Business Card Design Tips For Designers

Business cardsSome people may not realize it, but there are different types of business cards that are used for different kinds of purposes. A business card typically includes the giver’s name, company or business affiliation (usually with a logo ) and contact information such as street addresses , telephone number (s), fax number, e-mail addresses and website Before the advent of electronic communication business cards might also include telex details.

This format allows for plenty of creative design ideas and making your business cards into useful giveaways that people might want to keep longer – think about printing a reference guide relevant to your business in the middle: perhaps a weights and measures conversion guide; keyboard shortcuts list; a calendar; a planting guide; a colour chart, anything that your contacts might like to prop up on a desk or kitchen counter as a long-term reference.

Some business-card worthy fonts that we like are Helvetica (one of the most popular fonts in the world for a reason), Riesling (an elegant font that adds a European touch to any design), Gibson (clean and easy-to-read), Campton (geometric and contemporary), and Code (an elegant all-uppercase font).

No matter how your cards are going to be used, even if your cards are going to be just used for an initial introduction and a handshake, then I suggest you still use cards in full color most of the time, because you never know whose hands your card is going to end up in and you always want to make a great impression with your cards.
