7 Characteristics of a Photographer’s Business Card

When it comes to creating your own photography card design you need to first understand the main characteristics of an effective business card. The best photography business cards are built around a business’s brand identity, which encompasses the name you choose for your business, your logo design, your company colours and the way you communicate about your company’s services. 

Here are some business card photography templates characteristics:

1. Brand Name

Bearing in mind that a strong brand name—and logo—go a long way in keeping a company in the mind of potential clients, you really need to take some time to consider what would be the best and most memorable name for your company.

2. Logo Design

As mentioned above, your logo is as important as the name you give your business so it’s important that you decide on one before you start to think about creating photo business cards. If you don’t yet have a logo and need some photography business logo design ideas the following articles should help. 

3. Colour

As is the case with your logo, the colours you use in your photo business card photography templates should reflect your company’s brand identity. If you haven’t yet worked out your company’s colour scheme and want to know more about how to do so the following article will help you understand how to work with colour to construct a logo and your company’s brand identity.

4. Font

The font you use also needs to reflect your company’s brand identity. For example, if you’re primarily a child photographer you may use a more playful font on your card, whereas a corporate photographer should opt for a more formal font.  

5. Shape and Orientation

Now there’s the matter of your card’s shape. The best photography business cards are generally rectangles and use either a landscape or a portrait orientation, but they can also come in various other shapes like circles, ovals, squares and customised shapes.

6. Card Stock

Think about the type of material you want your card printed on. High quality business cards are often printed on 14- or 16-point card stock on glossy, matte or pearl surfaces. Glossy surfaces tend to make colours pop, while pearl and matte surfaces can look more sophisticated. To decide on a finish, consider what works for the overall design of the card and your brand identity. 

7. Business Information

The final thing to consider is the information you add to your card. Resist the impulse to use up every available space on your card. Include only the most relevant information. For some businesses, this may be your name, the company name, and address of your company, telephone number, e-mail address, and website. For other businesses, this may be just your name and title, the name of the company and a telephone number or email address.

Though business card photography templates come in circles, ovals, squares, and various customised shapes, most are rectangular with either a landscape or a portrait orientation. In addition, depending on the part of the world you’re living in their standard size can vary ever so slightly. The thing to bear in mind when it comes to approaching shape and orientation is that they should match your brand identity

2. Add Your Logo and/or Other Graphics

5. Finalise Your Design
