When you are at the stage of business card printing, you need to be sure that the cards are conceived and designed correctly for them to become effective marketing tools to connect with people.

With that said, are you really sure that your business cards are conceived and designed correctly?

To ensure that your business card printing project comes out right, below are questions you need to ask yourself before getting your business card printed.

Should the style of my business card matter?

Although the design and style of your business cards can create the ideal impression on your recipients especially when the elements have a certain theme that brings the image of your brand, the function of business cards is to provide your company’s contact details so potential customers can reach you.

Therefore, strike the balance between creativity and functionality – experiment on the look of your custom cards to improve their appearance so people would be more encouraged to keep the cards and reach you soon.

How do I choose the colors and paper to use?

Being able to come up with a theme for your business card printing would help you decide on what colors to use. You can do a mix and match of certain shades to see which will be effective on your work and would give a boost on the design.

Consider full-color printing if you want to high-quality appearance for your business cards. You could choose to print with 4/4, 4/1, or 4/0 with this printing process. The numbers stand for the colors used in printing your business cards - cyan, magenta, yellow, and black (key). These colors comprise the color mode for printing known as CMYK.

This means that 4/4 will have a back-to-back print using CMYK while 4/1 would only use black for the back portion. Of course, 4/0 means that you will only apply printing on one side.

When it comes to selecting the paper, show some authority through your business cards by going for sturdy and high-class materials like the 14 pt. UV or matte coated cardstock. Also, you can go the eco-friendly route with our FSC-certified, 13 pt. 100% recycled paper stock made of recycled fiber bleached without the use of harmful compounds.
