Know the print terms
There is another factor to consider when designing. It is the following three areas of your name card that should be left empty.
- Bleed area: the outermost area that will be cut while printing.
- Trim line: the border line where the card should be cut.
- Safety line: as the name implies this is for safety if the cut comes a bit inwards.
Remember basic design principles

Logo and graphics
Elements of a name card plays a good role in visualisation. Name Cards should have a logo which represents your business.

Graphics can easily grab attention, so you can add graphic elements in your name card to make it attractive. If you want to make your name card approachable and casual use vectors and vibrant colors.

Fonts and colors comprise a name card because they are predominantly present so it is important to choose them wisely. Your font should be attractive as well as readable. Remember each font possesses characteristics so make sure you use a font that suits your branding. Each Color has its own characteristics and emotions so it is important to know what you want before selecting your color. Also make sure that the color of your logo design and name card color should match with each other.
Use special finishes
Using special finishes are another to make your name card a stand out. You can top it in several ways however I’m listing a few popularly used special finishes that can make your card attractive
- Embossing: This technique is creating a 3 dimensional design that is used to make certain areas of your name card to pop out.
- Letterpressing: It is pushing the paper down and making the letters and design look it it has popped out of the paper
- Foil stamping: If you want your name card to look shiny and reflective like a thin foil then you can use this method.
