If you’re not using the back of your card, you’re wasting an inexpensive method to catch and keep your customer’s attention. Here are some fun and useful ideas to get you started!

Good Tip: Add this info to existing business cards using self-adhesive address labels.

Better Tip:  Order Capture Cards!  They come pre-printed with removable labels on the card back – search for them on this business card printer site.
