QR code business cards have become increasingly popular in recent years, and for good reason. They offer a number of benefits over traditional business cards, while still maintaining a lot of the look and feel of a traditional business card. With all this in mind, I've designed a new QR code business card template for customers to personalize at Zazzle.
But what is a QR code business card? Simply put, it's a business card that includes a QR code, which is a two-dimensional barcode that can be scanned using a smartphone or tablet. The QR code can contain information related to your business or profession, like a link to your website, LinkedIn profile, portfolio, or even a video.
So why should you consider using a QR code business card?
Here are a few benefits:
1. They're more convenient for the recipient.
Traditional paper business cards can be easy to lose or misplace. With a QR code business card, the recipient can simply scan the code and save your contact information directly to their phone's address book. This eliminates the need for them to manually enter your information, which can be time-consuming and error-prone.
2. They offer more space for information.
Traditional paper business cards have limited space, which means you have to be selective about the information you include. With a QR code business card, you can include much more information without worrying about running out of space. This could include a brief bio, links to your social media profiles, or even a video introducing yourself or your business.
3. They're more engaging.
A QR code business card can be a conversation starter. When someone scans the code, they'll be taken to a landing page that could include a video, a portfolio of your work, or other interactive content. This can help you stand out from the crowd and make a memorable impression on potential clients or partners.
4. They're more versatile.
QR codes can be used in a variety of ways beyond business cards. You could include them on your website, in your email signature, or even on promotional materials like flyers or posters. This means you can use the same code to provide contact information, direct people to your website, or share other types of content.
If you're looking for a modern and effective way to share your contact information and promote your business, a QR code business card is definitely worth considering. Paired with an eye catching design, your business card is sure to catch the attention of potential clients!
Creating Your QR Code Business Card
My pre-designed business card design templates are easy to personalize, and you can even remove or change the elements if you want more of a personalized look.
First, choose the design for your cards. With over 70 designs to choose from, you're sure to find one that suits your businesses unique style. I've showcased a few of my QR code designs below!
The other thing you should consider is the size of your business card. The majority of my cards are designed on the standard 3.5" x 2" by default, but you have a few other card size options to choose from. If you choose a larger size than standard, you can move around all of the elements on my layout to make it your own.
Next, personalize the card! In the "Personalize this template" section, you'll be able to add your name, profession, social handles, contact info, and a URL to create your QR code. Try to pick a link for your QR code that provides extra information relating to your business - a link to an intro video, store location page, or about me page on your website are all good options!
Once you are satisfied with how your business information looks on the card, you can choose the paper type & corner type of your cards. On Zazzle, you have the option of choosing rounded or classic corners.
There are also 12 different paper types you can choose for your card, including standard matte, semi-gloss, UV gloss, cream, premium silk, premium linen, premium pearl, premium Kraft and more!
When you're ready to check out, be sure to check the offers page on zazzle! They often run sales on their product, so your purchase may be eligible for a coupon or additional discount.
