Die Cut Business Card Printing

Video Transcription

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.
