Not only do customized cards promote your business, but they also look and feel way better than a typical card! An average printed card measures 3.5x 2 inches, using 14 pt. card stock, 4 colors on one side, 1 color on the other) and lists basic contact information about your company.

However, a customized business card is limitless in creativity and can actually benefit your branding in two ways. First, your card promotes your product, and second, the uniqueness infers your overall success. Your custom design also tells the reader what you might be promoting, while gaining recognition and credibility for your business.

  • Design – It can be difficult to create a unique design. However, your design is only one piece to your custom card. Your potential customers need to know about your business! You must include exactly who you are, where your business is located and some form of contact information – a phone number and a business email are a must, along with social media links!
  • Specs – You should consider thinking of the specs for your business card as well. Does your design incorporate one or two sides? What are the text elements being used? How long would you like the prospect to keep your card? This may actually determine the thickness or your card.
  • Paper – Are you interested in your card being folded or flat? Glossy or uncoated? These are just a few specs that should be considered before contacting a graphic designer.
