Before you start designing your name card, the first thing you need to do is to always compile the relevant information required. It is important as this is due to the relatively small size of the card, thus limiting the amount of details you can include into it. In this article, we’ll run through the few essential contents to include into your name card!


Your Company Logo

Logos represent your brand’s identity and what your company does in the business industry. This symbol of your brand lets customers identify your company easily with a single glance. So it is very important for it to be on your name card.


Your Name and Designation

Of course, it is a must that every name card should include your name, either your full name or your nickname. When people are going to contact your company from a name card, the contact person will be the one they 're going to talk to.

As for your designation /  position, you should include them on your name card as well. This will get people to recognise your position within the company, and inspire trust, too!


Your Basic Contact Details (mobile number, email, address)

The purpose of a name card is to give people a way to get in contact with you, and you’ll have to tell them how. It is best to include at least one contact method on your name card. In most cases, people will include their mobile number, email or address so that their customers can have many ways to contact them.


Websites or Social Media

Website URL or social media profiles aren’t always necessary but they are useful connecting tools for potential customers. Nowadays, many companies include their website URL into their name card, and with good reason. After all, website URLs are short and simple, so they are perfect to fit in your little name card! 

If your company actively uses social media pages for marketing purposes, including them is also a good idea. A simple instagram or facebook logo with your company name will do in these cases. 


Wrap Up

A useful name card should include your company logo, name, job title, your basic contact details (mobile number, email & address), website and social media handles.
