Even in today’s digital age, business cards are essential accessories for business owners and other professional individuals. According to the website ‘Envato’, business cards give you the “opportunity to connect with a new prospect on a personal level.”
As a result, they are completely irreplaceable. That’s why your business card needs to have a top-notch design. The most effective business card designs are the most memorable, and the most memorable designs are the cleanest and simplest ones. However, your business card also needs to contain a lot of information, including your name, the name of your business, your website, your logo and your contact details. As such, creating an uncluttered, simple business card design can be tricky. That’s why we’ve come up with a few simple tips to help you.
1. Use both sides of the card
Remember, there’s no need to cram all of your information and graphics onto just one side of your business card. Experiment with distributing the information across both faces of the card to avoid creating visual clutter. For example, you might like to put your business’s name, logo and tag-line on one side of the card and your name, website and contact details on the other.
2. Don’t include superfluous information
While your business card should contain plenty of useful information, there’s no need to put every single fact about your business or yourself onto your card. Generally, there’s no need to include a description or explanation of what your business does. If you’ve met someone and given them a business card, they probably already have a good idea what services your business offers. What’s more, the tag-line and logo should help remind them. In most cases, you don’t need to give your business’s address either, as that information can be looked up online. Think carefully about what information to put on your card and don’t add anything that seems irrelevant or superfluous.
3. Choose a font style that’s legible at any size
By choosing a font that’s legible at smaller sizes, you can minimise the amount of space that you have to devote to text on your business card. This is very useful for de-cluttering your design.
