The Best Fonts for Business Cards Part Two
Use of Cursive Fonts
Cursive fonts with flowing, curved lines and letters connected like in handwritten calligraphy give writing a personal touch. Therefore, such fonts are particularly suitable for invitations, greeting cards, headings, or texts with a personal message.
Classic cursive fonts look very elegant, while rounder shapes are perceived as casual and cheerful. Script fonts are guaranteed to spark interest, but be sure to keep your text legible.
They should also not be used for longer passages of text, as they are challenging to read in smaller font sizes. If you can't imagine your business card without cursive, use it for sub-headings, such as Slogan or motto.
Combine Fonts On Your Business Card
Limit yourself to two fonts for your personal business card printing. Create a visual hierarchy and decide what information is most important - likely your name or small business name.
The rest of the information, such as your contact details and social media accounts, can be made smaller or in a different font.
Here you will find further tips for the optimal business card font:
- Combine a cursive or serif font with a sans serif font.
- Do not mix similar fonts.
- Use different styles (bold, normal, italic) of the same font for more contrast.
- Don't use more than three different font sizes on your business card (two are ideal).
- Choose high-contrast colors for the text and background. Every text field should stand out.
