Business cards are often the first form of interaction between you and prospective clients. As such, your card should pique their interest the moment you hand it over to them.
However, going overboard with the design on your business card can make it very difficult to print them. In the worst case scenario, you are left with cluttered and illegible cards that make you look unprofessional. Here are a few tips to help you avoid such a scenario:
Change the Color Scheme
Change the color scheme from RGB to CMYK. This change is necessary because the way color is printed on business card material differs from the way it is presented on your monitor. By using CMYK, the colors are just as vibrant on paper as it is on screen.
If you are passionate about your business, you know you can talk about it for hours on end. Unfortunately, you do not have that liberty when it comes to business cards due to the limited real estate. If you really have a lot of important things to say, add a QR code that redirects users to a page on your site that explains what you want to say.
Keep the Back Blank
Generally, business cards are blank on the back; have you ever wondered why? Usually, it’s because it provides recipients room to jot down extra information to help them remember who you are and why they took a business card from you.
