When is the last time you updated your Medicare insurance agent business cards? If it’s been a while—or if you’ve never ordered any—now is a great time to get a new batch made. There are many options for creating personalized business cards. Here are seven print and digital business card providers to consider.
Printed Business Cards

They also offer an eco-friendly Cotton Business Card option made from recycled T-shirt fabric. You can choose between the standard business card size (3.5 x 2.0), the "MOO" card size—a bit bigger than the standard—a square shape or even mini cards! To top it off, you can add gold or silver foil or a raised spot gloss to really shine through the deck.

Digital Business Cards

- Switchit: Enjoy using the leading digital business card app with Switchit. You can easily create digital business cards, share your card with anyone, include a profile video and follow up with clients quickly. The app contains SMART contact management which allows you to call or text contacts, add new contacts, export them to your phone and even write personalized notes to remember key details. Its other popular features include custom branding, file attachment, a business card scanner, calendar integration and more. You can take advantage of its free package and create up to four business cards for you and your practice.
While electronic cards work well for conferences and networking with other professionals, paper cards still work best when you’re interacting with your Medicare clients, enclosing them in thank you notes and attending in-person networking events. It may be best to have both a print and digital card for your business to be ready for any opportunity.
Finally, don’t let your business refresh stop with your business cards. If you have other items used for your business such as flyers, letters or a website, be sure to update or refresh your content. Don’t forget to have a Compliance Officer review all items to be sure they remain compliant – an added benefit for Western Asset Protection agents who trust our in-house Compliance Officer, Jean Lentsch, to review the items.
