Below are some ideas to get you started on creating your business card.

  • When creating your card make sure you have the minimum amount of information on your card. Those pieces of information include: Individual name and/or Business Name, Title or job description and contact information (whether it be phone, fax, email, website, mailing address, etc, or all of them).
  • Try and stay with a symmetrical layout so the card is easy to read.
  • The most common format for a business card is the horizontal position.
  • Try and keep your business card specific to your style of business. If you are a graphic artist you may have a flashy, creative business card, whereas if you are an accountant you may have a more subdued business card.
  • Don't create a plain black and white card, add a bit of color but not too much. If you don't have any graphics try using two colors. If you are using an image/photograph as the background in your business card make sure that you can easily identify your information.
  • Think about using your image/photograph on 1/3 or 1/2 of your business card to make it easier to read.
  • Make sure your font size is readable.
  • The key point is to tailor your business card to your type of business and style. This way it will be remembered.
