Business card design tips Kempton Park

Nothing screams unprofessionalism like a badly designed business card. Ensure that your graphic design looks great.

Graphic design is not everyone’s cup of tea, but learning more about the basics of designing standard print materials (such as business cards) will make all the difference.

Five Business card design tips

  • Images: Use high resolution images for your business cards to ensure that the end product has crisp and clear pictures. When scaling images, make sure that the ratios stay the same and be careful when cropping pictures.
  • Colours: Use colour in a way that grabs attention but is still tasteful. Make sure that the combination of colours, textures and images you use gel together.
  • Graphics: The design on your business card should not just be pretty to look at; it should complement your business. If you insist on designing your own business card and you’re not very familiar with graphic design, ask a professional for help.
  • Information: Don’t overload the card with information. Use only relevant info such as your name, title, business name, email, contact numbers and a micro summary of what you provide.
  • Quality: Business cards should be printed on good quality paper but paper quality can only bring you so far. Make use of a respected printing company and ask them about the types of printing services they provide.

Create the type of business card that will get you noticed and will open up a lot of doors for you.
