Business Card Samples
Starting your business was an important decision that you didn’t take lightly. Your business card shouldn’t be taken lightly either. Let’s face it your business card will be your most powerful tool. That tiny piece of paper is going to reflect you and your company and will leave a lasting impression on your potential clients and customers. You want this impression to be a good one. If it’s not, your business card will end up in the garbage.
The good news is that there are multiple websites out there that off their services in creating business cards at an affordable price. That’s easy enough. You still need to design the card yourself using their templates.
There are a variety of ways you can go. Sometimes making the decision on what to do can be a tad bit overwhelming. I mean do you go in color, horizontal of vertical and what type of font to use? Do you want a plastic, metal, letterpress, or how about a glossy business card? These are important decisions to make.
Now that it’s time to get creative there are a few things to keep in mind. Who are your clients? Are they a younger crowd or older? Are your cards for new potential clients or existing? How are you going to get them into your business? These are bits of information you are going to have to keep in mind.
Some people like to go the simple route when designing their business cards. This is OK to do, but it’s best to keep it in color. If you do a simple look in black and white, it may be a bit boring. Boring business cards usually end up in the garbage and all your hard work will go down the drain.
Sometimes the smallest changes can make a huge different. Take the photo below as an example. The fonts and colors chosen are exactly the same in both. The only difference is the background and font color choices and where the information is placed. The bottom choice is most likely the better choice because the information is easier to read. You want people to be able to read the information on your business card. Just like with a photo if you use one. You want people to be able to distinguish what image they’re looking at.
