Business Card Design
Your physical presence is the very first impression you give to the world. Your business card comes next. A good business card must be powerful enough to make a strong first impression, conveying specifically three things:
1. Who you are
2. What you offer
3. How to reach you
In addition to providing contact information to your audience, your business card will tell a lot more. It will give an impression about your position in the market. Is your company conservative? Is it modern? Is it unique? What is your competitive advantage; exclusivity, or low pricing? All of these factors are key to communicate effectively who you are.
The standard dimensions of a printed business card are 3.5 x 2 inches. That’s the finished card size. Many printed designs include bleed. The “bleed area” is an extra 1/8 inch of space for design elements or backgrounds that extend beyond the finished edges of your card.
