If minimalistic and elegant name card designs are what you prize, then you can consider subtle finishing options for your name cards. For example, a text-based finishing option. Here are 5 of such examples for you to choose from:
1. Raised printing
Add a 3D ‘popping’ effect on the text on your name cards for a subtle yet attention grabbing way of focusing the reader’s attention on your name card details. It’s stunningly simple, elegant and yet commands attention in an effortless manner- something everyone should hope to achieve with their name card designs.
Debossing is also a subtle text-based finishing option that is effective for name card designs. Debossing typically caused depressed impressions against name card stock, creating deeper impressions against it. When you run your fingers over the debossed text, the texture improves memory since it’s etched in and the act of repeatedly interacting with debossed name cards can cause flesh memory to set in.
3. Die cut
Instead of cutting name cards into shapes, it would be subtle yet interesting if you applied the same concept to the text portion. Making use of die cut techniques, cut and trace the details out of your name cards- simple but effective when it comes to drawing emphasis on the right information while making a strong daring impression.
Embellishments work well with typography design as well, especially when you are able to involve the embellishments as part of your text. For example, if you have a botany business and your name card text is worded with vines, you could add related embellishments with felt leaves and the like! It’s an out of the box yet special way of showcasing not only your creativity but also the daringness it takes to innovate new name card designs.
5. Foil stamping
Foil stamping works extremely well with text by allowing it to stand at the forefront of your name card with different colour and texture as well. It is a subtle yet beautiful finishing effect to combine with text and the amount of different effects you can achieve with different types of foil stamping speaks for itself.
