by Alisha Perry A Blogger
Though small in size, business cards have bigger capabilities of growing your business. They are a critical and integral part of your business marketing. A typical business card contains contact details of your business but today it is much more than that. 
 
Marketers are using it as a marketing opportunity by employing impressive designs to grab the attention of the prospects. A business card is the representation of your business. To create a good first impression through your business card, pay attention to every detail.
 
In this piece of content, we will discuss the most common materials used for business cards. Though there can be a variety of unique materials that you can use, these are the most widely used materials.  
 
  Paper
 
The most common and basic material out of all is the paper. There are different types of paper used by printing companies including thin paper, thick paper, and laminated paper. They even come in a variety of different colors or shades of white. 
 
No matter what is the weight of the paper, whether it is thin or thick, what really matters is the quality of the paper used. However, it is advisable to go for thick or laminated paper as thin paper often tends to get crack which doesn’t look good. 
 
The price varies according to the weight, size, design, and quality of the paper. Moreover, paper-based business cards are the most affordable ones.
 
  Plastic

One of the major advantages of plastic based business cards is that they can’t be folded like paper business cards, which means no cracks or cramps. Also, plastic business cards don’t easily get damaged. This makes them durable or long-lasting. 
 
In terms of appearance and quality, they are better than their paper counterparts and creates a positive impression. Though they are more expensive, they can save your money by preventing any damage and can also be reused. It is upon you to decide whether you want a transparent or opaque plastic card.  
 
Metal

The most common metal which is used for business cards is stainless steel. Stainless steel is preferred by many business professionals because of its uniqueness and high quality. It provides you with a variety of design and cut out options. 
 
A business card made out of metal is the most durable and make you stand out from your competitors. However, it is a little daunting to find the printing company who provide metal based business card solutions. Also, they are highly expensive.
 
Conclusion

So, these are the most common types of materials which are used for business cards. There are also other options like wood, fabric, etc. You can choose what suits your needs and budget. 
 
Whatever material you choose, make sure that your business card contains some important contact details like name of your business, your business logo, complete address, email id, and contact number to help your prospective customers to reach you easily. 
 
Apart from these, you may also add some other information like a map, social media profiles, and pictures.
