Business cards are important to have for every professional. They can serve many purposes but their primary purpose is to tell who you are, what you do, and how people can contact you. A great business card can help you get more clients.

Before you design your business card, it is important to know what the card should include. There are hundreds of business card designs which dictate important information. When in doubt, follow these basic guidelines. An experienced business card designer can also help you optimize the design to have a unique card that depicts the information that you need in a legible manner.

Size of Business Card

First things first. Pick out the size of your card. The standard business card is 3.5×2 inches. The advantage of choosing a standard business card size is convenience. It will fit most business card holders and have space for important information. If you want to stand out, you may want to choose a square or mini business card.
