Why Do I Need Plastic Business Cards?

When handing out your business card, you want to grab attention. The last thing you want is for your card to get lost amongst a slew of others, or worse—get bent, dirty, or destroyed. Many of your competitors will be using paper, so here’s your opportunity to stand out from the crowd and make that bold impression with a plastic business card.

Why Do I Need Plastic Business Cards?In a stack of paper, plastic business cards really stand out. They're thicker, sturdier, and have a unique touch and feel. Plastic is totally unique in the business card arena. A durable, well-designed plastic business card will show your contacts you know what you’re doing.

Durable—even at the bottom of a cluttered bag

If you are a person on the go, constantly juggling bags, portfolios, and your phone, the last thing you need to worry about is what condition your business card will be in when you hand it off to a prospective contact. Paper needs to be treated delicately, or you run the risk of bending or ripping your cards. Not only do you then lose the money paid for the cards themselves, but a potential contact.

Problem(s) solved with plastic business cards

All of these problems are solved with plastic. Plastic business cards are extremely durable and impressive—even when the card gets pulled from the bottom of a cluttered pocket or bag. You won’t worry about your cards getting bent, smudged, frayed, soggy, or ripped. Reach into your pocket or bag with confidence, knowing your cards will look brand new—even if they go through the laundry!

These are just a few examples of business card struggles. Plastic business cards can eliminate these frustrations and allow you to focus on your goals. CARDSource offers a variety of business card options.

Our most common size has been the standard credit card size—but we now have a 3.5” x 2” business card option! You can get that classic business card look and feel, but with the appeal and durability of plastic. Interested in something even more unique? We print clear cards, matte finish cards, many different sizes, and much more.
