A lot of people seem to be under the impression that only business owners and people making investments in the stock market will require business cards at any given point in time. The thing is, business cards can be a vital resource for several other kinds of individuals as well such as artists and the like. A big part of the reason why that is the case has to do with the fact that artists often need to network really heavily in order to get eyes on their projects in some way, shape or form, and business cards let them do that to pretty great effect.
However, you can’t add dry or corporate looking things to your metal cards if you want to use them in your capacity as an artist. Suffice it to say that if your card looks a bit too corporate people would not take you seriously and they would assume that you are the sort of artists that has sold out before they have created art that has actual cultural and political value in the world around us.
Hence, the key to making a business card for an artist is to add as many social media handles as possible instead of a brand name, logo, designation or anything else in that vein. Social media is your best tool for spreading the word about any and all art that you are trying to complete in a relatively timely fashion, and you can use your business cards to funnel more people to these accounts as well. Another thing that you can try is adding a bit of your art to your business cards as a teaser.
