3 Basics of Great Name Card Design


It is not enough to only be able to create a visually appealing name card. You must ensure that the name card you design leaves a strong and lasting impression on anyone who gets their hands on it. To do so, you must first recognize that there are a few factors to consider during the design process, as well as during printing since a well-planned design leads to a better printing outcome and vice versa. Simply placed, designing and printing a name card work in parallel to create a perfect name card.


Remember that a name card is a tool that represents both you and the company or kind of business that you have.


Hence, it must follow a specific theme that is both appropriate for you and relevant for the recipient of the card. To summarize, your name card must be tailored to your intended audience. Although, in general, here are the most important things to remember when designing a good name card in Singapore.


1. Content of the Name Card

To begin, consider what details you would like to have on your name card. Since the space on a name card is limited, there is not too much you can include there. In creating your name card, keep it straightforward and just provide details that are appropriate and essential.


People dislike having crowded name cards with so many words or phrases, so a plain name card style is much nicer and preferred.


A name card should ideally contain your name, your job title or location within the organization, your phone number, and your e-mail address. The details on your website are one of the right decisions that you can use in your design. This is even more important for the line of work that needs to show a portfolio to show some credibility or affirmation of the quality of service.


2. Font

If you cannot choose a decent font for your name card's content, it would not look good at all. Since a plain name card style is desirable, you can avoid using a font that is too stylized.


People get distracted from reading fonts like that because they are challenging to decipher. So, search for fonts that are plain and clear, as well as fonts that are ideal for simple and streamlined styles.


You should make the reading experience better by choosing a font size that is not too small nor too big. Keep it no less than 8 pts for easy reading, at the very least. Also, don't forget to leave some white space so that the text does not look cramped.


3. The use of colour

Colours are important for both the base or background colour of the name card, as well as other decorative elements and the name card text. Your choice of colours should complement one another, so choose a colour scheme where the colours are guaranteed to be pleasing to the eye. Be sure that the background colour and text have a strong contrast such that the content is easy to read.
