Upholstery comes from two Middle English words "up" and "holden." When combined the term "upholstery" was coined to reflect the ability of upholstery to "hold up" the furniture's occupant. Upholstery can be made up of fabrics, springs, webbing, leather or padding, and it is generally applied by an upholsterer.
Don't be lured by companies offering you free or cheap business cards. Free and cheap cards often come with a hefty price that is usually not realized until later. Read more about this unfortunate business practice on our Safe Information Business Cards page.
An upholsterer is an artisan that adds padding and fabric to wooden or metal frames to create furniture. General upholsterers normally work for furniture manufacturers and they typically specialize in industrial or residential furniture upholstery. They use industrial sewing machines, hammers, tacks, nails, glue and stretchers to complete their work. If you are an upholsterer that works for a furniture manufacturer then you will want to create an upholstery themed business card. Don't forget to add how many years of experience you have to your card's byline.
While general upholsterers work with standardized plans for the pieces that they complete, custom upholsterers work with their clients to create unique upholstery designs. Generally they will use the fabric, padding, shape and finishing items that their client wants to use to create a piece that will work with the other pieces of furniture in the home. Custom upholsterers get most of their work from referral business generated by past customers and from interior designers. Because of this, it is critical that you have a great looking business card that you can hand out to people you come in contact with. Print a special offer on the back of your business card to improve the value of your business card.
While upholsterers are typically associated with the furniture industry, they also work with the auto industry. Upholsterers that specialize in auto interiors help to design, create and refurbish car upholsteries. If you are a vehicle upholsterer then your business card will need to focus on cars or trucks. If you specialize in custom car upholstery then you will need to also customize your business card to reflect your dedication to the auto customization industry.
Boat manufacturers and owners also need upholsterers to finish their interiors. Marine upholsterers need to have special knowledge of moisture resistant fabrics and materials. They also need to know how to cater to their clientele. If you are a marine upholsterer then you need to create a business card that has a water theme or a boat theme.
