    1. Bleed

    When you print name cards, make sure to leave some bleed areas so that you can cut out the name cards without compromising the details on the name card. This way, you can make sure that you won’t be wasting your time or additional resources by having to reprint. It may take some adjusting when it comes to knowing how much space to leave as the bleed area so be sure to do some testing first.

    2. Software

    Most software programs dedicated for image editing and the like work well for name card printing. Most people use photoshop however, Adobe Illustrator and other similar softwares are actually the recommended softwares as they allow more control for designing logos and everything else. This is good as you can save the softcopy in high resolution and adjust the print quality.

    3. Print quality

    Print quality is important- you need to ascertain that the name card product matches the colour scheme offered, if the ink would smudge, what materials they would look best when printed on and advice other alternatives if necessary. Make sure to clean out any residual ink out of your printer before you print your name cards by running a blank piece of paper through to it twice or more times.

    4. Tutorials

    Tutorials can help immensely if you’ve hit a snag in your name card design and aren’t quite sure how to continue. Make sure to look out for simple tutorials on what you want to create and practice to familiarise yourself with the procedure.

    5. Experiment

    Practice around with regular card stock and move onto different materials to see for yourself the effect on each. Familiarisation requires constant practise and seeking improvement requires consistent practice after all. Find out for yourself what works for you and what doesn’t.

    Once you have gotten through all these 5 steps, you should be able to create a simple name card for yourself. The process of designing is never easy but hey, everyone has to start somewhere so start now with what you have and know!
