Keep the information short and concise. Oftentimes, when you insert too much information to the point that most of the data are irrelevant to your business already, you will end up with a useless and unattractive business card.

The business card designs should be customized according to your type of business. The color selection should go together with the kind of business you are engaged in. Everyone should get the idea immediately what your business is all about. Say for example, if you are into catering or into restaurants, your business cards should represent your business.

One of the most important things that must not be taken for granted is the font type and the font size. Readability is very important and creating a business card with readable information at a normal seeing distance will attract more customers or at least make the client contact you as opposed to having well designed business card that contains out of this world fonts! If your business card is not readable even to a grade school student, then it will really break your business goals.

When you are ready to implement all the ideas that you have gathered, bear in mind that a business card must have a clear name of your business- and again it should be legible. Next, you can decide to insert some short but crisp description about your business. Too much information printed on the business card will make your card look ugly and if it is an eye sore, do not expect to even have at least one person to contact you.

The goal of giving out business cards is to arouse interest from the public but leaving an air of mystery that makes them want to know more thereby contacting you. It is sneaky in a clever way. Some attractive business cards contain a picture. It is alright to paste your photo on the card just make sure that it pairs well with your overall marketing theme and not overpower the essential information on the card.

Once you have everything on the business card, play with the details until you are satisfied with its look. If it is unappealing to you, then it is ugly to everyone else.
