Has it ever happened to you to get a business card that takes your breath? What about the one that you forget about next minute?
In this post, I will share some information about the business card – what is the best size, what should be on your business card and it should look.
1 | Size
First, about the size of the business card. The size of the business card depends on your wishes, your business and how you want the client to feel. The standard size of a business card is in the size of a bank card. This size is very useful because the customer can always have it in the wallet – at hand. This size is recommended for anyone who wants to have a standard business card, or/and their convenience would benefit your customers.
If you want to attract attention and stand out with a business card, you can choose different sizes and formats of your business cards – with square, mini business card… There are no limits.
2 | Informations
When you select the size that best suits you and your business, you need information to put on your new card. On your business card should be all the necessary information:
- Logo (if you have one)
- First name and last name
- Job Title – what is your business about, what you do (eg. photographer). If someone does not remember who you are by name, “photographer” can help a lot.
- Phone Number
Those are basic information that any business cards should have. Any additional ones may be:
- Adress – this is especially useful for everyone working on location (eg hairdresser, massage salon …)
- Social Media Profiles (eg Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook …) only icons are not enough on business card, add full profile name / URL (eg @majaojstersek)
Make sure that the business card is not too busy and content too much information.
3 | Design
Design of the business card is a very important one. It can attract a lot of attention or not. The card should always be transparent, beautiful and eye-catching, and in line with your brand identity. It can be very creative designed business cards or have a more classic design. Whatever you choose, it should be in line with your brand identity so everything works as a whole.
No matter how beautiful the business card design is, it is also important to print it on quality paper and with great ink. With poor print (for example, poor paper quality, poor print), the business card will look cheap (not something you would like to share about you). You can add even golden print, glossy patterns…
