Designing Business Cards

business card designBusiness Cards serve many purposes, but their primary purpose is to tell what you do and give the recipient a way to contact you.

At the very least, a name and contact method (address or phone number) should go into a business card design. As for where to put this information, there are hundreds of possible arrangements. However, there are only a few commonly accepted guidelines for where to place the most essential information. When in doubt or when there is little time to experiment, follow these guidelines for creating a basic, serviceable, and effective business card.
Minimum Information for a Business Card
Other information is optional, but as a minimum, the Business Card design should usually contain:

    *     Individual's Name and/or Business Name
    *     Individual's title or some other descriptive text to indicate their position, if it is not obvious from the business name.
    *     A way (preferably multiple ways) to contact the person —  phone, fax, email, web page, mailing address, street address, etc.

A complete listing of services or products on the business card is not necessary, but definitely an option.
