Business Card Design & Printing
Keep It Simple — A well made business card design does not have to be excessive or overly complex. Sticking to a simple and sensible design will often communicate the exact message of professionalism you desire. We highly recommend that you consider the color scheme in your business card design. Ask your designer to pay close attention to the colors in your design to ensure that your final print won’t have improper bleed or colors. For a crisp and clean look go with the right color scheme that evokes your brand.
Power Of The Proof — Paying just a small fee to have your design proofed is well worth it because you will have an exact vision of your business card before printing your large batch. The crucial step of proofing saves you money and the hassle of having a incorrectly printed business card. Reach out to one of our associates if you have any questions about your design and proofing.
