Before we search for a name card printing service, we have to make sure that we have a good design first. The ideal business card should convey a feeling of what really matters to your business while likewise giving valuable data about your organization and your part in it. In spite of the fact that there is a restricted space, by utilizing the space wisely, you will give individuals something beyond your name and address when you give them your card.
Tip: Nothing ruins a decent business card like utilizing an individual email address, so in the event that you haven’t, set up your free business email address before making your business cards.
Step 1: Choose Where You Want your Cards Made
There are three essential alternatives with regards to making your business cards:
- Order from an online printer
- Work with your local printer
- Do it yourself.
When you choose where you need to get your business cards made, you can begin designing your business cards.
Step 2: Decide What Information You Want on the Card
At the very least you need to have the accompanying data on your card:
- Your first and last name
- Your business name
- Your work title
- Telephone number – You can pick between a local number, 800 number, or vanity number for your name card.
- Email address – Make sure that you’re not utilizing an individual email address on your business card.
Keep in mind that there is a constrained measure of space, and you would prefer not to pack all this data on your business card. Pick the data that is most important for your kind of business to highlight.
Step 3: Design Your Card
There are a couple of choices for designing your card:
- Use a premade template
- Design yourself
- Hire a professional Designer
- Work with the printing company directly
We recommend utilizing a premade template as is free, and the layouts can be customized with your organization’s logo and data.
Step 4: Choose Your Font(s)
Keep in mind that comprehensibility is the most vital thing while picking your font style, so you need to avoid decorative fonts styles. We utilize Copperplate Gothic for our cards. Here is a rundown of fonts styles from Prepressure.com that for the most part look great in print.
Avoid difficult to read font styles, similar to the font in the card above.
If you utilize more than one font text style on the card then it should be complimentary and it is not recommended to utilize more than two. Keep in mind that you can utilize distinctive sizes and bolding to make the critical parts, like your business name, be noticeable.
If you are unsure, utilize the default font that is in the template you are picking.
Step 6: Add your Info and Logo
You can without much work transfer an image record of your logo and crop it so it will fit in the space saved for the logo. This obviously assumes you have chosen to utilize your logo on your card, which is recommended.
The ideal business cards have to be accessible, very well designed, and reflective of your business. If you require some inspiration to help you make your business cards, look at these business cards that we cherish.
