Top Three Ways to Get Creative With Your Business Card

According to a 2015 study, humans now have an average attention span of just over eight seconds (that’s shorter than a goldfish!) Capturing attention upon first impression can either make or break your business and reputation. When a one-on-one, personal introduction to your products and/or services is not a viable option, your business card must serve in your place. That’s a pretty tall order for a 2 x 3.5″ piece of cardstock. For good or bad, your business card says a lot about your company and its products and services. If you are looking to jazz up your business card in order to make a positive and lasting impression, consider these creative alternatives to your basic , everyday business card.
