How to choose a business card box

Business card boxes are sturdy and decorative and can be displayed proudly on top of a desk instead of being hidden in a drawer.

What’s the big deal about business card boxes?

Today, along with specialty business card cases, people want specialised business card boxes for their desks. When receiving business cards in the standard unattractive, flimsy box, most people tuck it away in a drawer or put it on a shelf so as not to clutter up desk space with an eyesore. Today’s employees, are searching for decorative alternatives to the flimsy and soon torn box. As individuals spend more time at work, having a pleasant and interesting work space becomes important and attempting to make even functional items pleasing to the eye is a priority

Choosing a business card box

Many people might be surprised by the wide variety of available boxes. Before choosing a business card box, decide what you have in mind since there are so many options to select from. Are you looking for something whimsical? Floral? Abstract? Simple? Plain? What colours do you prefer? Size? (While standard business cards are 2” X 3.5” if you are self-employed or run your own business, you may decide on a larger card that provides for more information and boxes, come in multiple sizes to provide alternatives.) The simplest type, are chipboard white boxes which can be left open so that cards can be seen. In addition, these can be personally, yet easily decorated with stencils or merely by making a label box if you have access to a label maker. These boxes can also be customised in preferred colours and material finishes such as matt, foil, embossed, theme or patterned, or with different coloured graphics and the insides can be laminated. If you are looking for something with a bit more panache, designer business card holders also come in clear, tinted or frosted vinyl, plain or with foil stamped graphics (matt, gloss, metallic, or holographic foil) or in hard plastic see through or solid colours which can also be embossed. Both are perfect for clear plastic business cards. If a sturdier box is desired, wooden boxes made of rosewood or maple embellished with carved words, designs or graphics are extremely eye-catching. You don’t need to be artistic to buy a plain wooden or chipboard box and using anything you want, feathers, ribbons, small mirrors, sea glass, stamps, specialty or wrapping paper or decollage, to turn it into exactly the business card storage box you want to sit on your desk. Better yet, throw a "Decorating a Business Card Box" party for friends and co-workers. Have each person bring a box and some kind of decorating materials to be shared.
