While you may not view someone else’s impressive business card as a blast to the ego like Christian Bale in American Psycho, one should not dismiss the importance of a first impression. In many cases, a business card is just that.

We love that bigger companies like Vista Print make graphic design and print ordering a breeze for people. However, people shouldn’t forget the crucial role that graphic designers serve for your business. Although, you could easily customize a template, does your brand really fit in a template?

Every brand should convey a feeling. What are you trying to say with your brand? Are you trying to stand out? A professional graphic designer eliminates the guesswork and ensures that your business card is conveying the right feeling for your brand.

Professional graphic design fees vary company to company. Quality print product and formats accepted vary from printer to printer. Why not work with a professional and have the card designed? If you own the file, you can get it printed wherever you want! Just tell your designer where you would like to get it printed and they’ll be able to provide you with the necessary format.

In our experience, a graphic artist typically charges between $75-$150 per hour for this type of project. Once you have the files, they belong to you and you can get them printed as you see fit. Not so large of an investment when you look at it that way.

If you choose to work with Zen Small Business Solutions, we can assist you with not only the graphic design: but you can take advantage of our affordable printing options! We’ll take the guesswork out of ordering and ensure you’re getting the best quality for the best rate.
