    I'm in the middle of making up some business cards to hand to customers once i've knocked and spoken to them.

    Should I put anything on the back?

    An arranged appointment
    I called but you wasnt in
    I cleaned your windows but you wasnt in to collect money ect ect

    How do you deal with these? Keep them separate?

    I got mine of vista print £20 for 500 with plain backs..expensive if you do the backs
    If I quote for someone not in or say I've been I write on the back..takes 2 secs and saves money

    Right I'm just about to design some business cards and leaflets, what sites do you use other than vista print?

    What information should I include on both the business card and leaflet?

    one tip i can give you to jazz up cards is to buy a roll of clear packaging tape .Staples sell it / and apply it to the front face of Vistaprint cards-this gives a REALLY glossy finish,like glass .

    Vista is good nowadays..and cheap
    I use em as flyers when needed and for quotes..you were cleaned etc
    At 20 quid for 500 they are throwaway items..give a custy a few for their friends etc

    Hi, I went on vista print and just ordered 2500 A6 flyers for £33 and they look amazing. Everyone compliments them PLUS they are big enough to leave your own message on the reverse side :)
