Here is a business card item I really love. It is an 8 ½ x 11 inch clear acrylic sign holder with a business card holder built into the lower left corner. These are available from multiple sources online see Epinions.com, but I have purchased them locally at Office Depot.
This is why I really love this item. First of all you can use a standard catalog page or sell sheet as the sign or primary message. If you do not have a catalog page or sell sheet you can create something in your favorite DTP program. The advertising medium is slipped through a slot on the side that sandwiches the sign and holds it in place. This is all pretty standard so far. The part I love is the built-in business card holder – – that’s because standard sign holders require that the reader of your message remember the pertinent information or have the presence of mind to make a note. This sign with the business card holder means you can make your business card available, thus drastically improving the possibility of a prospective client taking action.
The clear acrylic will make your signage look glossy and great. However these are a bit pricey at just under ten bucks. So you might want to restrict their use in public to a place that is monitored to some degree because it is just too tempting to some inscrutable individuals who would consider converting your message carrier to their own use.
