Business card printing is one service offered by most printers, including online printing companies like 4over4.com. Production is fast and delivery can be very prompt, right to your door when you order card printing online. The basic business card is created simply, and will include important contact information such as name, company name, address, telephone and fax numbers, and many today also include an email address.
Business cards date far back in history, originally created as a type of calling card that a visitor could leave behind. In recent history, business cards have been improved to include additional color inks, photographic images, and fancy card treatments like embossing, die-cuts, coatings and raised ink thermography. Printing services almost always include the offering of business cards, in addition to flyers, stationery, banners, signs, and booklet printing.
When ordering printing online, printing companies like 4over4.com show pre-designed layouts that their customers can easily use to facilitate ordering and designing custom products. Card printing covers a wide range of products, from standard business cards to fold over cards, table tent cards, show cards, poster cards, menus and similar products. Card stock lends durability to the products without a huge increase in price.
Logo placement should always be prominent, and preferably set off from other text or design by its own design and colors. The logo is the simplest method for achieving branding on your printed materials. When printing online, you may be able to take advantage of extra printing services, such as storage of your logo and other elements of your designs with that online printing company. Online elements are easy to resize and move around at will.
Certain colors are used for impact, such as red or yellow, especially on a dark or black background. Use a black or gray shadow to increase visibility of some text lettering. The most readable text is dark on a light background. Putting light pink text on a dark pink background would be difficult to read. Black on white, red on white, blue on white or other lighter background colors/patterns is more easily read.
Colors and images should be used sparingly, to avoid a cluttered look and also for better impact. If an image is used for a background, any foreground text should either be shadowed or placed in an area of the image where it will be most readable. If someone cannot read the business card, it fails to be effective.
