30 Unconventional Business Cards

Friday, August 22nd, 2014

Story By VIGNESH RAMACHANDRAN

Yes, more traditional business practices are going digital these days. Though sometimes, a good ol’ physical business card is just as effective for that networking event, trade fair or random grocery store encounter.

But to make yourself memorable, leave behind the ho-hum, stock-designed business cards in favor of something a bit more creative. Who knows? It might be worth that little extra investment when your company stands out from the stack of cards already on everyone’s desk.

We scoured the Internet and found some pretty clever designs. Check out our list below of 30 creative business cards (in no particular order) — they leave quite the impression.

1. Face to a Name

Truly put a face to a name with this design by REACTOR.

Use Promotional Items for Back to School Giveaways

Sunday, August 23rd, 2009

College students are struggling more than ever to meet the financial obligations needed each semester of school. Tuition, room/board, books, food and school supplies can definitely put quite a strain on a college student’s wallet. If your target market is college students, you have an amazing opportunity to market your brand while aiding a struggling college student.

A promotional notepad would make a fantastic giveaway as students will certainly find use for it in addition to saving money on school supplies. Your brand awareness will increase and the notebook can also have an insert or section providing students with more information about other products and services that would benefit them. Promotional pens and pencils are another obvious and useful item that will increase your brand’s exposure. USB flash drives also make wonderful giveaway items as students require portable document storage if they’re using a computer provided by their University.

To discover great promotional products that suit the back to school crowd, contact us today.

What Are The Hot Promotional Products Right Now?

Tuesday, June 30th, 2009

We’re often asked questions such as “What are the popular promotional products out there right now?”  This is not a simple question because the answer is constantly changing as our culture changes.  Some promotional items like promotional pens and coffee mugs will never go out of style, but, in this day and age, we can provide something a little more fresh and innovative.  Instead of focusing on singular products, let’s focus on categories that are popular.

Electronic Promotional Items - Technology based items are always great items to use because they’re always useful and always have that mass appeal that other products can’t come close to duplicating.  The choice between a coffee mug and USB flash drive is really a no-brainer.  People love toys so these items are sure to impress.

Eco-Friendly - We covered our new line of eco-friendly products recently.  Again, people as well as businesses have become more environmentally conscious so choosing a product that fits within this realm will really speak volumes to your market.

Tools - Because of the economy, many people have resorted to doing home improvement items themselves to avoid the high service costs that a professional would charge.  Because of this, items like promotional screwdrivers are really doing well because they’re useful given the current economic climate.

Travel - People are still on the go in today’s society so travel mugs, cups as well as voice recorders are also hot items.

In a few months, we’ll likely have a new list of many new trendy products, but for now, take advantage of what’s hot and contact us to get started on your own promotional product campaign.
