If you own your own law practice, you've probably always got one eye on your bottom line. Cost-cutting measures are a must if you (and your employees) want to get paid.
Attorney business cards are an essential in this business, but they can be incredibly pricey. They don't have to be. If you want to get professional-looking business cards on the cheap, you can. You just need to turn to the Internet.
The first steps in reaching this goal require you to research, research, research. You're good at that, right?
If you are, hit up the net and look for web-based printing companies. They tend to be significantly cheaper than brick-and-mortar locations. But just like these locations, some are better than others. So look at message boards and rating sites to see what fits your needs. Be sure to look for reviews about print and paper quality, since these can make or break a card. Also check return policies.
Once you've picked a printer, start researching your card design. Do a search for attorney business cards and jot down your ideas. Is there something you really like? How about really hate? Do you respond well to any particular layouts, designs or fonts?
Make a quick sketch of what you want your card to look like. Now it's time to build your attorney business card.
Almost all of these sites have ready-made templates you can use and edit for free. Scroll through them until you find a template that looks most like your design. Then go in and edit it -- color, font, information. You should also be able to upload an image file if you have your firm's logo on hand. If not, you'll likely find dozens of other images you can use.
Before you submit your card for printing, print it out on regular paper so you can check font size and spacing. Each time you tweak the card, print it out. Once satisfied, go ahead and send it in for printing. You're done.
