Business cards are more than just an introduction. Every single one is a real opportunity to land a new job opportunity or even a contract. At the end of the day we all judge by the cover, and as such a great presentation on a business card can be a great persuasion tool.
“Business opportunities are like buses, there’s always another one coming.”
– Richard Branson.
However, most of us just aren’t graphic designers by profession. If you are like me then you probably don’t know how to design a card, to begin with. To top it all off most print stores either demand that you already have a finalized design or ask exorbitant prices for a design. So in my experience business cards were a complex topic to handle. But thankfully Aura Print arrived to change that.
Aura Print Review: Simplifying the business card process
Most of us have no idea what we want on a business card, and Aura Print seems to be aware of it. As soon as you visit their website you’ll see a short brief explaining their services and materials, and then it goes right into the designs. Their landing page has a great selection of templates listed, 21 different aura business cards all in all. The photo quality is flawless and this allows you to have a clear idea of how each style of the card will turn out before making a purchase. In short, this is brilliant, it streamlines the process and allows you to pick a style that fits your professional profile. Plus with all the variety you are bound to find one style just for you.
And once you have settled on the right design for your new business cards all you need to do is to click on shop now. You’ll be immediately redirected to the product description page without any more hassle.
No shortage of options
Once you are on the product page for your chosen card you’ll come face to face to an endless amount of customization options. While Aura Print has a wide selection of pre-existing designs, you can modify everything about them. It’s up to you to choose the orientation, paper quality and even shape of your card. So Aura Print offers the basic idea, but you have the final word.
The best part however is just how easy it is to tinker with all these options. While other companies would leave you a simple comment box to write all those details, everything on the Aura Print website is interactive. There are large buttons for every option, and they all are linked together. So if you change the orientation of your card the rest of the options will reflect this. Choosing the perfect design for your card won’t take much time, and the cost will be updated in real-time as you play with the options.
Last but not least Aura Print allows you to send them a finalized logo or artwork design to use in the card, but they also offer the option to design it themselves. Leaving the design to them does cost more, but it’s a great option if you are just starting and don’t have any graphical resources.
Once you filled in all those details, which will barely take a minute. All you need to do is to head to the cart and log in to your account. The payment and manufacturing process is almost as fast as the website experience itself. I ordered some new cards for Tech on the Go ready for when events start to open up again later this year and couldn’t be happier with them.
And all in all, it is so handy that I don’t see myself going back to other printer shops soon.
