Business Card Design
Your Business Card is often the first–and sometimes the only–impression that people get of your company. Thus, you should shop around for the perfect business card design–or design your own, if necessary. Your business card should be simple, yet memorable, and have all of your contact information–name, phone number, fax number, email address, website address, and social media details.
Most business cards are boring. They just are, there’s no getting around it. In highly saturated industries, however, a well-designed business card is central to making your brand stand out. And I’m not talking crazy, unrealistic designs; a properly designed card doesn’t just look good, it’s highly functional.
Let’s take a look at the key components of a standard business card:
- Company name/logo
- Your name, in large font
- Your title, in smaller font
- Contact information: Address, phone, fax, email, social media accounts.
- 3 ½” x 2″ size
- White background, black ink, maybe a splash of color
- Blank on reverse
Even if you don’t have a job or want to promote your company, having personal business cards is a fun way to share your email address, cell phone number and social media links. That way if you meet a new friend at a bar or run into an old colleague on the subway, you can give them a way to get in touch.
