    4. Design Business Card

    Start customizing the layout of the card. In the display window, drag the different sections (eg- Name, company address, email, etc) around the layout according to your preference.

    Do not forget about the back of the card. Adding a slogan or brand logo will create a lasting impression on the viewer.

    Tip! Make sure important information is in, but not overcrowding the layout. There needs to be a focal point that drives the eyes to the most crucial information whether it be the name, brand imagery, or contact information. Image displaying how to design business card layout

    5. Export or Print

Click the Export button in the main toolbar and adjust the card layout and margin settings along with the bleeds and crop marks. Once you are happy with the settings, click Export again to save the business card as a PDF file so you can send it to a professional printing service.
