A recent survey showed that around 70% of people still carry business cards as a form of introduction. Even in this digital age, the business card is still a very convincing networking and communicating tool. It is, after all, the most convenient form of handing out your personal and contact information.
In this week’s giveaway, we’re featuring All Business Cards — a simple online solution to help you design and print your own business cards. 15 lucky winners will each receive a set of 1000 business cards worth $135, personalised to suit your taste and needs.
For MakeUseOf readers and this giveaway, All Business Cards revealed a secret special offers page equipped with a professional design tool and printable products at heavily discounted prices.
All Business Cards also offers a wide selection of other products like bookmarks, magnets, stickers, letterheads and envelopes; just to mention a few. At this moment, we’re interested in their business cards.
Start designing your business card with their simple yet powerful online design tool. As you can see in the toolbar, you may upload your very own background or any image you wish to use.
In this example, I uploaded an illustration and by using the editing tools, I quickly resized and positioned the image.
If you aren’t in the mood to create your own background, All Business Cards has a huge selection of carefully categorised, pre-designed backgrounds at your disposal. Simply pick one to activate it.
And what about text? Well, you can enter your own text, change its font and size, then place it wherever you want. Or you can choose from the predefined layouts. Don’t worry, even if you pick a layout you don’t need to commit to it. The layout panel allows you to quickly fill in your details: name, company, address, telephone number, email, etc.
Once the text are placed on the card, you can still move them around, resize them, change the font, pick a different colour or skew the line of text.
Here’s a preview of the final result.
