Designing business cards may seem simple. With just a few inches to work with, it should be pretty quick and painless right? You may find, however, that it takes a lot of time and thought to come up with a way to get your message across, and more importantly, stand out in such a small amount of space.
You can have a card that stands out by utilizing
unique color accents or unusual texture. One outstanding business card we recently did was on a thick 32pt paper with metallic colored edges. These fun accents create the kind of memorable card that people want to hold on to.
“We can come up with something cool and unique. You want your business card to be memorable so they take a closer look at it and hang on to it, so it won’t get thrown away with other generic cards,” owner Will Oakley explained.
If unique is what you’re after, the custom options abound:
Shape is one way to stand out. A custom laser cut card goes way beyond the square or rounded corner option.
Thickness and texture play on the tactile effect of a business card and feel special in someone’s hand.
Color infusions, like a colored edge, or metallic accents are another way to make your card stand out.
