In a business your first impression should always be amazing. A business card is something that can help you achieve that only if it is designed in a perfect way. A business card should always give a good impression about you. Following are some of the things that you should take care of while designing a business card.
1. Choose Right Colors:
Never choose such colors that are harsh or unpleasing. A mixing of bright colors in your card might make your card stand out but not in a good way. Try choosing such color for your business card which is the theme of your business website, email signature, etc. This can help creating a professional image of your business and yourself
2. Avoid Borders:
Try avoiding the borders in your business card. This is because your cards might give a good look with borders but you will not always have perfect edges after your card design is cut. So it is good to avoid borders rather than to have some imperfect shaded edges.
3. Make Sure Your Content Is Readable:
This is very common thing to take care of. When you give someone your business card, you wouldn’t want them to have eye strains while trying to read what’s actually written in your card. So make sure the text you chose is in readable font with bold colors. Do not keep your text below 8 pt as this might look fuzzy after printed.
4. Add Important Information:
Do not just provide your name, email and a contact number at the back of your business card but make sure there is enough useful information printed that might be helpful for client. Some important information includes your name, your designation, your services, your contacts and a QR code. There are a lot of software that provide QR code generating services for free.
Choosing the right paper for your business card is also very essential. Keep three things in mind while selecting the paper for your business card; its weight, finish and design. You card should be sturdy enough so that it stays perfect in your card holder or wallet. The design should match with the color and texture of the paper you choose and at last, the finish. Choose what finish looks best with your card for example if the design looks best in matte, then chose the matte paper.
These are some essential things to consider before designing a business card for you. Following are some of the inspirational examples of beautifully designed business cards.
