3. Add your logo and other graphics
Now we begin to map the graphic elements of your Print Name Card Johor Bahru design, mainly the logo. Your logo should be at the center of your Print Name Card Johor Bahru, but often other flourishes and secondary graphics can also be useful.
Please remember that you got two sides open. One strategy is to exclusively dedicate one side of the Print Name Card Johor Bahru to the logo, while the other side shows the person's contact information. Even so, having the logo on both sides is also nice, so sometimes you'll see a simpler, out-of-the-way logo on the side with contact details
This is just one strategy of many, though, so feel free to experiment with logo placement until you find one for your tastes.
While minimalism is a popular choice for Print Name Card Johor Bahru, you can fill it up with additional graphics if that empty space doesn't suit you. For an industry such as children's apparel, Londees tries to take her adorable theme as far as it goes: they build on their sheep mascot by putting sheep doodles around, and using a fading backdrop to prevent ambiguity (also notice the use of soft blue, a playful and kid-friendly color). Even if your logo is simple or text only, any related imagery serves the same ends.
Extra graphics fit well to show off your brand recognition. Without saying it directly, you can express the personality of your or your brand through visuals, like colours. For example, if you want to look relaxed or friendly, the trick will be to have a cute animation and some bright colours.
Another increasingly common trend is to instill excitement and interest by leaving a little mystery behind. Brands typically place a wordless visual on one side with a URL, and then all the required interpretations (including brand name and employee name) on the other.
4. Add necessary text
It is up to you on what your Print Name Card Johor Bahru really says. Work-from - home self employed people may not need a mailing address, while they are required by professions that discuss face-to - face. Or maybe it's a reasonable decision, like attracting attention to your outstanding following on social media. The argument is, the different people on their Print Name Card Johor Bahru benefit from different text. Then the next step is to decide what you want to put on your Print Name Card Johor Bahru. Below is a list of common choices, so you can choose which options to include and exclude.
Name – A given. Every card needs a name.
Company name – Another given, except for personal brands, in which case your personal name is your company name.
Job title – For traditional cards, include your job title. This also helps remind the holder of who you are, what you do, and even how you met.
Phone number – Even if a phone is not your preferred method of communication, it is to some people.
Email – A Print Name Card Johor Bahru staple; email is the new norm for non-urgent business communications, partially because it allows sending documents as attachments.
Website URL – Including your site URL is a non-aggressive invitation for visits.
Social media – If social media is relevant to your field, or you just want to show a bit of your personality, include social media links.
Address – Necessary for drawing customers into your office or store location.
QR code – While not as popular as years past, a QR code is still a viable shortcut to transferring whatever data you desire.
Slogan – Completely optional, a slogan helps with brand identity and adds a little personality.

5. Choose your typography
You can choose how it looks, once you know what you want to say. Even as typography is always essential, it is particularly relevant for Print Name Card Johor Bahru, as you need to make text fully legible and have only a small space to work with. There are three main categories in typography:
Size. You want all of your text to be at least 8 pts to preserve readability. However, you want your most essential aspect to stand out (like your name) so feel free to change the text sizes. Also consider empty space — you do not want your card cluttered, so leave your text small enough that there is plenty of breathing space around every component.
Font. We have already spoken extensively about fonts and how they affect your brand image, so feel free to check out the 5 font forms and how to use them for a more detailed treatment. Do not forget to choose a font which represents the character for which you are going. A clean and modern Sans-serif, an elegant and individualistic script or a traditional and timeless serif font? Below are some examples of what different font styles bring to the table.
Color. This is where a pre-existing color scheme for the company works great. Staying on-brand, select text colors that go well with your card's background color which should be a brand color as well. Similar colors can look good together but can be difficult to interpret, so play with legibility comparisons. The golden rule for typography is to emphasize readability above all else. It doesn’t matter how artistic your font is if no one can read what it says.
6. Consider special finishes
Now that you approach the final stretch, it's time to start looking at printers — especially as to what they can deliver. Some printers offer special ends which make a lasting impression can go a long way. See if any of these "special effects" can support your strategy for designing a Print Name Card Johor Bahru.
Embossing. This method provided three-dimensional reliefs, making some areas "pop out." You can use it to attract attention to different facets of your card, even terms, like spot UV coating.
Letterpressing. Instead of lifting the paper, letterpress printing forces down the paper as it inks. The effect is something like an engraving, usually to attract more attention with a special ink. Particularly useful for letters, which offer a heightened gravitas to your speech.
Foil stamping. If you want something like tin foil that is shiny and reflective, you can adapt foil stamping to images, or even only parts of images. This also works to accentuate text, if you have selected a sufficiently bold typeface.
Spot UV coating. Many cards have a glossy varnish to produce a smooth texture and shine. Spot UV coating is the same but added only to some areas. That means you can only add a gloss to your logo, different graphics or even a word or sentence. Use it when you want to accentuate some areas over others, but be aware of how it affects the highly organized when only one portion is brilliant.
