What Is a Blank Card?
A blank card may refer to a blank ID card or a blank appointment card. No matter what the purpose, it contains certain elements that make up the card. For the former, it includes a picture of the ID holder, name, address, contact person in case of emergency, the signature of the ID holder, and company/school logo. For the latter, it is made for a client or a representative from another company who wishes to have an appointment with you.
In every 15 people, at least one has been a victim/will be a victim of identity fraud. Identity fraud happens when an individual is too lax on providing his/her information online. If you are fond of using your credit/debit cards for online transactions, then you might want to check this too because some websites are unreliable.
There's nothing wrong with socializing/transacting online, as long as you are cautious of what you are putting online.
How to Create a Blank Card?
When creating your blank card, you will need specific tips to help you do so. Read our suggestions below.
1. Determine the Purpose of Your Blank Card
To decide on the type of contents, you may want to decide on the kind of card you are going to make. You cannot just provide the materials then decide on the purpose after that. You may search for blank card samples online for you to have an idea.
2. Provide the Related Information
Once the purpose of your blank card has been established, you may now provide the related information. For an ID card, you may provide space for the holder's picture, name, signature, address, etc. For the appointment card, give the company information, the caller's name, and the time and date of their appointment (also, secure yourself a copy of this, too).
3. Input the Design
For your blank card to have some life into it, incorporate colors, fonts, and design. You may choose colors that are related to the company colors. For fonts, select ones that maintain readability such as Arial, Calibri, or Times New Roman (be wary of the font size because you might be taking too much space). For the design, it must provide beauty; not interfere with the contents.
To maintain presentability and formality, you may provide a white background.
4. Plan on Your Card's Orientation
This suggestion refers to your preference whether you want your blank card to either be horizontal or vertical. If your card needs ample space, then you might prefer the vertical orientation. Whatever orientation you prefer, it must contain all the elements required or contents.
5. Add Images
For an ID card, this is recommended. Aside from the ID card holder's image, provide the company logo as well for officiality purposes.
6. Print and Use
Once you are done with all the necessary elements to be incorporated, you may now print and use your card. Since these cards are for official use, the reasonable thing to do is have it professionally printed, so the results are exceptional.
ID cards are printed in a material that's hard and plastic.
