How to Put Some “Wow!” in Your Presentations

When meeting a new prospective customer face to face, we often exchange business cards with them. Paper business cards are easily crumpled, dirtied or lost. Often, they’re buried in a stack of cards on someone’s desk or credenza. Unless they’re thrown away.

Want to make an impression? Give your customer a laser engraved aluminum business card and watch their response.

I have a friend who’s an eye doctor; he owns an office suite across the hall from mine, and visits me several times a week. After stopping by recently and noticing my new aluminum cards on my desk for the first time, his response was “WOW, those look great!”

In the nearly three decades I’ve been in the business world, I can’t remember one instance where a paper card grabbed someone’s attention like that.

When you give your customers an aluminum business card, you’re leaving an impression with impact. A color, metal name plate with crisp, laser engraved letters screams “Our company and its products are First Class… We’re Creative… Not Like Everyone Else…”

Aluminum cards are more likely to be found on your customer’s desk and less likely to get lost or trashed. They also help keep your company in your customer’s mind.

Our aluminum cards are 3.385” x 2.125” x .0078” thick, and come with radiused corners. Three colors are available: black, blue and gold. You provide us with your logo and text, and then our factory in China will laser engrave the design onto the anodized aluminum plate. There are no set up fees. 

$155.00 gets you 250 cards, FOB Colorado Springs, Colorado.

Want to see a sample? Email me your address and I’ll send you one of my Global Trade cards. Otherwise, just email me your logo and contact information and we’ll get started.

The Chinese New Year Holiday

Chinese manufacturing companies will shut down from the week of January 25 through February 15 for their Chinese New Year holiday. This means that if an order doesn’t ship by January 25, it probably won’t go out until early March. With factory production schedules packed to make the January 25 deadline, orders that are placed now probably won’t make it out in time (but we’ll always try).

Please keep this in mind when planning your inventory needs.
