IntroductionIn the real world a business card designer is anyone who possesses graphic designer skills and uses them to create business cards for businesses or clients. There is also business card designing software, which allows users to design logos, pick colors, fonts, and images to a card, before printing. This software is quite similar to other design programs, such as Photoshop or Corel, except that it is specifically designed for a single purpose, thus is streamlined and simpler to use than heavier programs. Basically, the software presents the user with the ability to add logos, photos, fonts, personal or company information for the front and back of the cards, which can then be printed either on a home printer, or sent off to a print shop for a more professional card, made with high quality paper or glossy finishes to set your card apart from the rest of the field.
Price of Business Card Designer Software
Business card designing software can be found online for different prices, ranging from free to tens of dollars, but probably shouldn't cost over $100. If your computer already has Photoshop, Corel Draw, or another graphics program, these too can be used for designing business cards without the need to purchase an extra program. Some multi-use design programs will also offer templates for different needs, such as labels, letterheads, envelopes, and business cards.
Before jumping into the graphic design part of the creation process, or even before hiring a professional business card designer, some time should be spent studying and researching other card designs, logos, fonts, and business art, to understand what type of image you wish to represent your business. After some studying and brainstorming, you should come up with a few different ideas for logos and cards. Then the design process should begin, whether it is in-house, or outsourced to a professional. Business card design software can be used to create top notch, professional cards that can be printed on a home printer, or sent to a design studio for professional printing.
