The Importance of Business Cards for Subs!
The Importance of Business Cards among subs is something that many people debate. Since the influx of technology and websites that offer printing services more and more people have been turning to the internet to make everything from cards, address labels, and much more.
A new trend as of late has been for a substitute teacher to leave a business card with their substitute note for the teacher they are covering for. The cards sometimes have a pretty design or unique motif. The information on their card is any and all pertinent information pertaining to their work as a sub.
Information commonly included on sub’s business cards:
- Full Name
- Email Address
- Home and Cell Phone Numbers
- Substitute ID (if this pertains to where they work)
- Certification Area
All of this information provides important details to the teacher they came in for. There are a lot of benefits to taking the time to create business cards. They can be well worth the fee to create, particularly if you hunt down some online deals to save yourself some money.
What are these benefits? Well one of the first things to consider is the impression it gives the teacher when they return to class to see a neatly written note with a business card. It speaks volumes about your professionalism and responsibility.
Additionally it provides and all information the teacher could need if they wanted to contact you because they had a question about your letter or how the day went. If you mention that in your note you show a vested interest in the class and how it went.
Most importantly it provides all the teacher needs to know in order to request you as a substitute for them in the future. It can make it very convenient for them to specifically request you. Also, adding your certification can let them know if they could recommend you to fellow teachers.
Overall business cards could be considered a wise investment for substitute teachers.
