Do-it-yourself business cards may seem like a convenient and cost-effective option, but it may not be the best choice for your business. Here are a few reasons why:
DIY business cards may not look professional, which can create a negative impression on potential clients or customers. It may suggest that you don’t value your business and brand enough to invest in professionally printed cards.
Home-printed cards are generally of lower quality, less durable, and less professional-looking than cards printed by a professional printing company. I recall receiving a homemade card from a business owner that got wet and started to bleed ink onto my hand.
Although printing at home may seem cheaper, the cost of ink, paper, and printer maintenance can add up quickly, making it more expensive in the long run than hiring a professional printing service.
Printing your own business cards can be time-consuming, especially if you need to print large quantities. This time could be better spent on other essential aspects of your business.
Don’t Let Your Business Card Fall Short
Designing a great business card is also important for creating a professional image. However, if you then print them at home it may limit your design options and result in a lower-quality card. That’s where professional graphic designers and printing companies come in! This will give you a wide range of options for business cards, such as different sizes, shapes, paper types, and finishes. First impressions are everything!
