for 501(c)3 Nonprofit, Educational Organizations and Charities
Since a business card is often one of the first ways to make a good impression, it is important that your card stands out to properly promote your organization. Although a creative design is an essential part of this, the type of paper and features of the card are equally important. Some additional aspects to consider for your nonprofit’s cards could be:
Premium Weight Cards:
Thicker stock cards can add weight to your mission. Try going with 14pt or 16pt paper to add dimension to your cards.
Spot UV Coating:
Spot UV is the process of adding a layer of high gloss to only part of your design to make that part raised and glossy. It works great on logos or background patterns!
Pantone (PMS) Colors:
Need to match a specific color for your business cards? The Pantone Matching System uses specific ink colors so that there is consistency on all your marketing materials.
Specialty Paper Stocks:
Different types of paper have different feels and textures. Consider printing on silk coated cards for a super smooth finish, or linen or Strathmore for an elegant, textured feel.
Business cards are a necessity not only for commercial businesses but also for nonprofits and educational organizations. It is often the most important networking tool you possess, because it is the easiest way to share contact information when meeting someone in person. A business card is a gateway to explaining your organizations mission, providing directions to gain more information.
