President’s Message: What is a Line Card?

After the last meeting, I had an EIW member follow-up with me. In that follow-up, she asked what a line card is and if I would mind explaining it. While responding to her I realized that other members may also have that same question so I wanted to take a minute to share with you the same information.

A “line card” or “one sheet” is a single piece of paper that quickly outlines your business’ capabilities. It should contain all of the relevant information that a prospective client would need to know when assessing your business. Some things to consider including are: full contact information, direct point of contact, your NAICS codes, insurance information, services your company provides, and past projects you have worked on.

Below is a link that will take you to the NAICS codes used to identify services offered within your business. If you click on that and then under downloads/reference file/tools on the left hand side of the page you can then click on the latest NAICS codes listing. There you can choose the one that best describes your product to use on your line card.
