If your company is all business, your cards should be too; stick to classic designs with minimalist looks and elegant fonts and colors. If your brand is more creative, artistic or playful, you’ve got liberty to use bold images, arresting colors, unusual shapes or humor to get your message across.
And how do your current business card designs look, is their design still current, or are they starting to look dated? Would you feel excited and proud handing them to a new lead? You want your cards to come across as vibrant, modern, and fresh. They need to represent your brand and business, carry the personality and message of your company, and encourage prospects to connect with you.
Do not forget that the back of your business card is prime real estate to make use of. Add a business card background design that’s meaningful to your brand or business. Showcase images of your work. Or give a special offer, promote a high value giveaway, or direct prospects to an engaging landing page.
Turn your brand values into a business card design. Do this by thinking about the customer you’re trying to impress, and deciding what would tell the story of your business for that customer. Your images (if you use any), colors and textures should all be consistent with your existing marketing materials, and all of those should be right in line with the brand values that distinguish your business from everyone else.
