Key Information to Include When You Design A Business Card

When you design a business card, it's important to consider what information you will supply and also how much.

That's because the information you put on the card is just as important as the design.

Too, you will save yourself time and money if you consider what to put on your business cards now instead of later.

Just imagine how you would feel if you realized later (even after passing out your business cards) that you forgot to put something as important as your phone number on the card.

This page will give you a quick overview of what to include on your business card, so that you won't forget the important things.

What Information To Include On A Business Card?

Because the card holder usually won't remember everything about you or what you talked about, you should design a business card with what I call the "must haves". Here they are...

A business card must always include:

  1. Your business name, logo, and/or your name.
  2. The full address. This will include the street, city, state, and zip code.
  3. Company phone number(s) such as office, cell, or fax.
  4. A very brief description of what your business does or what services it provides.


Then depending on your situation you can add:

  • Your website.
  • Your personal or company email address.
  • The URL of your social media accounts - like your Facebook business page.
  • A photo of yourself (mostly a suggestion for realtors).

Now after you have included that information, use this sample questionnaire to evaluate your card.

Questions To Ask Yourself After You Design A Business Card

Does your business card serve you well? This short questionnaire will help you know whether your card is providing enough of the right information.

All well designed business cards should be able to answer these questions posted below.

  1. Who are you?
  2. What does your business do or provide?
  3. What makes you different from other businesses like you?
  4. Why should I remember or consider about your business?
  5. How can I get in contact with you?


Lastly, check for spelling errors, grammatical errors, and make sure you aren't repeating anything unnecessarily.

Once you have done that, you are all set! And it's time to shift your focus to the design aspect of your business cards.

That's the fun part!
