Your company name, your name, job title, and company logo should be clearly displayed. Think carefully about which contact details to include. You need to have a balance between providing enough points of contact, without making your card look cluttered. Your email address, phone number, and website are a must. Don´t think it twice, if you’re struggling for space, remove the business´ physical address from your design.
Make it Readable
This is a pretty vital, and yet sometimes overlooked, element in business card design. You wouldn’t want your clients to have to strain their eyes to read your email or website address. Make sure card´s your text is at least 8 pt, in a readable font and bold color.
Colorful or Plain?
When used correctly, bright colors can make a business card stand out, and look distinctive. This tactic is often used by design and creative businesses, with the aim of appearing exciting, fresh, and authentic. However, don’t underestimate the power of simplicity. A plain black & white design can be as memorable and striking as a colorful card and can often be seen as more stylish too.
