What are the Important Things to Remember When Designing a Business Card?

Your business card tells a lot about your brand or business. Designing and printing a great business card often puts you miles ahead of the competition in the mind of a potential customer. In general, even professionally printed business cards are inexpensive. To create personalized business cards that showcases your brand or business in the best possible way, consider tips on how to design and print the best possible business card for your brand or company.

1.) Add your product/service to your card

How many times have you looked through your business calling card collection only to discover cards that had names and contact information but no idea about the company or brand? In networking situations, these cards can be useless as recipients may collect several cards and then enter them into a contact management program.

2.) Design your business logo professionally.

If you have a penchant for design, you may want to design your logo for your business. However, avoid using clip-art or web-art as your company logo. The graphics quality is very low for such artwork. A professionally designed logo will provide you with high-quality graphics files that can be used when creating your calling card.

3.) Always keep the business card updated with the latest information.

Most people get annoyed when they receive a card with a phone number, a pen, and a new one written on it. In fact, in today's world with the potential for fraud, many people will simply toss a card if a number gets scratched and a new one is written. If your phone number, email address, or address changes, print a new batch of calling cards with current information.

4.) Order your business cards in bulk.

Unless you have a very good reason to print small batches of cards, as you know you will be changing places of business soon, order your cards in bulk. You'll save a lot of money by ordering in bulk and you'll be more lenient about handing out cards just because you have to leave them.
