First impressions: Business cards to get you noticed


Business cards are crucial in a first impression with a potential new client. Taking an unconventional approach with the design and production of your business cards can be effective.

Lego Minifigures

What better way to showcase their product than to use minifigures of themselves as business cards with contact details printed on the back.

Laser Cut

Custom laser cut business cards are ideal for creative businesses who want to stand out from the crowd. This format is anything but corporate. It reflects luxury and attention to detail.

Practical & Useful

With some imagination you can create a business card that actually adds value for potential and existing contacts such as a gardening business card made of seed paper.

Augmented reality

Add an element of interactivity through augmented reality (AR). There are a variety of interactive elements that could be included, such as company presentation videos or individual introductions.


Stamped business cards can show a business’s craftsmanship. Handmade cards feel more personal which can make them well suited to smaller businesses.


For high-end businesses, a polished finish is essential. This can be achieved through printing the business cards using a heavy quality stock or adding metallic foiling for an eye-catching highlight.

Double-sided Design

Your business cards don’t have to be single-sided – if you’ve got lots to say why not opt for double-sided instead.

Remember, first impressions count and with companies making new connections all the time, it’s important that your business card is memorable whilst also accurately reflecting the character of the company and, crucially, contains up to date contact details if they do want to get in touch.
