Business cards – a mandatory attribute of modern communication and protocol

Rules

  • The first rule denies all others. Well, not only deny them , but … It says: “The rules are not taboo .”
  • Recommended fewer colors – 1-2 , maximum four. In laser printing is already going to be meaningless .
  • Only a few – 1-2 – and legible fonts. Unlikely to please anyone with a business card so beautiful calligraphic letters font from which no one can read the name…
  • Style – from the boss to the lowest in the hierarchy manager – the same style. This is still a company policy. Even ordinary employees is good to have business cards – that says a lot about the care of the company to its staff. Personal cards can also be stylish, of course.
  • In order to achieve the same style – it is recommended to use the services of the same printing company.
  • Address required except diplomatic cards, if not personal displays work address if personal or combined – maybe two. Allowed to have addresses in a separate mailing address, but if mailbox should not stand alone – no real physical address inspires confidence…

  • Personal business cards allow the use of handwritten fonts. However, we should not overdo it with permission. At least legible. Otherwise, the pharmacy can not help you.

  • The back is only used if necessary, and then for one of the following:
  • map of the location of the company;
  • services;
  • additional phones;
  • date and time, if you play a role and a coupon for a visit;
  • slogan.
The back can also be used e.g. for slogan

  • On the back is allowed handwriting. Of course, you can write on the front side. Especially if the doctor writes with a strong male character, brings quite original style shades… sometimes the writing can go and logo.

  • Another language – other Business Cards. In Bulgaria it is normal to have back the English version, but in some countries it is an expression of bad taste. Besides, I already travel the world. On the other hand not everyone can read Cyrillic, so the question is very controversial. Furthermore, in a crisis somehow more effective out bilateral bilingual business cards.

  • Do not use ornate design with many different things – fonts, images, ribbons and more.
Sometimes the design is quite simple, but clear enough - a family consultant.

  • To display only the essential basics.
  • It is assumed the cards ladies , wives of public officials have a 8/4 cm, but they have to decide whether it is justified and whether they want to be different – most business card holders are 9/5 cm is often a trash can handy.
  • Not recommended the use of fine print . Young people also exchange business cards, but it will not be pretty if you happen to submit an older gentleman card you have to keep it a few feet away to read it.
  • The colors should be approached carefully, might be inadequate. Pink card for a lawyer , even of the sexiest lawyer somehow not working…
