Business Card Design is often forgotten in the rush to get them printed. Marketing in Essex charge as little as £10 for 250 printed business cards. A box of 50 business cards could last you a whole year.
Take a Chartered Accountant for example. Careful design is required which could take a few attempts to get approved by a customer.
Even then changes will keep coming and need to be reproofed with the customer to ensure the artwork is 100% correct.
Then we go to print.
