Almost every year I read a blog post that says "Are Business Cards Dead?" or "Business Cards are Dead." Nothing could be further from the truth. Business Cards are essential to in person meetings, and can be mailed easily. I've had clients save my business card for several years and then contact me because it helped them to remember me.
I offer all types of finishes: Matte, UV Coated, Silk Finish, Velvet (or Suede), and both inline and stamped foil. Cards can be a variety of sizes but I lean towards standard sized cards because they fit well in people's wallets. For an example of Inline Foil look at the "Suncoast Premier" card below. Inline foil allows colors to show through. Stamped Foil is only solid colors like Silver, Gold, Pink etc.
