Whether you are a freelancer or business owner looking for new clients, or are out of work and competing in a tough job market that is about to be very oversaturated with people competing for positions, you need to be able to stand out to get your foot in the door and to get the job or work you have been wanting or dreaming about.
There are many ways to stand out:
If you want to take it to the next level however, you need to be willing to think outside the box. If you really want to stand out, the creative use of 3D printed business cards is a great approach.
Plain old paper business cards are boring. If you think back to how often you’ve actually kept any of those in the long term you’ll know why they’re probably not the best use of your hard earned money.
But imagine instead a card that can be used to promote yourself or your business that people will actually hold onto because they’re fun or have some kind of utility? That’s where 3D printed business cards come in.
3D printing allows you to create totally unique business cards, and that’s what will help you stand out. Your business card will be different from anything else out there.
Take for example this awesome toy fighter jet business card with moving parts, made by a person who focusses on design and prototyping:
Or this interesting lithographic card:
There are so many different examples of the type of 3D cards that could be created. You could for instance, make a flat packed toy with your business details on it that people can assemble and keep on their desk because it’s fun and looks cool.
The possibilities for this type of personal and business marketing are almost endless depending on your profession and how creative you want to be.
Bonus points if the card has some sort of utility like some of the suggestions above that will cause people to keep your card on their desk for longer and actively engage with it or play with it throughout the day.
This is the kind of marketing that will get you remembered. Business owners may even talk about you and share it with their other business owner friends!
The process for making 3D printed business cards is fairly straight forward:
But what if you don’t have a 3D printer or design skills? That’s no problem at all. 3D printing services can be very affordable.
If you have an idea for a 3D printed card we can help you with the design and printing. If you request a quote we can help you answer the question how much do 3D printing services cost? You might be surprised how affordable this is compared to trying to learn how to design in 3D, buying a 3D printer and materials for it and taking the time to try and figure it all out yourself.
And if your unique business card lands you the job of your dreams, then the cost of having the cards designed and printed will pay for themselves many times over. There are many things you can make with a 3D printer we haven’t covered here. Find out what else you can make with a 3D printer.
