amazing business card designs

Gone are the days when you had to visit a print shop to get professional-looking business cards. Today, there are a variety of online tools and resources that make it easy for anyone to design and order high-quality business cards.

Whether you're a small business owner, corporate employee, or just looking to upgrade your personal brand, this article will provide you with the information you need to create amazing business cards online.

Here are some useful tips for designing your own business cards.

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 right. Play around with the orientation and location, too – you might be surprised at the difference it can make.

If you want to have a professional logo, you can hire a graphic designer who can create a one-of-a-kind logo design for you.

Add Visual Elements

Most online business card companies offer a basic design tool, 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”.

If you already have a design in mind but don't know how to implement it, you can always talk to your printer and have them create the design from scratch. Here at DesignsNprint, we can do that for you.

Choose a Unique Shape

The day when a business card had to be a boring rectangle is 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 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 a fantastic 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.
