A document which lists the name, description and manufacturer of goods provided by a company, a line card is useful for businesses marketing many items from different suppliers. As an outline, the organized nature of the information makes it easy for a prospective supplier or client to see what types of goods are offered as well as identifies the manufacturer. A line card may be a printed sheet, part of a brochure, on a website, or as a downloadable document.
Obtain a comprehensive list of goods offered or marketed by the company.
Determine the manufacturer of each item on the list.
Decide how the list will be arranged. Traditionally, a line sheet may be grouped alphabetically or categorically. Arrange the data in the selected order.
Decide what format you wish to make your line sheet available in. If you are using it as part of a website, it may be included on the website or as a downloadable document or brochure.
Distribute your line card.
