Coming up with the right design and images to fit on a compact piece of paper and represent you and your company can be tough. You want to leave your new acquaintance impressed and apt to remember you. Here are some tips to creating your perfect business card to wow your competition, colleagues and consumers.

1. Break out of the boundaries. Don’t forget that your images don’t have to fit perfectly within the borders of your card. Sometimes it is even more visually intriguing to overlap or cut off the text or images on your card. Just be careful to keep everything legible.

2. Think about using different mediums. Focus on what would best represent your company the best. For example if you represent a steel company use a thin metal, if you are involved in environmental issues use recycled paper or check out the options of clear plastic or paper cards if you If you are looking for a clean look. Given that this can be a bit more expensive, but if you have the budget it is a good way to stand out amongst a sea of paper cards.

3. Use back of the card to its full potential! Think of it as your canvas to paint whatever image you want your audience to come to mind when they think of your brand. Have some fun with it and make it unique to you but be sure that you keep it in form with your general design theme.

4. KISS – Keep It Simple Stupid. Sometimes less is more. Business cards are relatively small so don’t try to cram 100 images or too much information on them. It is not a web page that people go to for information but merely a way to remember and contact you by. Clutter will overwhelm the card and just leave it looking messy.

5. Consider a different cut. Rounded edges are rising in popularity and giving a more refined look to the classic rectangular business card. If you feel like stretching the possibilities even further consider altering the shape to create an original cutout or whole punch out a design within your business card.

6. Remember people are intrigued by different textures and unique designs that catch their eye and make them smile. Have fun and get creative!

7. Get them through a company that will offer you optimized printing solutions and offer you options such as laminated finish, embossing, rounded corners and die-cutting.
