Whether you’re a recent college grad or you’re wrapping up your final collegiate semester, it’s important to dive into the job hunt prepared. In this digital age, it may be hard to fathom that business cards are still relevant. Well, I’ve got news for you; print isn’t dead.

By combining tech savvy knowledge and modern business cards, you’re sure to stand out among your fellow competitors.

Using business cards during networking and social events give you a huge advantage. Here’s how:

Benefits of Business Cards

1) While it’s nearly impossible to find someone without a smartphone, that doesn’t mean it’s easier or faster to share your contact information. Instead of typing his or her information in on the spot, you can simply hand someone a business card. This gives the person the opportunity to plug in your information at his or her convenience.

2) Business cards are more personable. Engaging in eye contact and cultivating a conversation is key for starting a strong business relationship. It’s better to create that personal interaction by handing out a physical business card.

3) Business cards give you the opportunity to showcase your creativity.  It can be hard to show diversity by simply texting your contact information or only sending an invite via LinkedIn. Make sure your business card stands out; don’t be afraid to use unique color combinations, styles or finishes. If you’re looking to give your business cards a playful edge, our Painted Edge Business Card gives off a pop of pearlescent color. If you’re wanting to add a special feature, explore our Matte with Spot UV Business Card, which offers a spot gloss feature against a dull matte stock. Creative business cards stand out; your business card is a physical representation of your self-branding. When a prospective employer or colleague takes away your card from an encounter, your brand stays with them.

4) You can use your business cards to promote your online presence. When creating your business card, your name and contact information is a must. However, your contact information doesn’t have to stop at your email and phone number. Does your Instagram showcase your creative side? Perfect, you can add your handle. However, make sure your content is appropriate for professional use. Any professional websites or online portfolios are also extremely beneficial.
