With frequent business changes, it’s important to regularly refresh your business cards to keep information accurate. Follow these tips from Metal Kards to determine optimal timing:
Whenever your name, business name, title, logo or branding changes substantially, new cards are needed as soon as possible to avoid confusion. Don’t wait until old card stocks run out.
Likewise, change cards immediately if your main contacts like phone number, email or website are altered or outdated. Using incorrect contact info equates to lost business and looks unprofessional.
If your business moves locations, refresh cards right away even if other details stay the same. An outdated address suggests instability to new contacts trying to find you.
When adding or removing significant services, certifications, awards or specializations, update cards to showcase your most accurate credentials and offerings. Don’t misrepresent your expertise.
Every 2-3 years, give your card design an overhaul to keep your brand fresh—especially if your aesthetic has evolved. Don’t get stuck on outdated looks.
As card stocks deplete, proactively reorder your existing design every 6-12 months. Letting supplies fully run out results in missed sharing opportunities. Stay replenished.
Routinely have new title variants, like “Sales Manager” versus “Account Executive,” printed for colleagues moving into new roles with the company.
Occasional small quantity reorders between major updates can work to use up existing designs. But don’t drag outdated branding on too long.
With digital printing services like Metal Kards Answers, reorders and design changes are fast and affordable. Place orders in small batches to maintain flexibility.
Stay vigilant about swapping any incorrect or obsolete card details right away. And refresh the overall look biannually or so. Prompt card updates are a pillar of good business.
