Name card printing FAQs 

How Many Name Cards Do I Need? 

The answer lies in your marketing goals and practical needs. If it is your first time, you can try ordering in a small quantity. We offer packages by box. One box equals to 100 name cards. The more you order, the more cost effective it is. In the long run, you will end up saving more money than ordering several times in small quantity orders. Ordering name cards in bulk is beneficial as not only that you can press down on your budget at the end of the day, but you can always be prepared for any occasion or events coming your way as you run your business. 

Should I Create My Own Design, Or Should I Hire a Professional Graphic Designer? 

If you are more familiar with designing, then you can definitely save more money by making the design on your own. However, there are certain insights and experiences that professional graphic designers can definitely offer that may help you create better looking name card that can serve its purpose to the fullest. Graphic designers are especially great if you have a concept in mind but finding it difficult to actually make it into a tangible result. Not only that, hiring a professional graphic designer allow you to sit back while being sure that your design is worked on by someone experienced. As a name card is also a part of a marketing campaign, it is important to have a professional design that can truly reach your target audience and convey the right messages while exuding a positive and strong impression each time it is given out. A professional design is highly valuable and it can really make a difference. 

At the end of the day, it’s your call. However, definitely consider about the importance and scale as well as the available resources you have to make this decision. 

What Are The Dos and Don’ts For a Name Card Design? 

At the very least, you have to pay attention to the balance between colors, graphics, and fonts. 

Let’s break down into them one by one. 

1. Colors 

The choice of color is very important in a name card design. As a name card should be able to represent your company or brand, it needs to bear a color that can easily be associated with your company or brand. It is great if the color choice for a name card is vibrant so it stands out. If a name card has strong colors, it will be able to appeal more toward the receiver. Moreover, vivid colors can also leave a stronger impression, making you get a higher chance of getting remembered.  

Now, the color choice does not only apply to the background color of the name card. Fonts that you choose also have color(s) that must come with the right choice. The mistake many people do is not paying enough attention to the contrast between the background color and the font color that results in texts that are difficult to read. A light background should have dark text or font color, while dark background should have light text or font color. This way, the text will pop out more and it will be much easier to be seen and read.

2. Font 

Choosing the right font for a name card sometimes is not that simple. A name card font should be kept straightforward and not overly stylized. However, it also needs to be able to look interesting and complement the whole appearance of the design. The most important thing about choosing fonts for a name card is to avoid font types that are difficult to read, as well as sticking to one or two types of fonts at maximum. This way, your design will look more pleasant and clean instead of cluttered and unprofessional. 

3. Graphics 

Some name cards include images, some don’t. It is ideal that at a name card should at least include the company logo for branding attempts as a name card is a small marketing tool that can really spread brand awareness in a subtle way. If more graphic or image is included, make sure that it is not overpowering the other elements. It should be in the background and kept subtle so that it won’t be a hindrance. Many name card designs that include graphics keep the images in low opacity to keep it from popping up too much and end up making the texts in the design difficult to read. 

What Is The Best Card Stock For My Name Card? 

Generally, the commonly used card stocks that are available to choose in reputable printing services are of good quality and they are all appropriate for business uses. They vary usually in thickness or weight, and the decision is entirely up to your preferences. If you like a thicker card, you can choose paper that has higher GSM. If you want to be able to stuff more cards at once into your wallet, then definitely go for thinner paper. Another consideration that may affect the decision of a card stock is the kind of look that you want to achieve for your name card. Certain looks require certain finishes, and some finishes can only be acquired by using a certain type of card stock. So, if you want to get it, you have to make sure that the card stock and finishes are compatible with each other. 

Can I Use More Than One Finishes For My Name Card? 

Absolutely. However, make sure that they work well with each other as well as the card stock. Some types of card stock don’t support certain types of finishes due to its characteristics. Make sure that you first check with the printing service before making the decision to use a certain finish for your name card. You should also remember not to overdo it, because it may not end up looking so well. Ideally, people add up to two finishes for their name cards.
