Compile the information that you want to list on your card, including your name, e-mail address, phone number, and web site. Add a logo designed by you or a professional.
Add additional details on the back of the card
Add additional information that you wish to include on the back of the card.
Print and cut your cards to size
Print your cards using a quality cardstock or perforated business cardstock. Separate perforated cards or use a ruler and a craft knife to cut the cards to the correct size.
Distribute cards to current or potential clients
Distribute your cards to current and potential clients. Keep a stash of cards handy at all times – you never know when you might need them.
