How To Create Unique Business Cards


People use business cards to introduce, communicate, and create favorable first impressions. They remain to be the most and effective marketing materials for this purpose. Business cards reflect you, your brand and your company. Without them, high profile businesses and entrepreneurs will not likely take you seriously. Every businessman knows that business cards are responsible for creating that first important impression. Having one for your business is not an option, it is a necessity. They contain key information like brand name, logo and your business' contact details.


When creating a business card keep in mind the nature of your business. They must complement your brand personality. A unique business card will help you stand out and create a good memorable impression for your company.


Below are some tips in creating a unique business card.


1. Change the shape: The most common and standard business cards are in rectangular or square shapes. A creative way of printing business cards is using die-cuts. Die-cuts allow you to create business cards in various shapes of your choice. You can have them in leaf shape (ideal for spas or organic restaurants), ovals, circle, rounded corners and more. Die-cuts can turn dull cards into something trendy and fresh.

4.  Use photos: Nowadays, many businesses and entrepreneurs add photos in their cards. It could be an image of themselves, company building or products. By incorporating photos, recipients can easily associate and remember your face or associate them with your product. Make sure that you don't overcrowd your design with images - your contact details must still stand out.
