I used to have very plain and boring business cards. I felt that they did their purpose, plus I really could not afford anything classier. Well, that is what I thought anyway, but it turns out I could have if I had gone to a different company that does printing in Brisbane instead of the one I had chosen. By luck, the company I had used was closed for several days, which made me look elsewhere. I had been thinking of upgrading my business card to something splashier, and I was going to see what kind of price my former company could offer me.
I was not going to go with anything too grande. I just wanted a bit of color, and perhaps a nicer font. I figured those two things were something I could afford at that point. However, like I said, that printer was not open due to a family emergency. I did not want to wait, so I looked around and found another printer that is not that far from me. When I called for an appointment, I was able to be seen immediately. I took my old business card over so they could see what I had been using.
When I told them how much I paid for it and why I wanted to just add a bit of color, they completely understood my reasoning. They did tell me that I had been grossly overcharged though. The person I was talking with told me how much they would have charged for the cards I had been using, and I knew I had found a new printing company. They went over all my options with me, from the font and finish to colors and images. I never thought I could afford an image on my card, let alone one that a printer created for me. They designed such a gorgeous and brilliant card for me, and the price was less than I had expected. They now do all of my printing needs!
