Business Card Design Tips - Four Tips to Design Your Ideal Business Card

Even with the stir to everything digital, the exchange of a printed business card is time-tested ritual in direct business connections. The initial decision a prospect makes is about you. Does your business card look and feel professional and send the right message? Produce an unforgettable business card and you can lift up your business above your competitors before the prospect has ever seen your website. With so many business cards in the field, it's vital to have one that will stand out among the rest. An original or custom designed business card portrays more than just a name and phone number, it is furthermore your brand personality. Having adequate and professional business cards is one method that you signal people that you are running a reliable business, and people want to deal with businesses that they feel are reliable. Passing someone your business card is your first chance to back up your words with a physical example of your style and professionalism. 

Simplicity

Keep your business card design simple. Select a design that mirrors your brand, and show your business well. Include a tagline as a description of your business. You wouldn't have to make it long. Even a small sentence or slogan will do. The significant thing here is that the person who receives your card will not be mystified as to what type of business you are running. Also, designing the card with left-aligned text is the easiest to read, while centered text looks untidy and can be more difficult to read. It’s crucial to display your business logo, and try not to permit it to overpower the front of the card or put it too close to the edge. Don't make your logo too big also, don't make the font too small so it can be comfortably read.
  
Information

The main mission of a business card is to make it easy for people to make contact with you. Include only the contact information that is absolutely required. Make sure your name, job title and business name or logo, are visible. Think carefully about which contact details to incorporate. You need to have a balance between providing enough points of contact, without making your card look disorganized. You could also try to emphasize your name or main contact information by making it slightly bigger or bolder than the rest of the info. Make certain that all details are correct before printing and update the cards when details change. It is unprofessional and unappealing to cross out and write any details additionally.

Printing

The paper standard is a measure of quality. Think about the thickness of your business card. Thicker cards tend to feel more luxurious, and they make your business appear more professional. Glossy card-stock is the business card paper to select if you are planning on printing any photograph on your business card. You can also pick this type of paper for your business card if you want a shiny logo on it. Paper with a heavier weight, mainly with rag bond edging or embossing will add that level of quality and feel you get from uppermost quality business cards. Although some of the paper that you can buy to create your personal business cards is heavy enough to pass for an authentic business card, you will get far better results by having your business cards professionally typeset and printed. 

Font Choice and Readability

Make sure that you use the right font size so that it would be understandable. Your name has to be larger than the rest of the text so that it can be noticed and would be easier to read. Do not use too many font styles. You can combine at least two to three fonts. If you overdo it, it will be less clear and even heavy to the eyes. If people can't easily read your business card, then the business card is unimportant. Keep in mind that business cards are often exchanged in poorly lighted places where readability becomes more of a problem. So, use power fonts only to highlight the focal point of the business card design. Is it the business name? Does the logo already use a power font, and can it be used for the business name? 

The business card is just the beginning of a business relationship, and those that think business cards are just a way of exchanging contact information, even in this digital age, are missing the point.

Online Marketing Ideas | Smart Marketing Ideas For Businesses Without A Budget

http://bit.ly/1hnHtHr

Considering the widespread reach of the internet, online marketing is an area that no business or brand can afford to disregard. Internet Marketing is one of the most cost-effective approaches of advertisement. While the size of a budget does control the quantity of money that can be directed towards marketing expenses, on the Internet, every business performs on the same stage. The costs related with starting a website, and then, using marketing articles or Social Media to establish an online existence is minimal when compared to the costs of traditional forms of advertising. And unlike traditional forms of marketing, when you market online, your audience is precisely targeted. The only people who see your advertisements are people who are looking for somebody like you. Additional benefit is that the Internet is enabling clients to purchase from businesses outside their geographical location; many items that were once available only in certain areas now are available globally.

Introduction
Media Novak is a creative design agency that specializes in web design, online marketing, graphic design and corporate identity solutions.

We started our company with some basic ideals—offer our customers exceptional design, while delivering a positive customer experience. These ideals have helped grow our business and drive customers to our door. A majority of our business comes simply from “word of mouth” referrals—one customer telling another of the experience that we offer here. We consider this the ultimate compliment.

We’re different.
Award - winning work can attest to our skills. But top-notch creativity isn’t measured only in accolades or eye-catching design. It’s about doing things a little differently - and better - than the rest. It’s about understanding that we’re not just marketing for our clients, but marketing for our client’s customers.

While most web and graphic design firms focus purely on design or programming, Media Novak is interested in your business. What good is having a nice brochure or website if they aren’t supporting your business goals?
