It is said that a business card speaks a thousand words. In most human interactions today, especially of the one to one kind, business cards are exchanged sooner or later. Along with proving the requisite introduction and contact details, the card still has a lot to say with the material and style used for its manufacture. These cards may or may not have an image printed on them.
In the recent years, the traditional cards have come to be greatly overshadowed by the new innovations in technology. The cards in vogue today are the plastic cards that have a plastic coating on them. Such cards last longer as they are not prone to much wear and tear owing to the protection offered by plastic. Many business organizations and individuals today are opting for cards with a silk finish. These cards provide a sophisticated classy look. Another kind of cards now available is known as the UV coated visiting card. These cards have a uv coating that brings out the colors used on them. A business card must be selected keeping in mind the specific needs and requirements of the individual or business organization.
The most common business cards in use today are the 16pt. Pt stands for the thickness. The other thinner cards that are available are the 12pt or 14pt ones. Needless to say, among these three, it is the 16pt that make the best impression of them all. A thick and nicely designed card can convey the impression that the individual or company takes its seriously and puts in a lot of thought in their designing and printing.
Short run business cards can be ordered when the requirement is on a smaller scale. Such a requirement can come up either to meet some sudden shortfall in the cards, or in the event of any unplanned and arising unforeseen need.
