You decide that it’s time to start your own business…be the captain of your own ship…put your fate in your own hands. You decide on your product. You spend countless hours deciding on the most brilliant and appropriate name for your company. You invest days and weeks developing your business plan. You get your investment capital and finally, it’s time to purchase your basic marketing materials.
There is nothing more exciting than seeing your business cards for the first time! Wow! you’ve done it! Your cards announce to the world that you are a business owner….
and you want your cards to look great, right?
You might think that you need to spend $500-$1000 on a graphic designer and $500 on good print quality but here’s a tip for you – you don’t have to spend that much on a great quality business card.
One of my absolute favorite sites for good quality, inexpensive business cards is Vista Print. They offer hundreds of free templates for cards (the catch: there will be Vista Print marketing on the backside or you can have it omitted for a small fee) or you can upload your graphics and have them print several hundred cards for about $100.
They do volume printing so they pass that savings on to you and they hope that you’ll choose to purchase stationary and other marketing items through them as well.
So, given that there will be lots of opportunities to spend money on your start-up, why not save yourself a few bucks on business cards?
You were born to be great.
YES, you can!
