In this write up, we will be looking at the important elements of good business cards, as we will be also be highlighting the design and print process. While it might be good to state that designing and printing a business card entails nothing more than creating an astonishing design, it is however important to remember that the goal of every branding effort is to reflect your brand.
Key elements of a good business card design
To make a business card stand out, the business card should at least capture the following design processes.
Choose A Size & Shape
Naturally, business cards come in a standard size and shape; which is mostly a rectangular design (either horizontal or vertical) which is roughly 3.5″ by 2″ in diameter. So it is very important that you don’t use an oversized or undersized card in the designing and printing of your business card.
Set Up Your File
Setting up your file for a print design (i.e. business cards) varies a little from a web project as there are a few extra things that you need to think about.
You need to make sure you make provision and account for bleed and trim in your design. This is to ensure that your finished business card turns out as planned and that there are no unexpected white lines or text cut-offs.
Know What Information To Include
The primary purpose of any business card is to give prospective clients/customers to contact information related to your business. There is always the temptation of getting carried away with the information to include, as many designers just include any type of information on the business card. This no doubt can be very confusing and in most cases will make the card to appear clustered and ugly.
As a general rule of thumb though, all business cards should contain the following information:
- Telephone number
- Email address
- Website URL
Optional extras include:
- Twitter handle
- Facebook URL
- Job title
Make Sure The Design Is Unique
If you really want to create a lasting impression with your business card, you need to make sure that your design is unique. Obviously, almost any business card design will be unique, but the more unique and ‘branded’ you can make your card, the more of an impact it is likely to have on the recipient.
You should therefore let your own personality and design style drive the design. For instance, if you are a simple person, your design should reflect that. And if you are a vibrant, energetic and colorful person, it would make sense to create a colorful and impressive business card.
Make Use Of A Fun Concept
Making use of a fun design concept is another way to ensure that your business card is unique and makes a lasting impression. The fun concepts in business card design though requires a little bit of creativity, so you must be willing to allow the creative juice to flow when designing your business card and integrating the fun concept to it. You can create a business card around literally any concept you can think of, so long as it represents your brand.
Use A QR Code
The whole point of your business card is to introduce a potential customer/client to your business and also, to provide them with the necessary contact details in the hope that they will contact you and hire your services (or buy a product from you).
The problem is, a business card doesn’t contain much information about your business in general. It is for this reason that most modern day business cards will feature a web address so that the prospective client/customer can find out more information about your business and what you do, but since most people don’t easily visit a website, you can integrate a QR code, which is a scannable code into your business card designs, which allows recipients of your business cards to quickly access your website and view more information about your business.
Don’t Use Borders & Ensure Readable Text
When designing your business card, you should avoid the use of borders in your designs, as they will always give issues during the printing process.
It is also important to ensure that any text on the card is readable. As in most cases, the text on the business card designs may look large when you are designing it on your computer screen but when printed, they come out small, as business cards are notoriously small, so make sure the font sizes are large enough when designing.
