Rack Card Design and Printing


well-designed rack card
Why spend money on quality marketing materials?
Potential customers get a "sneak preview" of your business from your marketing and advertising materials.
If your print materials look professional, customers will see you as a well-established business that will provide great service or sell quality products.
How will your print materials motivate your customers to "take the next step?"
Easy, attract attention while reinforcing your marketing message and image.
Direct the consumer to action with a great offer. Change up offers from "$1 off" or "Free Consultation" to a time-sensitive discount (valid daily before 11 am)or special VIP pass (when purchasing two or more tickets.)

How to design an effective rack card

What should your rack card look like?
Your Rack Card needs to catch the consumer’s attention within seconds.

* The very top of the card needs to have BOLD text stating the purpose of the card.
                 Example:    Boat Rentals  or   Golf     or     (your Business Name) Alhonna Resort
* The remaining top three inches need to include your logo and an awesome photo of a person having a great time.
(Boat Rental- on a boat, Resort- kids playing or fishing at your resort)
*Choose a service/product to feature on the remaining front of the card. Be clear in your message.
*The back of the card needs to have a similar header as the front of the card (in case it is displayed backwards.)
*The remaining back of your rack card should feature a call to action. "Show this card for a Free T-Shirt."
*All print materials need to include: Your Business Name, Address, Phone #, and Web Address. If space allows also add a Map and your Email address.

When designing a new rack card, it is always helpful to look at other cards. You can see what graphics and text impact you, be sure to visit our Rack Card Gallery to view other designs.

What should you expect from a well-designed rack card?
All marketing materials should contain a “call to action.” A well-designed rack card should produce your intended action from your end consumer, such as a reservation, a visit to your location, or a phone call.


Where are the best places to hand-out my rack card?

Where can I hand-out my rack card?
Give them out at trade show and festivals. Rack cards are great to have on hand to give to people requesting additional information on your business. Rack cards fit into a #10 envelope for mailers. A rack card can be designed as a self-mailer to feature a new product / service or an event.
