I have spent a lot of time thinking about the steps that we entrepreneurs (mind you I said entrepreneurs not successful entrepreneurs) take that others don’t.
And aside of the common concepts like taking risk or being visionaries, etc – there are more real, tangle steps that we take that are the catalysts for our actions.
I’m actually not sure that it’s ok that we are having this discussion in 2015. I mean come on, we’re supposed to be cruising around in flying cars and the fact that the physical-paper business cards is a topic today is sorta lame. In any case, the question here is whether it’s important or not.
Yes. Absolutely. As digital as I want everything to be, paper-based business cards are still very important, especially at the approach or first time you meet someone; especially a prospect.
Gloss finish or Matte?
I think it depends on the design BUT I kinda think that having a nice glossy finish is never a bad thing. If I were to have to choose, I’d pick a gloss finish.
Biz Card Vendors
These are a few that I have used:
3.5 x 2 inches
add .125 of “bleed” and it should be saved in CMYK mode.
This post is in acknowledgement of my very dear friend Aslam Najeebdeen.
Why? — because we must acknowledge and support people in our lives — for no reason at all. Love and help others and good things will happen.
I met Aslam in early 2011 via a Ruby on Rails IRC chat room while trying to find software development help. I was one of the founders of a startup called Feedgen, which we were incubating at SF-based Angelpad. We had just raised a little money, but not enough to hire engineering help in Silicon Valley so we went offshore — Aslam was based in Sri Lanka. At first I didn’t interact much with Aslam because he was doing mostly front-end CSS, HTML, etc — and my co-founders were handling that stuff. I do remember our Skype interview and couldn’t help but feel that this guy was special.
