Why are metal cards more expensive than paper cards?
Metal business cards are a completely different manufacturing process than printing. Your cards are made from 100% Genuine 304 Stainless Steel .5mm thick, and chemically-etched with your custom artwork.
For this process, we must:
.1 ) Produce custom vector artwork for you.
.2 ) Create a custom ‘film-tool’ to make your cards.
.3 ) Prep the stainless steel sheets for etching.
.4 ) Etch your cards in a series of acid-based solutions.
.5 ) Add-on features require additional card processes.
.6 ) Individually inspect and prepare each card for delivery.
Initially, Custom Metal Business Cards may be more expensive than paper cards, but the return on investment for handing someone a Metal Business Card is so much more than a paper card.
It’s 100% guaranteed that you can hand out thousands of paper cards over the course of your career and never receive the same reaction that you would from handing out 100 Custom Metal Business Cards.
In fact, many of our clients have told us that their Custom Metal Business Cards alone is what landed their largest revenue business clients!
This is a quality over quantity situation.
Regardless of closing the deal or not, your Custom Metal Business Cards will strike up conversation and the prospect will end up keeping your business card, often for years in his or her wallet. People just don’t throw away metal like they would with a paper card.
Not only will they will hold onto your card, but they’ll probably even show it to others because it’s so unique and eye-catching. Here at Mission Media Agency NZ, we offer the high quality, Custom Metal Business Cards you need to instantly stand out and make that lasting impression.
Furthermore showing that you care enough to represent yourself with a quality product will result in your clients having the reassurance that you will invest in them as well.
Simply put, paper cards are a waste of money because people don’t keep them – they don’t stand out, and they don’t make the impact you need to make valuable connections.
If clients don’t keep your card, they won’t remember you.
Standing out in business is the biggest priority and will give you an edge over your competition. Don’t make the mistake of handing out flimsy, cheap, paper cards that do no justice for you as a professional. Invest in Metal Business Cards today, you won’t regret it, and over the years, so will your budget.
