business cards are always printed on high quality 400gsm card. Believe it or not, some print companies actually choose to print on lightweight card. This might save a few pounds off the final print bill, but is it actually worth cutting prices in this way when your company image is at stake?

The most important thing to get right is the design of he card. Our design team can work from your brief or instructions, and can follow the corporate style of your business. They will advise whether your card should be matt or gloss laminated and whether they think spot uv varnish will enhance the card. Nowadays business cards come in an array of different finishes and specifications spot uv business cards, with a high gloss area to contrast the matt background round cornered cards, embossed cards and even cards cut to a special shape. This is why it is best to consult a professional graphic designer who can advise you of the best finish for your card.
