20th Century: Options, Options, Options
Today’s business cards come in an array of shapes, sizes and materials. Designs are no longer limited to paper-based products and almost any surface can be printed on to create a unique card. And thankfully, handing out your business card is no longer the etiquette minefield it was a few centuries ago. Many business cards are just simple cards, others are glorified 'mini-brochures' and then others are statement makers and truly get noticed. The French saying chacun son gout roughly translates as to each his own or (to) each one his taste. Everyone has individual tastes and Integrity Images is humbled to provide our great customers with a huge variety of selections including a few options below because Your Image Deserves Integrity.
However, there are still a few essential rules that should be followed to ensure its success, like keeping your card easy to read, service-appropriate and including all your relevant contact details if you’re interested in building business acquaintances that get you further than the front door.
The earliest business cards were made using wood-cut and letterpress techniques. During the 18th century, copperplate engraving became the standard practice. Cards tended to be single color prints until the advent of lithographic printing in the 19th century, which made it possible to use several colors. All this was time consuming and labor intensive.
But today, so much has changed!
