Pitch your product with your business cards

Making business means designing a card…

When meeting potential business partners — even in times of linked-in, Xing, or facebook– the business card is the predominant way of how professionals exchange contact details. Correspondingly the internet is full of good advice on how to make your card especially memorable. And virtually all advice agrees: a business card is more memorable if it looks good!

But do you really want people to remember your choice of visual style?

Indeed, nice style elements (fonts, lines, logos,…) are a plus. However, it is crucial that your potential business partner remembers you with regard to what your product is! In the end you may want people to remember you in situations that are related to your product.
