Business cards are one of the most common print designs, so you’d think every designer and their grandmother would know how to make a creative business card. Yet the high number of unoriginal, uninspired business cards being passed out at networking events proves there’s a major gap in what we should know and what we’re actually creating.

To be fair, designing cool business cards is a lot harder than it looks. There are hundreds of options—from custom die-cuts to unique manufacturing materials to original images. Sometimes, when there are so many possibilities, it’s easier to stick with what you know instead of exploring new ideas. But, no more! The creative team at Company Folders is sharing their best business card advice to help you step up your game. You’ll learn practical tips like how to choose the right contact info and format your card for printing, plus cool creative options (edible designs, anyone?) If you’re feeling a little overwhelmed with all these options, connect with the custom business card designer that created this graphic to help you make the best choices for your next card.
