Third Degree Custom Business Cards

Third-Degree-Advertising---Business-Cards
Just wanted to share these really quick. I helped redesign my agency's business cards. We only have a few people in the agency who need lots of business cards, but we had been in the habit of printing hundreds of cards for everyone.

In the new system, we have kraft chipboard shells with generic information for our two offices. You check the box for your office and fill in the space for your extension. Each employee has a custom printed sticker to fit onto the card. When we get a new hire or promotion, we can just print new stickers instead of whole new cards.

Apparently these cards were a big hit at a conference recently. In an environment where attendees are swarmed with free trinkets, they were coming to our booth specifically for our business cards. Neat!

  4. Thanks! When business cards are pretty much commoditized at this point, you gotta do something that will stand out.

  7. As someone in the graphics/production biz, especially one that deals with producing a TON of business cards, this kind of outside-the-box thinking is INSPIRATIONAL!

    ...I wish some of my clients would be willing to try something different, instead of "Can you make my card look like how I set it up for VistaPrint?"

  8. It helps to show the value of doing something different. When you can make a business card that people actually want to see, feel and keep, that's much more valuable than a generic card.

  9. Generic information for two different offices on one card, and blank spaces for you to legitimately write more digits on?
    Looks like you're trying to create some kind of trade showdown monster!

    Actually, while I'm necro-referencing, looks like you predated the whole 'permanent defacing of game cards' -legacy game style with trade showdown too!

  10. Huh, perhaps so! I bet those old western card players marked a fair share of cards. :)
