Have you ever thought beyond the traditional function of business cards? Let’s take a look at the top 8 ways business cards can be used, and think outside of the box (or card).

  1. Appointment Cards
    Appointment reminders serve as a great tool for reminding your clients of follow-up or important appointments

  2. Coupons and Discounts
    Sharing discounts, coupons, or promo codes with a Coupon or Discount card can be a really successful way to get customers to keep your card.

  3. Thank You Cards
    A small card that carries meaningful thoughts: perfect to convey your gratitude without having to purchase larger sized cards

  4. Mini Price List
    Instead of carting around large menus, switch to fit-in-your-pocket price lists with contact info on the front and a menu list on the back.

  5. Mini Gift Certificates
    These are great to hand out at events or are easy to just carry everywhere to be ready when generosity opportunities arise.

  6. Save the Date Cards
    Share important date information for new items or product lines, upcoming sales, digital events, in person classes, and other important dates to notify your customers about

  7. Jewelry Backer Cards
    Perfect for attaching items of jewelry to, such as bracelets, earrings, or even enamel pins!

  8. QR Codes
    Do you have more information to share than what will fit on a business card? With QR Codes, you can share a wealth of information on a small amount of real estate.
