5 tips for creating a business card to remember

If you run a business no matter how big or small or maybe you're the editor of a blog and wondering how to create the perfect business card for networking events - this is the post for you. In an increasingly digital world, business cards still matter. They provide a personal touch and can speak volumes about your business, your ethos and your brand.

I have been using business cards for the past 4-5 years now and have picked up some simple hints and tips that I would love to share with you today.

1- Focus on the 5 most important details first

Make sure your business card contains these 5 vital pieces of information:-
  • Your name, job position and company
  • Website URL
  • Phone number
  • Email address
  • Company logo

2- Stand out from the crowd

Try and find a way to make your business card stand out from the crowd and really make an impact. Perhaps this could be a folded or square business card using Fastprint for Business cards or a brightly coloured card that will really grab attention. Make sure you don't use clip art or stock photos, instead invest in professional headshots and a professionally designed company logo that will ensure you look the part.

3- Make the most of your space

Double sided business cards always work out to be better value for money - you can use the extra space to include social media icons, your business tagline or more branding. 

4 - Spell check, Spell check, Spell check

I can count on one hand the amount of times a friend or colleague has realised a spelling mistake or error on their business card when it's too late and they have 500 of the things! Avoid costly errors by always proof reading after a good night's sleep and ask a partner or friend to check too before authorising printing to go ahead.

5- Add the personal touch

Handwrite your personal mobile/direct line onto your card before you hand it to someone and let them know this is your direct line - this adds the personal touch which means it is less likely that your card will be thrown away or forgotten about.

I would love to hear if you have any business card tips you could share too.
