Old and new business cards
A small card with company data, and so many possibilities ... Business cards in Poland even 5-10 years ago were associated with white cartons, overloaded information. For this they were poorly made, and their design was calling for vengeance to heaven.
Today, companies with white-card business cards are still meeting, but fortunately there are more and more companies focusing on modernity.
So what should include such a modern business card - first of all a logotype, clearly visible, preferably not neighboring with any other element. A phone number is not necessary at all and a lot depends on the industry. Recently, the address of the site is more and more often used instead. Modern business card puts on minimalism and simplicity - what my opinion makes a much better better impression than the old type of business cards.
Printing is needed, no one has doubts about it, but are they just as necessary as 20 years ago? This is a debatable issue, but certainly the market needs and consumer demand have changed a bit.
The production of marketing materials increased significantly - leaflets, banners, promotional leaflets, and advertisements - and decreased the production of books and magazines, mainly due to the popularization of the Internet. Will we wait for the times when printers, DTP operators and printing house owners will have to look for a new job?
About printing companies
Paints, inks, paper, toners, foils and other consumables - these are things that can not be missing from printing plants. They are ordered wholesale and also consumed in bulk. For each order, the production costs are optimized, and the appropriate technique and type of printing is selected.
Graphic designers, DTP operators and printers deal with this. They are responsible for the quality of the printout and as soon as something is wrong they are the first to be targeted by the dissatisfied boss. Their work is quite hard and I have to admit that you have to really have a fuss to do it. Work after hours, maximum focus and responsibility - definitely not work for everyone.
