Braille name cards are a good way to show that your corporation is dedicated to serving everyone, remaining socially inclusive while not compromising on professionalism. While it’s a concept left untouched by many others, braille name cards are not only interesting, they can actually become part of a new design for your company altogether.
Here’s how to create them:
1. Name Card Design
Narrow down the important elements of your name card, leave only what you want as braille is a lot larger compared to the lettering size of regular printed ones. Make sure you come up with a design both for braille and also for the printed version. Keep your design straightforward and subtle as much as possible for easy tweaking.
If you are able to find templates, then feel free to use them as they are catered specifically for braille name card creation. However, if you are unable to get any, you can create your own files for editing. Make sure to leave some space so that they can be cut easily without interfering with the design.
Thanks to digital resources online, we don’t have to waste too much time with manually learning how to braille. There are a vast amount of translators that can translate your information into Braille for you! Simply make use of these translators to translate your information and you will get a sample source ready. However, please make sure to repeat this process until the braille translation more or less matches with the visual ones as translators can be faulty at times. If there is an expert available, they should be consulted just in case.
To be able to print out braille name cards, you are going to need a braille embossing printer. Braille is applied only to one surface of your name cards so that there will be no reverse on the opposite end. But you don’t have to worry- even though the cover one whole printed area, your printed design will not be affected!
