You’ve heard by now that it’s a necessity for everyone—even web professionals—to have business cards. (They help you connect quickly, they showcase your design skills, and so on.) But it’s far rarer that anyone actually tells you how to design a business card that actually works, or even cooler, works with your website.
To help you think outside the box, the design services team at Company Folders have compiled some of their favorite business card design options. Some of them can even help you create a card that matches your WordPress site:
Imprint your website colors
When planning your business card design, think about the colors on your website. Do you have a brand color that will make a great background? Two brand colors that can create a pattern? Or a fun accent color that could be foil stamped onto the design? When you borrow brand colors from your website, it helps create a consistent identity for your company.
Make it interactive
Websites have fun clickable icons, dropdown menus, even videos that can play. People are constantly moving around the site and doing things—whereas they typically just look at a business card. If you want to have some fun, create an interactive, shaped, or 3D business card that people can enjoying playing with or using in their offices.
Include a similar image
Whether it’s your logo, a photo from your home page, or some other graphic, you can borrow imagery from your website to create one-of-a-kind business card. This tactic also lets you make sure there’s no mistaking your business card for any other brand.
