Business cards are one of the best ways to get noticed and be remembered. An eye-catching business card design featuring vital information can help others remember you and your business. It’s important for even small businesses and freelancers to have a noticeable and useful business card. These days it’s easier and less expensive than ever before to create a unique business card that fits any business.
Before you dive in and buy 1000’s of business cards featuring a bland template, consider these tips:
1) Determine your most important information
You can’t fit every detail about your company on a single business card. Luckily, you don’t have to. Figure out exactly what needs to be said and how to say it. The business name, services, contact info, and social media handles are all good pieces of information to include on a business card.
2) Find a business card design that you like
Every business card printer has templates available, but very few are one-size-fits-all. Consider the type of business you run and the type of visuals you might have on your business card. Look around at designs used by others in your industry for inspiration. Also, be sure to consider your typeface, which can really send a strong visual.
3) Consider your brand
Do you already use a certain font or color scheme for your promotional materials? Does your business have an eye-catching logo? Make sure these are featured on your business card. The more unified your materials can look, the better.
4) Choose a size and shape
Believe it or not, you can have a business card that’s not a standard rectangle! Very few people tend to have vertical business cards or ones that are cut in unique shapes, but these cards stand out from the pack. Think about the shape and size of your card as a way to make an impact.
5) Select your business card material
Another common misconception is that all business cards must be made of cardstock. However, there are tons of different thicknesses available. Some business cards are even made of plastic or metal. Business cards that feel different are much more likely to be remembered.
6) Take advantage of the back
There’s a whole space available on the backside of your business card, so use it! Some companies opt to provide an appointment space or a notation space. These are great options for making the card more useful.
7) Create more than just a card
Speaking of useful, business cards can do so much more than advertise your company. Cards can be printed on magnets for use on a refrigerator. They can be used as gift tags on a box or bag. There are endless options when it comes to creating a business card that will stay at the forefront of someone’s mind.
8) Proofread! Proofread! Proofread!
Possibly the most important thing to remember when creating a business card is to proofread your work. Nobody wants to order boxes of business cards only to later discover a typo! Make sure every letter is in the right place and every detail is correct before placing an order.
Business cards are still an essential part of networking. Done right, these small cards can make a big statement and make your business memorable to potential clients.
