Gift Certificate Design Ideas
Jumpstart Your Business with These Gift Certificate Design Ideas
Two good reasons why gift certificates are a good tool for business is that they are usually bought by your customers to be given away to their friends and family who haven’t tried your product or service. This gives you income and extra mileage in terms of having your business known.
Also, gift certificates are rarely redeemed by their owners — this is profit you get to keep. Whether redeemed or not, you earn extra revenue.
Get started with these easy guidelines in making your gift certificates!
1. Define what you want to include in your gift certificate. Make sure that the look and feel of your gift certificates suit the nature of your business. Also, be aware of season holidays and/or occasions that might well affect the mood of your design. Your gift certificates should indicate your business name — add a logo if you have one. Make sure you include a promo validity date. Add a control number so you get to track your returns.
2. Make it simple. Don’t try to fit in numerous images in your design so it would be easy to look at — one mood, one feel and one look so it is easier to understand. Avoid wordiness and too much information on your gift certificates. The simpler the better!
3. Start with the end in mind. Picture how your gift certificate would look like and work your way around it. Define its size and shape; would it go with an envelope, its color theme should match the product/service it is good for.
4. Have fun! Make sure you are in a happy mood when you start designing. Creations always reflect its maker.
