Make it legible: Be sure the font(s) you choose are easy to read. As a general rule, don’t go smaller than an 8 pt font. Also your font choice itself should capture the feeling of your card.

Triple check it over: Before you print your cards triple check your artwork and type is all-correct. I suggest even having someone else read it over. Sometimes after reading something you’ve created so many times you look past any errors. How disheartening finding an error after printing!

Add a picture: To design a business card, the brand image is a must. Having a photo, whether it is a picture of you, a cute drawing, part of your logo can help not only distinguish yourself but can help communicate the feel of your business without clutter. It could also help a contact more likely to remember you.
