Business card printing has a long history but not only for business. Personal business cards also known as “calling cards” have been around over one hundred years. Think about how handy it would be to leave your name and phone number or email instead of trying to find a piece of paper and scribble it down. Whether you want cards for personal or business use doesn’t matter, it can be a fun and creative process either way.

Before you actually start the business printing, here are a few questions you need to ask yourself:

What kind of paper do you want your cards made out of? Medium weight, heavy card stock or glossy finish? Glossy finish is good for photos. Plastic business cards? What kind of logo do you want for your business printing? Does your company printing already have a logo? Do you want the printer to come up with a logo for your company printing? What is your budget? How much money do you want to spend? Do you need thousands or hundreds of print cards? In order to print cards you need to know what you want on the card. Will they be personal business cards or company printing? Just be ready with your information and the process will go quickly.

Depending on the size of the job, you may want to print at home using your home computer. The quality won’t be quite as sharp as having them done at a professional printer, but if you only need a few these it is a good way to go. If you choose to print cards at home, make sure you get a good quality paper. If you get a real inexpensive paper, sometimes they are so flimsy they look like you printed it at home. They also can be hard to separate. Usually ten cards are printed on one sheet. They have perforated lines and by folding back and forth they should be easy to separate. However, if the paper is too thin, they don’t have a clean separation and look tacky.

Going to a local printer and copy shop is easy. They will walk you through the process of prices and designs. They’ll let you know how to print the cards with their company. It’s a fast process as long as you have all the details worked out and know exactly what you want on your cards.

Another place you can get your business card printing done is online, by using the internet. There is a lot of competition. This is good for you because it brings the cost down, but it can be overwhelming in who to choose. Take some time and see if the company has experience, have they been in business long? Do they have a secure website for paying? Don’t forget, there is a lot of personal information on your card and then you pay using your credit card. Going online offers advantages like getting plastic business cards, something you couldn’t do at home.
