What makes a successful Business Card?

A professional business card should be designed to attract and acquire new customers to your product or services. Not only is it an advertisement, a networking and lead-generating tool, it is a visual representation of you and your business. The bottom line is if it is not bringing you business and presenting a professional image of you and your company, it is not working.

What makes a business card effective?

Is it originality? Legibility? Simplicity?

Perhaps it's how your card prompts the recipient into contacting you. A clean, uncluttered design shows that you care about appearance and immediately sends out a professional vibe.

First and foremost, your card must clearly show your contact details. That's the number one priority. Even if your card is poorly designed, it must allow people to contact you. Kind of a no-brainer, but you'd be surprised how many cards hide the contact info away behind some over-indulged color scheme or illegible typeface.

Size deserves a mention. If your card doesn't fit into a holder or wallet it's not likely to be kept close-at-hand.

      I love the design and concept on many of these cards. As a gallery owner and artist I hand out around 1000 cards a year. Definitely good to have a memorable card that makes a statement.

      Love the lens and some of the cards. Have you seen those plastic (credit card type) cards? A local garage gave me one as an ice scraper for the car. In the winter it stays in my wallet all the time - it's surprisingly effective as an advert and as a scraper.
