Here’s a riddle: how is a business card like a car?
Okay, so it’s not really a riddle—there’s a legitimate answer to this question. Just like today’s cars are faster and more high tech than the first Model T that rolled off Ford’s assembly line, today’s modern business cards are more cutting edge than ever.
That’s because these cards have to make instant connections at crowded networking events. And just like one slow car causes a traffic jam on your morning commute, an outdated business card can knock you out of the networking race. A boring card is forgotten and ignored in favor of anything that’s more interesting.
So how do you create something memorable? This quick and easy guide to creating business cards will teach you how to maximize your design’s potential to catch your audience’s eye.

These business cards look amazing—but they’re also pretty complex. Unless you have a degree in graphic design, it can be a nightmare to hammer out all of the design details. Choosing the wrong imprint method can ruin a paper card, but that’s nothing compared to the negative side effects of using inedible ink on a candy card.
You’ll need a professional business card designer to make sure you avoid manufacturing mistakes. They’ll help you create a cool design that’s 100% functional, and you’ll have a liaison when it’s time to work with the printer. Not to mention that your cool new business card will be the envy of your colleagues and competitors alike!
