Tips for Creating a Great Business Card for Your Company
Some business cards look great while others definitely give an amateur appearance. Some business cards give the impression of a well established business while others exude a different feel altogether. What is it that makes some business cards give off a different impression? There are several things that can affect the overall impression of your business card when you present it to a prospective customer, client or in some cases, employer. By focusing on 4 major areas, you can make your business card more effective and professional in its impression.
The first thing to keep in mind when designing a business card is the visual impact of your business card. The simplest contrast is black text on white card. Be creative by using colors that have contrasting relationships such as blue and orange or red and green. Typeface can also be contrasted as well. You may use a strong bold typeface for your company name contrasted with a lighter type for the rest of the text on your business card.
The Feel of Your Cards
All of the cards printed at PrintBusinessCards.com are on heavy, thick 14 point card stock. You also have your choice of uncoated, gloss, or super gloss finishes. If you or your clients occasionally write on your cards, you should choose uncoated or the gloss finish. The super gloss finish generally makes it too difficult to write on a card.
The heavy card stock creates a feeling of permanence and quality for your company. Remember those times when you've been handed a card on thin stock? Generally, your first reaction is "cheap card". Well, this won't be the case when someone takes one of your cards if they're printed through PrintBusinessCards.com. Our thick card stock exudes quality and reinforces the professional appearance you desire for everything related to your business.
Alignment for Text, Logos, and Pictures
Our eyes find aligned text and objects appealing. Make sure that the text on your business card is aligned left or right or centered. As long as it is consistent over your business card it will project a neat and professional look. We also have many card layouts that allow you to easily upload a picture of yourself, your company, or whatever you may wish to have displayed on your card. Do you have a company logo? Easily add it to your card using our upload feature.
The Back of Your Business Card
Many people overlook the importance of the space on the back of their business card. While leaving some open space can be valuable at times for short notes or other information that needs to be written down, the back of your card is valuable advertising space. Use it to give more details about your qualifications, your products or services, or print a coupon, discount, or other incentive on there for your prospective customers.
