The best way to make sure your card is able to make itself stand apart from hundred other cards is to make it look different. Rather than getting your name and phone number printed on a regular rectangle card, what you can do is play with the size and design of the card and get something which is extra ordinary. You can use a shape which goes well with what your business stands for and what your services are. Let your imagination and run and come up with something which attracts a third person and keeps him or her interested. Also, apart from the design, focus on the copy or what is written on the card. Make it as interesting as possible and play around with fonts to make it go with the creative shape you have chosen. Remember, everything you do have to go with your services and business. This way, not only will your information stay intact but your customer will also remember you because of the creativity in your card.

Even if you have an awesome design for the business card and a very funny copy which would make people read it again and again, if your print quality is not up to the mark then the whole purpose of a great looking card will be defeated. Print quality is very important in a business card as you do not want your information to coming on the back side of the card, or a thin paper which tears at the slightest of force. All these things have to be kept in mind before you choose a printing press which will print the cards for you. Look up on the internet and visit the press before actually giving them your work. Look at their past work and make sure you have spoken to other people who got their job done from the respective press. Once you are sure that they provide you with maximum quality work regardless of the quantity go ahead and place your order. This will make sure your cards are not just interestingly shaped but are of a premium quality as both of them are equally important. Once these two things are in place, your card is good to go.

Creative and interesting cards and quality print is all what it takes to create a lasting impression on the customers mind and is a great marketing tactic as well, especially for small business owners.
