Business Card Options


Your Comments on This Section Are Welcome

       It may be obvious, but business cards represent YOU. You can be basic and just have your name, phone, fax and e-mail address. You may wand content on the reverse side or insert a logo. You may want to insert a custom or clip-art logo. You may want to produce a series of cards targeted to classes of people you expect to contact.

       Who should you use to produce your cards? A printer would charge in the area of $30 for 500 one-sided single color cards with or without a standard logo you could choose from a book.

Here are some options:


Do it yourself:  maximum flexibility, 10 at a time, Color, B&W whatever you want to do - one sided only.

Use Avery Inkjet "Clean Edge: card sheets #8871
10 cards per sheet
No perforations
Peel off
Stock is less stiff than a printer's card stock, but acceptable

Another option is Avery #8371

Member Review:

  • Having something that tells prospective employers that I wasn't willing to pay for business cards sends a message, I don't want to send, personally

  • Having my business card look the same as other "in transition" folks also sends a message I don't care for. I literally have a dozen cards from different people that are the same design from this company.
