You need a Business Card!  Make it Great!

You need a Business Card! Make it Great!

  1. Sleek and Minimalistic Design: Keep the design clean and uncluttered, using white space effectively to highlight important details.
  2. High-Quality Materials: Choose premium paper or non-traditional materials like metal or plastic. Textured finishes or embossing can also suggest attention to detail.
  3. Distinctive Typography: Use modern, readable fonts. Mix different font weights to emphasize hierarchy in the text, like the company name and role.
  4. Color Scheme: Stick to a limited and sophisticated color palette that aligns with your brand. A strategic use of accent colors can help specific elements stand out.
  5. Subtle Technology Integration: Consider including a QR code that links to a portfolio or website. An NFC chip can also allow the card to be scanned and automatically load contact information onto a phone.
  6. Visual Branding Elements: Incorporate a logo or emblem that reflects the brand’s identity and craft. A well-designed emblem can convey skill and professionalism.
  7. Finishing Techniques: Add subtle enhancements like spot UV coating, foil stamping, or die-cut shapes to accentuate particular areas.
  8. Functional Layout: Make sure all important information (name, role, contact details, etc.) is laid out logically and easy to read.
  9. Unique Shape or Size: Go beyond the traditional rectangular shape if appropriate. Rounded corners, square shapes, or non-traditional orientations can make the card memorable.
  10. Personalized Details: Include a tagline or personal motto that reinforces your skill set and business philosophy.

By putting a QR code on your paper card, you bridge the gap, creating a gateway from analog to digital.

From one digital medium to another, a QR code or URL can also be sent via online chat, email, or social media. This is a useful tactic for teleconferences and online networking events. In the future, it’s likely that richer contact exchange functions will be native or add-ons for popular platforms like Zoom and Skype.

Using digital business cards has benefits both for you the user, and for greater society.

  • Paperless, eco-friendly – Save trees while you save yourself and/or your company the cost of printing cards.
  • No contact/contactless – Don’t pass germs or viruses.
  • Infinite supply – Save money.
  • The coolness factor – In time, this will subside, but for now, it’s still rather cool to scan a QR code and get someone’s full, rich data. And on that note…
  • Full, rich data – Like a business card, and unlike a social account, you get a range of valuable data fields that you can use for…
  • Integration with other systems –
  • Quicker follow-up and conversion – With the contact data already digitized, it’s ready to merge with a mailing list, start on a nurturing campaign, or do a quick callback.
  • Data security – Paper business cards lying around are a data breach waiting to happen. In the age of GDPR, you need to keep customer data under lock and key. In digital form, you can immediately encrypt and secure it.

Card Design Info: A standard business card size is 3.5″ x 2″. However, if there is full color to the edge, or imagry to the edge, then the card has to be sized larger to account for the bleed. The correct template size with full bleed would be 3.75″ x 2.13″. There is also a safe margin that you want to keep your text within to prevent it being cut off or too close to the edge. Font size should be no smaller than 7pt in size. Anything smaller will be hard to read when printed.
When Designing on Canva: There are specific things you need to do when downloading your design from Canva. The first thing is make sure to check the box that says “Show Crop Marks and Bleed”. This is the most important. The second is to ALWAYS select “PDF Print” as the file type to download. If you have the PRO version of Canva, you will want to select CMYK as the color type. CMYK is what all printers use and RBG is for digital/computer screens only. RGB files will still work, but certain colors may look different printed vs. on screen.
