1. They’re A Step Up From Paper

This may seem like an obvious point, but we mean it, Wood Business Cards are a HUGE step up from paper cards. We can effectively replace your paper cards while offering better quality and more features, for instance:

  • Paper Cards Bend – Our Custom Wood Cards Don’t!
  • Paper Cards are easily lost in a pile of cards – Our Custom Wood Cards Stand out from the crowd!
  • Paper is (usually) extremely thin – Our Custom Wood Cards are 1mm Thick!

We could seriously go on and on about why Wood is the better choice but to put it simply, you will STAND OUT with Wood Business Cards because so many people have common paper cards.

2. Real Wood – for REAL impact

At My Wood Business Card, we utilize 100% real wood. Thus, our wood cards are light yet incredibly durable. Choose from 5 unique Wood Finishes sure to make an impact – all of which are very sturdy and ideal for frequent handling!

3. Made to LAST

A paper business card can only go through so much wear and tear before it loses its appeal. Bent corners, creases from wallets, rips, tears, water damage – the list goes on. Bet, you didn’t think of all the ways a paper card can be ruined…

On the other hand, a Wood Business Card is tough and can withstand regular use – it’s even biodegradable too! So, say goodbye to ruin cards when you upgrade to premium Wood Business Cards!

4. Tons of Customizations

Whether your card needs to look simple and professional or vibrant and fun, our Custom Wood Cards are the way to go. We offer an array of customization add-ons that includes

  • Full Color Printing (both sides)
  • Fully Custom Cut-Outs
  • Surface Etching – pick from 1 side or both
  • A Custom shape or Rounded Corner Design

5. Save Money

You may be wondering how does this save money? Just hear this out…

Paper cards look like the cost-efficient option, but in reality, they are lacking in many ways that could actually cost more! Here are a few ways we help you save money.

To make our point, we compared 100 custom wood cards to 100 paper cards:

  • Custom CutoutsWood Saves $225-475 on average
    • With paper cards, cutouts require a die to be purchased, we are talking $250-$500 minimum depending on the complexity of the cutouts.
    • Custom Wood Cards are laser cut, and only cost $.25 per card to add and you can have a complex cutout pattern.
  • Custom ShapesWood saves $245 on average
    • Once again paper requires a custom die if you want a custom shape be prepared to hand over $250 or more depending on the size and shape of the design.
    • Custom Wood Cards come standard with square corners, but you can upgrade to rounded corners or even a custom shape for only $.05 per card!
  • Adding Surface DepthWood saves about $275 on average
    • Paper Cards can be embossed but will usually require an upgrade to a thicker material plus a custom stamp for embossing – we are talking about a $300 upgrade on the average
    • Wood cards can be laser etched to add a bit of depth to the card – no need for a material upgrade, we offer a simple and cost-effective upgrade of $.25 per card.

Also, when you consider paper replacements – from damage, people throwing your card out and more. Cut costs by investing in cards that last! After all, a great business card should deliver a fantastic first impression while being cost-effective too!
