How to use square cards for more than just business cards
Square business cards are the hot new trend. And for good reason. It’s unlikely if you hand a new acquaintance a square business card that they won’t take a good long look at it. But these little square cards are more than just for networking and they’re a great way to grab people’s attention and drive business. We’ve put together six ways to use square business cards for more than just networking.
1. Upgrade Your Business Card
Carrying business cards is still important and a great networking tool. Upgrade your business card to a sleek square card with sharp or rounded corners. Simply add your company logo on one side and your key details on the other. This will help you stand out in a pile of business cards both from a design and shape standpoint. Take it to an even higher level and rotate your artwork 45 degrees into a diagonal card to really showcase your design.
2. Customer Appreciation Cards
Next time you mail out a customer order, tuck a customer appreciation card inside. Include your branding logo at the top and a hashtag on the bottom as a reminder for your customer to share on their own social media handle should they choose. Leave space to write a special handwritten note to thank them for their order.
3. Coupons & Promo Cards
On the back of the customer appreciation card mentioned previously, simply include a coupon or special promotion to encourage future purchases. Your customer will not only appreciate the handwritten sentiment but the special offer will lead them to keep the card for a future purchase.
4. Pricing Cards
Square cards can come in handy for retail pricing or product displays as well for in-packing. They can be laid flat on a table next to merchandise or propped in cardholders in front of your products. Include your logo and product name on front with the price, style and other important information on the back.
5. Gift Cards
Gift cards are a great add-on item to your product line. They give customers the ability to share their love for your products with friends and family. The small square size paired with a unique envelope makes them the perfect fit for tucking into packaging or gift bags. For extra appeal, choose a pearlized material to add some luxurious sheen to your gift cards.
6. Square Tags
