Choose readable sizes and fonts. Select a size of at least 8 pt. for your text and a readable font style. Avoid cursive or thin fonts at all times.
Highlight your important info. Don’t miss out placing important details like your contact info and address and a link to your online portfolio so they can view your work online.
Add beautiful imagery. Add a unique photo of yourself doing what you love or capture a symbolic feature that represents your work. This way, it’ll be easy for your prospects to imagine the type of service you bring.
Keep it simple and professional. Even though you’ve personalized your card, it’s great to have an element of surprise in you, and let your talking do the promotion of your services rather than dumping every single detail on your card which can be confusing.
