A Business Card is a piece of paper that specifies the contact details of a person or the company they represent. It is an effective marketing tool that lets business people build rapport with prospective clients and other organizations - inform them about your work and tell them how to reach you if they are interested in a collaboration or employing you to do a job.

The standard Business Card size is 3.5x2 inches - they are sufficiently small to fit in the pocket of a jacket or a wallet without inconveniencing the person receiving the card. Besides, most cards whether it is a credit card or a voucher are of the same size which allows the individual to carry or keep them all together. If you wish to pick a custom size for your Business Card, try to stay within the dimensions of a traditional card so that the recipient is still able to fit the card in the cardholder of their choice.
It is up to a business owner or certified professional to figure out what details about their work matter most to share with other people right away and establish a connection right away. However, most modern Business Cards indicate the name of the company or the name of the person who represents the business, the job title of the individual identified on the card (if necessary), and the contact information (a telephone number, address, social media handles).
When it comes to the decorative aspect, you may go for a simple black-and-white design without additional pictures, limit yourself to a small image of a symbol or emblem representing your company, or select a pattern that will adorn the previously blank back side of the Business Card. The use of barcodes has become rather popular in recent years - it may be the only unusual component of your card which lets smartphone users go to your website within seconds.
You have an opportunity to minimize your expenses if you personalize your Business Cards without ordering them from a print shop. Here are some Business Card ideas you can utilize:
Select the right paper type for your Business Cards. Many professionals lately opted for plastic since it is a more durable material which is harder to damage but paper remains the most widespread choice. Cardstock or gloss cover paper will do - the regular paper you use for writing will be too thin. Think about the texture of the paper as well to elevate the look of the card.
Map out the visual elements of the card with a pen and paper or computer software. This step depends on your personal preferences - you may wish to feature your logo as the prominent element of the card, focus on different ways the customers and business partners can contact you, or insert illustrations and drawings required to market your business.
Before you make the final version of the Business Card, try out some drafts and see whether the information is readable and concise. You can print a bunch of cards on your home printing device and cut the paper sheet into identical rectangles making dozens of Business Cards at once.
