How to Make the Perfect Business Card for Your Lichfield Business

14th March 2017

When you think of business cards, many of us immediately think of the iconic American Psycho scene where Patrick Bateman compares his business card with his fellow colleagues, analysing the minute indistinguishable differences between one another’s cards.

Perfecting the business card for your Lichfield business doesn’t have to be as difficult or as specific as that example, but it is important to capture the essence of your overall business on card that only measures 2 inches by 3.5 inches.

Your business card is your attempt to make someone remember you, so make sure you visit our business card page to see how we can help. Colour, wording and typeface can convey so much about a business, even with such little content, so it’s important to be professional yet memorable.

If you manufacture children’s toys you should consider using bright colours and a unique font. However, if you work as an accountant, you’ll want something sleek and minimal, using black font on a white background.

Here are a few tips to remember when making yours:

  • Include your logo and make it noticeable, centering it on the card
  • Make it readable and keep it simple
  • Include only the basic information such as title, name, business name, address, phone, email and website
  • Use a professional and readable font

Once you’ve created the perfect business card for your Lichfield business, it’s important that you use it correctly:

  • Take them with you to every meeting
  • Store them in a metal card case, it keeps them clean and it looks professional
  • Always hand more than one out, this will encourage people to share them

Not every business card has to stick to a certain format; if you run a creative business then use your imagination. For example, if you own a veterinary or pet store then turn your business card into the shape of a dog’s bone – it’s a great way to add an element of fun into your design.
