How to Design a Name Card Printing That Gets Noticed

A good Name Card Printing will convey your overall business picture — not easy, given that the card measures just 2 inches by 3.5 inches.

How in such a small amount of space can you get a message across?

You can't expect to have your Name Card Printing say the entire story about your business. What you would expect it to do is to show an impression that people would remember professionally.

The Name Card Printing's colour, wording and texture have much to do with its appeal and its ability to communicate the picture of your client.

Use common sense when you are designing your Name Card Printing.

If your company markets toys and games for children, you could try using vivid, primary colors and words written in the script for children. On the other hand, you want your Name Card Printing to reflect professionalism and authenticity if you operate a financial consultancy company, so stick to typical looks like black printing on a blue, beige or white backdrop.

Of course, skilled designers believe that businessmen do not try to create their own business card, but many cash-strapped business owners have little choice.

Look at all the Name Card Printing you get, and imitate the cards you prefer. If you are in a creative company, such as party planning or retailing, you may have more leeway but generally keep in mind the simple instructions:

-Use your logo as the basis. Make it the largest element on the card.

-Keep it simple. Do not cram too much information on the card.

-Do include the essentials -- your name, title, company name, address, phone and fax numbers, and email and website addresses.

-Make sure the typeface is easily readable.

-Stick to one or two colors.

Once you've got Name Card Printing, make the most of them:

-Always give people more than one card (so they can give it to others).

-Include your card in all correspondence.

-Carry cards with you at all times, in a card case so they're clean and neat.

Name Card Printing needn't be ordinary. If your industry makes a creative flare, then here are a few suggestions to try:

-Use 4-inch-by-7-inch cards that fold over (like a mini brochure), cards made of plastic or cards with photos on them.

While being more common than regular Name Card Printing, cards in non-traditional shapes are getting attention. Try for example a teddy bear shape for a day-care facility, or a party planner birthday cake.

-Textured paper can, as can colored paper, add to the value of a card. Stay generally with pastel colors which improve readability.

-Thermography, a process producing elevated, glossy printing, adds value to a coin. Both embossing and foil stamping are two other printing procedures that can bring visual appeal to your card.
