How to Customize Premium Business Card Templates in Photoshop
So, you've browsed premium business card designs, and you've found the perfect photoshop card template. What's next? Check out these five quick tips to help you customize your premium business cards in Adobe Photoshop.
We'll use this Photoshop business card template in this example. Download it and work along with the demonstration or use a Photoshop card template of your own.
Let's get started:
1. Use Your Photoshop Layers Panel
Layers are an essential part of working in Adobe Photoshop. You'll almost certainly need them to customize your premium business card designs.
To open up your Layers panel, go to Window > Layers, as shown below. This let's us see the "inside" of our Photoshop business card template.
Notice how the content has been organized into layers. This makes it much easier to edit than a solid, flat image. We can select a specific layer—where content has been independently isolated—to make changes to it.
2. How to Move and Rearrange Parts of Your Design
Let's experiment with this premise. In the example, below, the layer Shape 2 has been selected. Then, we can use the Move tool, in our Tools panel (as highlighted below), to move this shape anywhere we'd like in the composition.
Shape 2 is the multiple arches in this business card design. Here, we've moved it down in the composition.
Want to resize it? Go to Edit > Free Transform. Then, click and drag on the resize handles to resize this shape.
3. How to Change Shape Colors in Adobe Photoshop
We can easily change the color of a Shape layer by double clicking on the layer thumbnail, in our Layers panel. This part of the layer has been highlighted, in the preview below.
This opens up our Color Picker. Use the slider to select a new color. Photoshop allows us to preview our color selection before we commit to it. Once you're happy with your color choice, click OK.
Note that this process is specific to Shapes.
4. How to Edit the Text in Adobe Photoshop
Editing text is another essential when it comes to customizing your photoshop card template. Thankfully, this is easy to do.
Go to your Type tool in your Tools panel. It's highlighted, below.
Then, simply click on the text in your composition to begin editing. Type as you would in most word processing software.
You'll notice that the corresponding Text layer becomes active in your Layers panel, too. This is good to note. You can also isolate, select, and edit text by referencing and selecting from your Layers panel.
5. Work With More Than One Photoshop Document
Many premium business card templates are double sided. But this means your design will likely be split into two separate documents: one for the front, and one for the back. You will likely want to see both pieces of your Photoshop business card template at once.
You've got flexibility when you've got many documents open in Photoshop. Click on the file name and drag to undock the document. Then, position your documents in a way that works best for you. Sometimes, it can be helpful to have both documents visible at the same time, especially with a double sided business card.
How to Customize Premium Business Card Templates in InDesign
Adobe InDesign is also a solid choice for your premium business cards. Here are a collection of tips to help you jump into Adobe InDesign and get your business card customized and completed.
In this demonstration, we'll use this InDesign business card template below. Feel free to download it and work along with the walkthrough. Otherwise, you're welcome to use an InDesign template of your own.
Let's get started:
1. Use Your InDesign Pages Panel
Unlike Photoshop, it's likely your double sided business card template might be in one document, when working in InDesign. Take a look at your Pages panel.
Open the Pages panel by going to Window > Pages.
This document has two pages: one for the front of the business card, and one for the back of the business card. We can toggle between the two designs by clicking on the different pages.
2. How to Edit Text in Adobe InDesign
Next, let's take a look at editing text in InDesign. To start, select the Type tool. It's located in the Tools panel, as highlighted on the left.
Click on any text, and you'll notice that the applicable Text Box becomes active. In InDesign, content is held within rectangular frames. Edit the text as you would in standard word processing software. But notice that the text is confined to this space.
If you want the text to take up more space, resize the Text Box with the Selection tool.
3. How to Change the Font and Font Size
Want to change the font or the size of the font in your business card design? Head over to the Character panel. To open this panel, go to Window > Type & Tables > Character.
The Character panel is visible in the example below, on the right. Here, we can change things like the font, the font size, and other attributes that apply to our type.
Make sure to select your text first, with the Selection tool. If the text isn't selected and active, then the changes you make here won't apply.
4. How to Change Font Color in InDesign
Now, let's change the font color in InDesign. Start by selecting your text again with the Selection tool.
Then, we need to look towards the bottom of our Tools panel. Under the Stroke and Fill Color, click the small "T" icon—it reads "Formatting Effects Text". The one beside it's "Formatting Effects Container". Toggle between them to decide if our color change changes the text color or the color of the container.
If we're changing the text color, notice how the Fill Color looks like a letter "T". All we've got to do is click on the Text Fill Color (this colored "T" icon) and choose a color.
5. How to Change Frame Colors in InDesign
But how about changing the color of shapes and other design elements? We can use the same technique. This time, we want Formatting Effects Contents.
Let's go back to the front of our business card design. By default, the color applied here was black. All we need to do is:
- Select the background shape with the Selection tool.
- Click on the Fill Color.
- Choose a New Color.
- Click OK once you've selected the color you want.
Now, our black business card is a light blue color. Test out lots of different color schemes.
How to Customize Premium Business Card Templates in Illustrator
Adobe Illustrator is another popular business card format. Let's walk through customizing a business card premium design in Illustrator together. You'll notice it's got some process in common with both Photoshop and InDesign. It's easy to jump right in and make your chosen premium business card templates work for you.
We'll use this Illustrator business card template in this example. Download it and work along with the demonstration or use an Illustrator business card template of your own.Let's get started:
1. Layers In Your Premium Business Card Templates
Open up your Layers panel by going to Window > Layers. Like in other Adobe software, this is a space where we can view the "inside" of our design document.
In this particular business card premium design, the content has been separated into two layers: one for the content and one for the background. We can select the one we'd like to edit.
2. Edit Text With the Type Tool
Let's begin customizing our content with the Type tool. You can find it in the toolbar. Note that it is selected and highlighted in the example screenshot, below.
With the Type tool selected, simply click on the text you want to edit. Then, edit this copy as you would in most word processing software. Also, take a look at your Layers panel. You'll notice that the layer expanded, so we can see all the pieces on this content layer.
3. Change the Color Gradient
Normally, if we wanted to change the text color, we could turn to the Fill and Stroke color, in our toolbar. However, in this case, our text has a gradient applied. To alter that gradient, open the Gradient panel. You can find it by going to Window > Gradient.
Start by selecting the text using the Selection tool. It's the arrow in your toolbar, as shown below. Then, with this text select, we can edit the gradient in the Gradient panel. Just click on any of the dots at the bottom of the gradient bar. In this example, the first point has been changed to blue. Create any custom gradient you like.
4. Easily Move and Adjust Design Elements
Let's say you want to move or adjust the position of content in your premium business card designs. All we need to do is turn to our Selection tool again. It's selected, in our toolbar, in this example below.
With the Selection tool active, click on the element you'd like to move. Then click and drag to reposition it. You can also nudge items using the arrow keys on your keyboard.
5. View More Than One Document At Once
It's likely that most premium business card templates will include two files: one for the front and one for the back. That's this case with this business card template. You may want to view both files at once, so you can make adjustments across both sides.
To do so, go to File > Open to open additional files. Then, you can drag the documents to undock them. Resize the windows and you can reposition them in any way you prefer. This can be a convenient
way to preview both designs at once.
3 Quick-Fire, Business Card Design Tips
Here are three quick tips to choose the best business card template for your needs, make an impact with the right approach to design, and customize the tiny canvas to your unique company details:
1. Start With a High-Quality Template Design
There are a lot of high-quality professional business card templates, which makes it hard to decide on the right one to use. There are a few key considerations to keep in mind:
Think about how the design of each card. How well does it coordinate with your logo and branding? Does the layout and overall style fit your needs? Are you more interest in a minimal, professional card with bold use of color, like the Flat Business Card Template? Or do you want a business card with a photo option, as with the InDesign Corporate Business Card Template? In either case, you want a business card design that's well-organized, reads clearly and will make the right impression when you hand it to an important contact.
Beside style, you also want to look at graphics software. There are card features here that can be customized and edited in Photoshop, Illustrator, or InDesign. Do you have any of those programs and feel comfortable working in one of them? If not, you can also hire a professional graphic designer. They can work with your template, add your custom branding and company info to it for you, and help you get it printed correctly.
Learn how to customize a business card template design in this tutorial:
2. Keep it Simple (With a Dash of Creativity)
Don’t underestimate the power of simplicity. A minimal business card reads with clarity instantaneously. It’s clear, easy to read, and makes an immediate impression. You can represent your company with restrained elegance, without overdoing it.
But minimal business card template designs need not be dull. A well-placed image, a bright logo contrasted against a dark background, colorful content boxes, or interesting layouts—are elements that add a needed touch of creativity to a well-organized design.
Start with a simple template, then take care not to clutter the design with too many components as you customize. But be sure to add a dash of your creative brand and personality. Get more top tips for designing your premium business cards in this article:
3. Place Your Custom Info on Your Card
Keep in mind, you don’t want to add so much to your business card that it becomes confusing. The purpose of premium business cards isn't to overwhelm the people you hand them to, but to invite them to reach out. Clutter doesn't draw people in.
So, add only the important details. Don’t place all your social media accounts on your card, but just the ones you’re most active on, pay attention to, and will actively engage with prospects on.
Don’t add extra emails, or over the top design elements, and leave plenty of breathing room on your card. Here are a few details to add to your business card:
- Add your logo and company tagline.
- Insert your name and professional title.
- Include your full contact information.
- Add your website or landing page.
- Place links to your social media profiles.
- Position any custom design assets, like photos or icons.
- Customize the colors and design.
Add only your important contact information, direct people to reach out to you through your top channels and consider crafting a landing page that promotes your business to welcome them warmly. Adding a landing page URL to your business card takes a bit more time than just dropping in your home page but will yield better results.
