Any business that you plan on continuing to work on for the foreseeable future is going to require you to make some tough choices at any given point in time. Most of these choices would have something or the other to do with the logistics of your enterprise in some way, shape or form, but don’t forget that there are other decisions that need to be made as well such as the kinds of business cards that you are going to end up using as well as the level of quality that you would want each and every card to adhere to.
We feel that people should try out small batches of metal business cards to start off with. A big part of the reason why that is the case has to do with the fact that you never know if your design is going to look truly good on your business card in the end, and spending a ton of cash on a large batch might make it so that you are stuck with the improper design for a period of time that you would really not be all that comfortable with at all.
That said, chances are that you would need a number to keep in mind. This number should be somewhere between fifty to a hundred cards. This number is low enough that it would prevent you from wasting too many cards if the design doesn’t look as good as you had hoped, but what’s even more important is that if the cards do turn out right the number would be sufficient to let you distribute them without fear of running out at all.
