How to Create Amazing Business Cards Online

amazing business card designs

Business cards – they’re “old school” but incredibly important for the success of any business or entrepreneur. While the Internet might be hot right now, there’s no contesting the fact that you absolutely have to have business cards for those face-to-face interactions. There’s good news, though. The Internet has made it simpler than ever to make your own high-quality business cards. How do you ensure that you’re doing it the right way? Here are a few simple tips to help.

Create Your Art Beforehand

Your business card needs to be more than just plain text. It needs visual appeal. While you can add elements to your card through an online design tool (which we’ll cover shortly), you need to make sure that your logo is displayed prominently. Your logo is perhaps your most invaluable marketing tool, and it needs to be front and center here. Create your logo beforehand, and make sure it’s in a file format that the printing company will accept. Upload it and use the provided sizing and layout tools to get it just right. Play around with the orientation and location, too – you might be surprised at the difference it can make.

Add Visual Elements

Most online business card companies offer some sort of basic designer, which should include the ability to add a limited number of visual elements to your business card. This can include things like borders, shading and stylistic flourishes. Run through the provided library to see what’s available, and then add a few to the card to see how things look. The right combination of logo and visual elements can really make your business card “pop”.

Choose a Unique Shape

The day when a business card had to be a boring rectangle are long gone. The right company can offer you the ability to print business cards in a wide range of unique shapes to help them stand out from the crowd. Look for corner die-cut, leaf, circle and rounded shapes – these will really give your business card a unique design while keeping it the right size for everyday use.

Don’t Go Overboard

It can be easy to get carried away. You want your card to look its best, but don’t forget the most important part here. Your business card must do a job, and it must do it well. It must attract the eye, while providing important information to your customers and potential customers. You need your business name, logo and contact information to be clearly visible. If your customer can’t see it, then the card is useless. If you have so many graphics and embellishments that your information is covered up or hard to see, then your card will fail.

With these simple tips, you should be able to create an amazing business card that stands out from others while still grabbing the eye and imparting the information you need your customers to have. A well-designed business card can be one of the most important tools your company has.
