3 Business Card Design Mistakes That Drive Away Customers, Brooklyn, New York

A great business card design must accomplish several goals to be successful. It should be attractive and striking to draw attention to your brand, but it also needs to be readable for it to be effective. Alternatively, a poorly designed card will result in consumer disinterest. Below is a helpful list of common mistakes to avoid when designing your business card.

3 Common Business Card Mistakes to Avoid

1. Small Font

A standard business card is only 3.5 x 2 inches, but don’t let its compact size trick you into using a tiny font. Vision problems affect a large segment of the population, so make it easy on the eyes. Keep your font color dark and adjust the size depending on the font. Ideally, someone should be able to read your card from several feet away. Additionally, don’t use a loopy or cursive typeface that can be difficult to read.

2. Inconsistent Branding

3. Glossy Card Stock

While glossy business cards are attractive, they’re also difficult to write on. If you strike up a conversation with a potential customer, the recipient may need to make a few quick notes on your business card, which will be hard to do with a gloss coating. A high-quality, thick paper stock in a matte finish may be a better option.
