A business card is sales tool that is necessary for success. Every meeting, whether it's social or business, is an opportunity to network. Carrying a business card keeps you prepared with contact information when meeting potential clients. A business card should contain your name, address, phone number, fax number and email address. The card should also contain your business's name, website and logo. Some businesses have more than one logo because of the different brands the company produces. Adding all the brands to a business card can look sloppy, so arrange the logos in an organized manner to look professional.
Design the front of the business card with all necessary contact information. Place the main company logo on the front of the card.
Create a back side for the business card. The back side of the business card will display the multiple logos of your company's brands. Each logo should be roughly the same size, depending on the number of logos placed on the card. Place the logos in rows to look even. Similarly shaped logos, such as circles or squares, should be placed on the same row to remain balanced.
Find a printer online, such as Overnight Prints. Some printers offer the option to design business cards with their templates, or allow you to upload your own design. Upload the completed business card files to an online printer. Choose a glossy finish for the business card to give it a more professional look.
Approve the proof or make any needed corrections. Choose the number of business cards you want to order.
Use Adobe Photoshop or Adobe Illustrator to design your business cards. Many business card printers have online tools for you to type in contact information and upload logos. This is an option for people without access to design software.
