When you start a business, it's a great idea to have a business card designed for you. After all, it's the first thing that potential customers will see when they visit your office.

You want to be sure that it looks not only professional but also eye-catching. If you're a creative person, then you can definitely accomplish this. Here's what to include on a business card to make sure that you impress everyone you meet. 

When it comes to designing a business card, you need to be thoughtful. The first thing that a person will see about your business is how you've designed it.

In other words, the card needs to stand out and make a statement. Basically, there are three major components: a good idea, a good design, and a compelling message, which all came together to form something that makes a lasting impression. 

Depending on your business, you might want to get creative with the colours used, or you might prefer to keep things simple. No matter your choice, you need to ensure that it's eye-catching so that your brand will be clearly remembered.

If you're creative but unsure how to get professional, you can always take advice from professionals online through videos or online name card templates.

One can even hire a freelance graphic designer to help you with the templates for your name cards. These freelancers are often available on Fiverr, Upwork, freelancer.com and Guru. 

A business card doesn't need to be rectangular. There are now many shapes available, including circular and elliptical.

This can be as simple or as detailed as you wish, although most companies opt for around five touches of social elements on their business cards: name, phone number, email address, website and slogan.

In addition to ensuring that you have all these details available, you should also try to ensure that you include a sturdy logo design or graphic that shows off your unique brand.
