What Are The Top 10 tips We Suggest?
- Use a tagline or sum up what products or services you offer consumers.
- Do you have core words that describe your value? Consider using those on the card.
- Have a business that lends itself to an icon shape? For example if you own a record store, your cards might be round! If you train dogs, your card might have a bite taken out of the corner with a tagline that says, our dogs don't bite!
- Avoid using free card templates; business cards should reflect your business not be a stock design.
- Want to include a photo? Make sure it's a current image of you.
- Besides avoiding stock card backgrounds, don't use clip art- a "clean card lay out" is better than inserting clip art image.
- Analogues colors, those colors side by side on the color wheel, create a pleasing appearance.
- Have a business with tips to offer? Consider adding conversion charts, food purchasing tips for healthy living, or ways to reduce your footprint if you are in an Eco based business.
- QR Codes were the "rage" a few years back- Use them if you have a video about your business on your website; scan and go to that site from your card.
- Avoid using too many fonts on your card or crowding the space with too much content; if the consumer has to hunt for your information, they won't use your card!
