Art Marketing Tips: Business Cards

Business cards are an essential part of art marketing. If you want to make a living as an artist, a simple 2x3 inch card can make a real difference.

Another problem I find is that some of the artists I do receive cards from are so obscure, that after a few months in my possession, I forget why I have their card. As an artist, it's not enough to have your name and title with a phone number on your business card. That may work for an attorney, but the typical artist casts a much wider net.

Your card has to do double duty. It has to showcase the style of your work in some way, either by using an image from your collection of art or have enough wording on it that people will connect you with your art.

Vistaprint is a good source for creative professionals, they offer great deals and are always offering a freebie with purchase.

However, my personal favorite business card site is Moo . They allow you to print multiple images in one pack, and their unique mini cards are very versatile. These little cards are great for art shows since customers can take the one with their favorite image on it and that tiny bit of personal service, makes them more likely to follow up with a visit to your online portfolio or website.

But whatever company you use, be sure to prominently state your email and website address, or a join me on Facebook or other social networking site link. Your physical address is unimportant, unless you have an open to the public studio or don't mind company. When listing your title, you may want to specify the type of artist you are exactly. Are you a muralist or a sculptor? Do you do commission portraits or abstracts? It makes a difference when people look back in their wallets and pull out your card. Sure they loved you at your gallery showing on the island last month, but will they remember why?

Now that you have your cards, get them into the hands of every potential customer or contact.

With a well designed card that has a photo of your best work on the front and directions to your online portfolio, handing them out is easy. It's a way of sharing a piece of your work with people and that is why you are an artist, right?

Business card promoting is really just a matter of extending your reach, leaving a card for your doctor, dentist, their receptionist, the vet and the bank manager is a way of promoting your business without being pushy. Business cards are common place and not an intrusion.

Business cards also infuse a greater sense of professionalism into your career. This goes a long way in building your business.
