Exchanging business cards is important  when meeting new business contacts.

Business cards are small but very important pieces of advertising material. There are many benefits to having business cards. Their small size allows you to carry many of them at once. You can easily hand one to a potential customer, thereby beginning a relationship you hope will be profitable. And because business cards have empty space on the back, you can write additional information and personal messages on the card. You must have professional-looking business cards because they are such important selling tools. So you have to know how to write an address on a business card if you are designing your own cards.

Step 1

Choose a type font that matches your business card design and that is legible. If your business card has a design or motif, choose a font that matches it and that is visually appealing. If you are designing a plain business card, choose a font that can be read easily. It is crucial for potential clients to be able to read your address and contact information so that they can call you and visit your place of business.

Step 2

Determine where you are going to place the address. The address typically is located under your name and title. Put your address where it will stand out on the card so clients can find it easily.

Step 3

List your street address on the first line of your address. To conserve space on your business card, include the suite number in this line as well, placing it after a comma that separates it from the street address. For example:

152 Main Street, Suite 320

Step 4

Add your city, state and ZIP code on the line under the street address. For example:

Name Title 152 Main Street, Suite 320 Livonia, MI 48154

Tips

  • While not part of your physical address, you can add phone numbers followed by your email address in the lines under your physical address.
