3 Simple Steps to an Effective Business Card

 3 Simple Steps to an Effective Business Card

Admiral Design and Print are proud to unveil our new business card. Combining distinctive design with a tactile range of finishing techniques, here’s a handy step-by-step guide to achieving the perfect business card.


Step 1 - Dynamic Design

Admiral’s old business cards were looking a little tired. Our experienced design team added an eye-catching colour wheel on the front, to ensure a consistent brand with other items we had recently designed.

Contact details are displayed clearly, to ensure the business card effectively communicates key information.

On the reverse, details of our products have been added to maximise the opportunity to upsell to our customers and prospects. Additionally, handy symbols were added to effectively communicate our 3 key selling points: great service, creative ideas and fast turnaround.

Finally, a section was added to promote our online portfolio. Inviting customers to visit our website makes our business card more interactive and provides another opportunity to upsell one of our key services.


Step 2 – Stand out with full colour digital printing

Our business cards were printed in full colour on our digital press. This ensured the final print finish was very accurate, and guaranteed vibrant colours that complement the new design.

Digital printing also allowed us to be flexible and we tailored quantities for each member of the team, depending on their exact business card requirement.


Step 3 – Fantastic Finishing

Our new business card offers a handy showcase of the many finishing options we are able to offer here at Admiral.

Gloss & Matt Lamination

The business cards have gloss lamination on their front, and matt lamination on their back. This gives customers a tactile and interactive opportunity to understand the difference between the two lamination options.

The lamination compliments the business card’s vibrant design, and also conveys a first impression of quality.

Silver Foiling

Silver foiling was used to communicate our 3 key selling points: great service, creative ideas and fast turnaround.

This ensures these services stand out and become more memorable. Foiling can also be used to create a more premium feel for your business cards, allowing key information to stand out from the crowd.


Die-cutting was used to add rounded corners on our business card. This offers a unique and tactile finish, further helping the business card to stand out and remain memorable.
