Gepubliceerd op 24 maart 2023 om 00:14

Starting your own business can sometimes be terrifying, but is also challenging and a fun process.


One of the things that needs to be done is making your own business cards. It is indeed possible, if you have the specific type of paper and the printer at home. You don't need to go to the printing shop, although it is easy to let someone print it for you, but if you are the type of person who wants to save money. Then try printing at home. 


You just need to buy these 4 types of paper and make sure you have enough ink in your printer. 

  1. Glossy Card Stock

Use this to have a professional look in your card. This is probably one of the mostly used paper for business cards making. It is sturdy and doesn't easily tear apart. 


2. Matte Card Stock

Like the first one, this is also a card stock, but matte. It isn't glossy, but your business card will still look like a professional one. It is up to you then to decide. 


3.  Glossy photo paper

If you wish to print photos on your business cards, like real estate agents do, you can use this type of paper.  WIth a professional level photography, your card will definitely have a high standard look, thus attracting potential costumers. 


4. Textured Card stock

A textured business card is also attractive for potential costumers. It is different from the usual business cards, but just like the others, it gives the card a special look. 


5. Craft carton paper

This type of paper is becoming a trend for business cards. People use this more often and it attracts people because it's not a usual way which is a good thing. If you want to be creative, try these. 


To have a storage for your business cards, buy these design. You can place this on your office, at the cashier side or at the entrance. This will keep them arranged and organized. Costumers love that.
