The importance of business card design

Imagine you walk in to a shop and the shopkeeper is wearing joggers and a hoody, you’ll instantly judge their company and presume it provides an unprofessional service. The way you present yourself defines first impressions from customers and onlookers. This is also the same with business cards, if you hand over a pre- made card that a thousand other people are using; you are not going to stand out.

Your business card should stand out, feel good and be something that people will remember; after all it is your whole company image and your chance to make a first lasting impression. Hand over a scrappy, poor designed card and people will think you offer a poor service.

Below is an example of a well-designed business card and a pre made one using a template, both advertise the same company.

Business card design

 

Notice how the pre made template (left) is frankly boring and simply lists the companies’ details, but it has no flair and no company image. On the other hand the bespoke designed card (right) has flair it has aspects of the companies image its more personal to the company. Your company image is something that people will remember and will instantly recognise you for, so it makes sense to keep this company image flowing throughout all of your branding from small things like business cards all the way through to your letterheads and website.

The feel of a business card

The feel of the paper your card is printed on also plays a role. If your card feels cheap and poorly made, it reflects on your company’s image. We recommend using card that feels smooth to touch with a nice paper weight.

How can we help you?

We can help bring your company image up to date and design a fully bespoke business card that no one else has, insuring you stand out from the rest of the boring corporate cards that are widely available. So stop using templates and have something that really reflects your company’s image. A unique design is key to making you stand out from the rest.

I've known Daniel for around 20 years and during that time it has been a joy watching his talent grow into his profession. I recently commissioned Daniel to design a logo for my company and was pleased with the design and quality of the logo and constant updates and requests for feedback throughout his creative process. I will definitely look to Daniel for my future design requirements.

AMAZING! Dan is so talented and very patient, He really went above and beyond for me and I'm so incredibly happy with my website. I've already recommended him to another photographer friend of mine!

I commissioned Daniel to design my business logo and truly have to say it was a great experience! Daniel was really attentive and came up with numerous designs and amendments until I was happy and I love my logo! I had previously paid for the services of a different web designer in Coventry and was so disappointed with the service, attitude and designs that I walked away! Following my logo I chose Creative Script to design my website. Yet again, Daniel did not disappoint me. We were in regular contact throughout the construction of Valmya and I was able to express my own ideas and any adaptations I wanted to my site. I now have a sophisticated, easy to use branded website. I feel confident in knowing that if I need follow on assistance regardless of my website being complete, I can still email Creative Script and I will get a response quickly! Thank you Daniel!
