How Often Should one Update their Business Card?

 

We recently posted the following question on our Facebook Page: “How often do you think one should update their business cards?” We were just curious, so thank you to everyone who responded — here’s what some of you had to say:

  • “Every year”
  • “As soon as new information needs to be updated”
  • “I’d agree with 1 year. That’s not to say you should revamp your entire branding every year, just info on your business card.”
  • “At least 2 years”
  • “Every 2 years”
  • “One year”
  • “1-2 years”

Do you guys agree with these responses? At the end of the day, there’s really no right or wrong answer – it’s entirely subjective. But regardless of the time frame, we always think it’s good to change things up on occasion. After all, it’s an ever-changing world and industries are ever-changing as well — personal information changes, styles and trends are constantly shifting, etc. Updating business cards is an easy way for your customers to give their biz a mini rebrand while making the necessary updates in terms of their personal data. How often one does this really depends on the size of their business, how often they go out and publicly network, etc. So please go ahead and keep sharing your thoughts with us on the subject by heading to our Facebook Page. We always love hearing what our customers have to say.

When it comes to promoting your business, first impressions are everything – from the way you present yourself, to the firmness of your handshake to, of course, your business card. Recently our Lenticular Cards have been generating a lot of buzz from our 4over customers. They’re different, they’re fun to look at, they’re super duper slick and you can display two entirely different messages on one card. And for those of you who aren’t familiar with the Lenticular Printing process, it’s a technology used to produce printed images that have the illusion of depth. Images that are printed in this way appear to change or move as the images are moved from different angles. You’ve probably seen the process used on trading cards, cereal box prizes, etc. The technology is pretty cool, and we want to know how our own customers are using it. So for those of you who’ve ordered 4over 4D Lenticular business cards, we’d love it if you could pretty please share your card designs with us. And you get to promote your business while you’re doing it! All you need to do is take a short video of your card being moved around in order for our viewers to witness the effects of the Lenticular technology. Here’s one that we shot with a card from Matt Smith of the Print Shop – you can film yours just like this, or feel free to get all creative! Our Facebook page is wide open and waiting for your posts!
