Cards do not need to be very over the top to be memorable, all you have to do is make sure that the design aspect of it is covered. For many people the plain white card is the standard that they use, but this can be boring and actually make you forgettable. Having an interesting design, shape, color, or material will make you stand out. One of the best ways is to switch up the material completely. One good example is getting metallic cards made from someplace like Metal Kards which can make heavier, embossed or engraved cards. Having unique cards like this will make for a good conversation when you actually hand over the card, and it will be something someone won’t throw away because it is a cool thing to have. Having your card be noticeable will make sure that you are someone who is memorable and is easy to reach.
