When designing your business card, it is important to make sure that it is professional and memorable. It should include your logo, contact information, and other relevant information. However, there are some common mistakes that you should avoid when designing your business card. These include using an odd-sized card, using a small font size, using too much color, using large or small fonts, not including a logo, not including contact information, not including a company description, not including safety lines, not including a contact name, using a low-quality image, not allowing the logo to breathe, and not considering international guidelines.
When creating your business card, make sure that it is the standard size of 3.5 by 2 inches. Use a font size of 7-8 points for ease of reading. Choose a color that does not distract from your logo or company information. Use a dark shade such as black, navy blue, or dark gray for the text.
Use a font size between 10 and 14 points for legibility and visibility. Make sure your logo is relevant to what your company does and use a high-quality image at 300 dpi for sharp edges when printed. Allow the logo to breathe by leaving enough space around it. Consider international guidelines when exchanging business cards in an international context. Using a thicker and higher-quality cardstock may cost more but it is worth the investment.
A well-designed business card can serve as a powerful branding tool and help people remember who you are and what you have to offer. Avoid making mundane and unimpressive business cards that will soon be forgotten.
