Your business card is often the first impression you’ll make on a prospect. It’s very much a matter of, “Hello, how do you do? Would you like my card?” And what follows in the moments your business card lands in their hand and their eyes take in the design and information is a split-second first impression that can greatly mark how you will do business in the future — or if you’ll even do business at all!
A good business card can speak volumes and that’s why investing in its design is so important. Any design you choose doesn’t have to be over-the-top or flashy but it should certainly represent you personally or your brand and it should clearly convey what you do and what your contact information is.
If your brand is colorful, then your business card should reflect this as well. Bright, bold colors make a statement on their own and can leave prospects feeling a range of emotions. The psychology of color is a long-time discussed thing in business and if you want to use color to make an impact, you may consider the emotions associated with each:
- Red: Anger, energy, love, and passion.
- Orange: Joy, creativity, invigoration, and enthusiasm.
- Yellow: Energy, warmth, attention, and honor.
- Blue: Sympathy, peace, spirituality, and sincerity.
- Green: Nature, calm, fertility, and tranquility.
- Purple: Royalty, wealth, extravagance, and mystery.
- Brown: Reliability, resilience, and maturity.
- Black: Power, elegance, formal, and strength.
