The Most Common Mistakes When Printing Business Cards (2)

We’re going to continue with our discussion of some of the things that you should avoid doing when printing your business cards. These tips are going to help you to ensure that you create and print a very effective business card that can serve your business well. Here they are…

  • You might print a business card that’s too small. You don’t want to make it too hard for people to see the information that you placed on your card. Try to use a type size of no smaller than 7 – 8 points.
  • You might create a cluttered card and that’s definitely not going to be appealing to your customers. Keeping your business card simple, we’ll-spaced and easy to understand is the best option for you. It’s a much more professional look.
  • You might inappropriately or poorly use color on your business card. You might just be surprised at how much of an impact color can have on your business card’s design. Some vivid color on your card can do a great deal to attract the eye of your audience. Another tip is, to use contrasting colors on your card as well, like black print on a white/light background, vice versa.
  • You might fail to provide your email address, social media address or website on your business card and that’s another costly mistake. People look forward to getting in contact with you and viewing your content online and if you don’t direct them to the places that they can do that, then you’re going to lose business.
