You want employees who come in contact with customers, prospects, and vendors to have business cards. It makes your employees appear professional. It makes your company appear professional. But what to do about business cards for the new employee who is still on probation, the part-timer, and the temp? It’s expensive to order 500 personalized, printed business cards for each of these employees when they might not be around for long or they might only have a limited need for a business card. You don’t want to trash a bunch of obsolete business cards.
Fortunately, there are other options available to you:
- You can design a generic, printed business card that includes your company information (company name, address, main phone number, website, general e-mail address), but no personalization and leave some space to write in a name and a direct phone number. Depending on your needs and the size of your organization, you could order 1,000 or 2,500 of these cards. Give new employees, part-timers, and temps 10 to 25 cards each. Suggest to the employee that they purchase a rubber stamp to imprint their name and direct phone number on the cards.
- Purchase blank business card stock in 8.5″ X 11″ sheets for use in a laser or inkjet printer. Design a business card template. Personalize the template with name, direct phone number, and email address for new employees, part-timers, and temps and print cards as needed on your laser or inkjet printer. Blank business card stock produces 10 business cards per sheet. Print one or two sheets per employee as needed.
These options will allow you to put business cards into everyone’s hands who may need them without breaking the bank.
