Starting a business is both challenging and rewarding for many business owners and a business card is your way of introducing the client to your business. Creating your own business cards is not rocket science, especially with all of the Internet websites offering free business card templates. With sites like Vistaprint, making your own business cards with free logo designs is as easy as one, two, three. You can upload your own logo from your computer or use the ones provided and tweak them a bit.
Things You'll Need
- Computer with Internet access
- Credit Card to pay for shipping
Sign up for a membership on a website such as Vistaprint. The company offers free business cards and you only pay for shipping. Create an account using a valid email address and a password that you will remember.
Log onto the website and click on "Free Products" and then select "Free Business Cards." Choose your design according to your business concept. Some of the concepts included on the website are agriculture and farming, animals and pet care, business services, construction and trade, education and child care, manufacturing, information technology, real estate, retail and sales, sports and fitness and home maintenance and improvement. Select the design that best suits what your business hopes to accomplish.
Fill in the fields to display what will be printed on your business card. Fill out each field with the appropriate items. Put in your company name, company message, your full name, job title, address, phone number, fax number, email address and website. Of course these fields are not mandatory and you do not need to insert that exact information. You can alter it as you wish.
Check the proof for any mistakes. Make sure you have everything you want on the front and back of the business card. Check the box that shows that you have agreed to the business card design and printed message.
Choose a logo from the ones created for you. There are several options available for the free business cards. You'll have to pay to get the more advanced logos or to have your logo specially made by a design team. Add your company name and slogan to the logo.
Check the proof for the logo and add your logo to your business card. Double proofread everything because once the cards are printed, they cannot be changed. Submit your order and wait for your cards to be printed and mailed. Vistaprint will send you an email once your cards have been shipped. You'll get 250 business cards for free. All you pay is the shipping costs.
Tips & Warnings
- Don't forget to proofread your cards before submitting; you will not be able to make changes later.
