A business card is a necessary networking tool. Even though everyone has a mobile phone they still want you to provide them a card versus just adding you to their contact list. My theory is it reminds them later on who you are and how they met you.
The way your card looks also says a lot about you business and style. Ideally you want something interesting and memorable. A combination of good paper weight, well organized content, strong typography and tasteful colors will help it all come together.
The best route is to get a great designer to create them for you; however, if you can’t afford one just remember to keep the design really really simple.

Love, love, love Moo. Oh, did we mention we love them! The cards are perfect for boutiques becuase you can get one pack with multiple cover designs featuring different products, colors, or whatever your heart desires. You can also choose different paper weights and order mini cards (which are also great for tagging merchandise). They have other options also, go check them out.
Ok, we love Jakprints too. They are great for special orders. For example, you can get custom die cuts, foil stamping, folding business cards, and much more. Like Moo they also have other product lines that are great for businesses.
Vistaprint also has a lot of affordable options. You can go traditional or get business cards with raised print, spot gloss, or a metallic finish.
We experimented with a picture and a solid color for the front of our cards.
