So if you have a business you have probably asked yourself how to make a business card. Don't panic, we're here to help (we've been doing it a while). So, where do you start? Well, read on and we will show you a step by step guide of how to make the perfect business card.
Okay, the first thing that you should probably do is decide what information you want going on there. There are four main things that are a must to a business card. Your logo, your details, your website and, your social media. However, which details should you have on them. There are two ways to go about it. You can have a personal business card dedicated to yourself or, a business card that can be used by everyone in the business. Which social media platforms do you have? For you social media we would suggest sticking to your business ones. Giving out your personal social media handles can come across as unprofessional. No one wants to see the 734 pictures of cats you have shared.
Once you have everything sorted out and you have a clear goal of what to put on it, you can start the creative process (our favourite).
The design of your business card is just as crucial as the information that goes onto it. It is your shop front to your business, so it has to look appealing. We would recommend taking advantage of both sides. A business card with the logo on its own on one side comes across as more thought out and professional, so bare that in mind. Once you have an amazing design that your happy with and that represents your business your ready for the next step!
However, this is where a lot of people start panicking because, they aren't designers. They get themselves all worked up over the design and start to think about sky rocketing costs of hiring their own Graphic Designer. You should probably stop panicking, we can help!
