Even in our increasingly electronic culture, one type of "hard copy" is as important as ever: the business card.
Dating back to the 15th century in China when dignitaries and members of society followed a strict etiquette of calling cards, their purpose has stood the test of time and their usefulness will not fade anytime soon. Today, business cards continue to serve as a vital method of sharing contact information. Plus, their marketing or promotional value has become invaluable.
Whether you're a corporate employee, entrepreneur, job seeker or at-home hobbyist, you can benefit from the power of a stack of 3.75" x 2.25" cards. They're a convenient and inexpensive way to enhance your professional image, market your business or simply share your email address. Plus, their usefulness has creatively expanded into mini-resumes, discount cards and even appointment reminders.
To create your own business card, you don't have to hire an expensive design firm. Simply go to the FedEx Office® Design & Print Center at fedex.com and get started. You can choose a design from one of several templates or customize your own. With designs available in 1-, 2- or full-color, and with prices starting at just $19.99, you can build a business card as simple or stylized as you'd like at a competitive price.
After entering basic details like your name, address and phone number, take advantage of the back of the card as a way to promote your business — or yourself. The customization options enable you to design a calendar, make a punch card or tip chart, or create an abbreviated resume.
And if you want to take the customization a step further, you can choose your own font, alignment, text size and color — even add a logo or photo. The card-building tool includes a spellchecker to prevent you from making embarrassing typos.
With the easy step-by-step process at the FedEx Office Design & Print Center, you can create a card unique to you — or your business — to show customers, clients or hiring managers that you mean business.
