Put Yourself on a Card

When you’re writing a cover letter you’re basically selling yourself on one page but let me give you a challenge can you sell yourself on a 3.5 x 2 inch card? The card I’m talking about is a business card. Something so small but very important when you’re trying to reach and gain more clientele for your business.

What information should be a basic business card:

  • Individual Name or Business Name 
  • Title
  • Contact Information

There are hundreds and thousands of business cards out in the world but what will but your card over the edge. Will your card get lost on people’s desks? That’s where your creative juices need to start flowing. 

Great ways to make your business card standout:

  • Colors
  • Font
  • Layout
  • Quotes
  • Image

Figure out the people you are trying to attract. What will get their attention? Are your attracting men? Try using bold and masculine colors and fonts. Are you attracting woman? Use curvy fonts and pastel colors. If your clientele is both men and women try using colors and fonts both sexes will like.

The layout of a business card is important just like the font and color. How do you want to get your clientele’s attention? What do you want to be known for? Your name is more important than your phone number so you wouldn’t want to make your number stand out more than your name. 

For the quotes and the image that’s adding your own personal touch to the card. The image is the symbol to your business or your face. A simple quotes tells the person what your business is about. At the same time you don’t want your business card to be so busy a person wouldn’t want to take the time to read the card. 

Great ways to get your business cards created and printed are:

  • Vistaprint
  • Zazzle
  • FedEx
  • Check out local printing professional services in your area

I hope this article was helpful and informative.
