Keep your business in your customer’s mind with magnetic business cards
If you are in a business that needs to be at the fore front of people’s minds especially in home scenarios, then magnetic business cards can be an efficient way to remain in the public’s conscience and in individual homes and offices. Magnetic business cards have several advantages over several other display and marketing systems because they are personal, convenient, easy to make and easy to distribute and unlike regular business cards they are not likely going to be discarded as soon as they are received. If you see that some of the advantages of magnetic business cards mentioned above will be useful to you, then you should know how, these very useful marketing tools can be easily made. Below is a guide on how you can go about making magnetic business cards.
First of all, you need to typeset the business card and create a design that suits you and that will communicate with your designated audience. You can use a word processor like Microsoft Word to choose the font, the font size and other formatting features that you please. Next, choose a suitable cardstock, whether coloured or plain white and with a specific thickness to your liking and print the business cards. Remember that if you want pictures in your business card, then glossy thick paper may be the best choice of paper for you. Next, cut the business card to the size that you want. Usually the dimensions of a business card are approximately 5cm by 9cm long, but since this is a special type of business card that will not likely end up in people’s wallets but more likely on fridges and other metal surfaces, then choosing a business card that is a little bit larger may be a good option. If you have several business cards printed, then you may need a commercial sized guillotine machine to make the cuts faster and cleaner. The next step is to laminate the cards that you have cut in order to make them more durable and better looking in appearance. You can find laminating film in UK quite easily as well as in other commercial centres around the world with relative ease. While buying the laminate, ask for help and advice on the best laminating material to use.
Laminating in UK and in most places around the world has been done for a long time now so finding help on how to do it properly will not be a problem. Next, you need to purchase magnetic sheets that you will use on the business cards. These magnetic strips can be found in different sizes and you may even be able to find them in standard business card sizes. Furthermore, if you want to save on some cost, it would be better to buy these strips in bulk. Once you have the size and quantity that you need, stick them to the back of the business cards and trim off the edges that are sticking out in order to get a cleaner look.
