Recently, we talked about why business cards are still important and relevant in today’s digitally-driven world. In case you missed the memo, we put together a quick recap for you.
A business card is undeniably the most professional form of leaving your information behind, and has the ability to speak volumes about you and your business if executed well and correctly. Some of the tips we offered were as follows:
Less is more.
Minimalism is in. The only information that belongs on a business card is this: your name, job title, email address, phone number, website, and social handles (we recommend using your top 2 most used accounts). A cluttered card is too much for the eye to handle, a.k.a the recipient will forget all about your existence.
Your logo and brand should be consistent across all of your digital and print collateral – including your business card. The more cohesive and recognizable you are, the better.
First impressions matter.
Don’t skimp on design or quality. It’s important to consider paper thickness, card styles & shapes, and typography when creating your business card. If you’re looking to grow your business or enhance your career, you should be presenting yourself at your very best. Think of it as an interview: would you wear a beat up jacket and sneakers if you were serious about the job? Not a chance.
We truly stand by the power of a quality business card. In light of this, we’ve put together a few InDesign templates that you can download for free to use! Give the tips above one more thorough read, download the templates below, and get to building your brand and business.
