Note From David

Hello ,

With a new year starting off, a lot of companies are reviewing the design of their business stationery, to give it that fresh new look.

I agree that now is an excellent time to go through all the details of your business stationery design, working closely with your graphic designer or printing professional, to uplift your business image. One of the most common questions I get asked is: " Should I include a picture on the business cards? "

Well, let's have a look at the pros and cons. I hope this will help you make the correct decision, to bring about the best possible outcome. Enjoy!

Dedicated to your continuing business success and profits

Do You Need A Picture On Your Business Card?

There are a lot of advantages and disadvantages to putting your picture on your business card. Taking a look at both can help you make the final decision.

Advantages:

. Your card will have more color than a typical business card, and will stand out.

. A photo will make you seem more approachable -- potential customers already know what you look like.

. A photo can give an impression of trustworthiness; a viewer may decide you have an honest face. Subjective impressions can be an advantage or a disadvantage.

. A photo will help new contacts find you in a group of people -- like a convention or trade show.

. A photo will give people the feeling that they already know you; people generally like doing business with people they know.

Disadvantages:

. People do judge a book by its cover and a person by how he or she looks. Subjective impressions can be an advantage or a disadvantage.

. You'll need to go get a good picture of yourself taken before your cards can be printed.

. Your appearance can quickly become outdated, thanks to clothing and hairstyle changes. Keeping your photo up-to-date can be expensive when you consider the price of the photographer and the business cards.

. Adding a photo to your business card could increase the printing cost.
