Business cards for all occasions

Business Cards - Business cards are not just for business any more. Many people use business cards, also known as “calling cards” for personal and social use – they are an excellent make a good first impression it, they are not terribly expensive, and they allow you to give people as much (or as little) of your contact information as you wish to. The proliferation of cell phones, pagers, instant messenger ids and even multiple email addresses has made it more convenience to store all of this information on a single card that can be distributed to friends and acquaintances.

When designing a personal calling card, it isn’t necessary to get too elaborate. It can be as simple as a script font on clean, white paper, or as elaborate as a four-color press job or photo card. One option, which is inexpensive and still leaves an impression, is to select preprinted business card paper with a visually appealing image or pattern, then to print up your own business cards on that paper using your home computer and inkjet or laser printer.

Another option would be to try using an Internet quick-print company that specializes in printing small runs of business cards on your choice of paper stock or one of many pre-fabricated business card designs. Some of these web sites offer an online design-a-card application which lets you lay out your text on their background, initial the final proof then order your cards, all online. The price for printing up a box of business cards using this type of service ranges, from $5 to $40 and up.

With web sites being so inexpensive and easy to develop and host these days, many people have personal web sites, with photos, art and other information, which they also like to include on their calling cards. Singles, especially, find it useful to have a personal web site with photos, sometimes poetry or perhaps a blog (short for Web Log), which is a type of online journal in which you can write your thoughts, experiences, even short stories. I maintain a number of blogs, for personal and business use.
