If you’ve just launched your own company, business cards are a must. Not only do you want a good design that potential customers will remember, but you’ll want to try to cut down on the cost, especially as a new business owner. Here are some ways you can cut down on the cost of your business cards:
Make your own at home
If you’re a decent designer and you’ve got a printer at home or in your office, consider making your own. You’ll need to invest some time, plus the money for the materials, but the cost will be significantly lower if you can handle the entire task on your own from start to finish. Even just making the design on your own and hiring a company to print them for you can help keep costs lower.
Don’t order too many at once
It might be cheaper to order in bulk, but carefully consider how many you want to order if you’re just starting out. A lot of things can change after your initial business set-up: your office address, contact information, or your logo, for instance. Start off with a small amount, and after things are more settled, begin placing larger orders.
You may be able to save a lot by only printing on one side of your business cards. At the very least, only printing a very simple design on the back of your business cards can help to slash prices, especially if you’re printing a massive amount.
Find a happy medium
It can be tempting to go for the costly novelty option, and while you shouldn’t dismiss this idea entirely, you’ll want to keep things simple if you’re looking for a more cost-effective option. Don’t go too simple to the point where your business cards are bland and just get tossed in the trash; after all, saving money on business cards won’t matter much if nobody hangs onto them. Instead, find a happy medium.
Order them online
Many business owners have found that ordering their business cards online have proven to be the most cost-effective option of all. Shop around for different options, read reviews from past customers, and find out if the place you want to order from is offering any promotions.
