Come on, admit it! 

You’ve used the same bland template design for your business card for years. Once a showstopping extension of your brand your paper business cards are past their expiration and just aren’t cutting it for you anymore.


Let me help you. In this blog, I'm going to give you 8 excellent tips on how to design the perfect business card and how the new digital age of networking may be the best way for you to go.

Understand Your Brand 

Your card is an extension of your brand. Reflect on your brand's core values, colors, and emotions it evokes. This understanding will serve as the foundation for your card's design. Think about what material you use and how that represents you. For example, SpaceX used V1CE’s Silver and BlackMetal Business Cards with the SpaceX logo showing a true representation of their brand.

Embrace Minimalism 

Long gone are the days of getting everything from your name to your star sign printed. Keep it simple! While the digital realm offers endless design possibilities, simplicity often reigns supreme. A clean, uncluttered design ensures your card remains professional and easy to navigate. 


Prioritize High-Quality Images 

Whether it's your logo, a profile picture, or even you showcasing what you sell through your V1CE product catalogue, ensure all images are crisp and high-resolution. Pixelated graphics can detract from your card and profiles overall appeal.

Experiment with Typography 

Typography can set the mood. While you should prioritize readability, don't shy away from experimenting with fonts that align with your brand's personality. But please do make sure it matches your brand's personality, nobody wants to see a child's play area being advertised with Gothic text, as much as nobody wants to see a funeral home being advertised with bubble writing. (Okay maybe that would be funny to see) 

 That definitely doesnt work...


Choose Colors Strategically 

Colors can convey emotions and brand values. Stick to a cohesive palette, and remember to consider how these colors appear across various devices. See how The Ivy uses its soft pastels to match with the natural feel of their Restaurants or how Rolex used V1CE’s 24k Gold card to represent their exclusivity.

Create A Profile To Match

Your digital card profile is just as important as your card. Using V1CE’s full range of appearance options you can customise your profile to be just as on-brand as your card using your brand colours and upload your own logos for buttons.
