I have been all a twitter, communicating with my new social media friends from Allen Hall Public Relations and loving it! Last night we discussed the importance of having the necessary tools for networking. I encouraged the students to look into calling cards as I believe they are a valuable tool for aspiring professionals and interns.
Today, I received a great question from one of my Allen Hall PR twitter followers. I brought it over to our blog as I simply couldn’t answer it Twitter style in 140 characters or less…
“@MonthlyManner Would you suggest having calling cards printed at a business or purchasing clean, blank sheets of cards and printing at home?”
Professionally Printed Cards guarantee a polished image. There are several companies that print cards at reasonable price points. For the moderate level I recommend Moo, Modern Postcard and Over Night Prints or you can not go wrong with (100% cotton) calling card from Crane and Co–my personal favorite!
Print at Home is a less expensive option and can work well if you are printer savvy. Companies such as Avery and Gartner Studios have paper and templates designed for this very purpose. You can find these products online or at any office supply store. Before printing, I suggest researching cards you find professional and using them as a format guide. Make sure the print is centered and that there isn’t any discrepancy in the tone of the ink. Always recycle any questionable cards as it would be a shame for a less than perfect card to end up in the hands of an important contact.
Thanks for the question bripinder, I hope this helps!
