Graphic Design Friday: Get noticed with die cut business cards
Business card printing is something that every business needs, no matter how big or small. Because there are so many business cards floating around in networking land, you need to make sure yours stands out from the crowd. To do so, your business cards need to be exceptional quality and be uniquely yours.
One way to stand out from the square crowd is with die-cutting. Today’s Graphic Design Friday video tackles this topic. One of our graphic designers explains how to make the most of a die cut business card.
We will be back next week with more graphic design tips from PrintPlace.com.
Hello. Happy Friday. I’m Kadie from PrintPlace.com.
Today we’re going to talk about designing for die-cut business cards. For an example today, I’ve chosen the rounded corner die cut. A tip to keep in mind is to keep it simple and clean.
First of all, choose one font for your text and keep it between the sizes of 8 to 14 point. Secondly, have a max of three colors for your overall design. Too many colors will clash and become distracting.
Most importantly, keep your corners clean. Keep photos and artwork away from the corners where they will be cut off. The safest thing to do is to center all your information.
With these simple tips you’ll have a great looking business card to promote yourself and your business.
