Looking to upgrade your business cards to something cutting edge? Is it your first time printing business cards and your feeling a little lost when it comes to the design? The best way to find a design, that is visually pleasing and professional, is to look at what the current design trends are. In this blog, we have picked out some of your favourite 2018 trends that will get you inspired.

Painted Edges

A little bit of colour or metallic on the edges will give your business card a little more depth and sophistication. It shows a level of care and attention to detail that will leave a good impression.

Interactive designs

Having an interactive element to your business card makes it more memorable. Your card could fold into a box, be a puzzle, have a window, or a sliding piece. Just make sure that it is relevant, you don’t want the interactive element doesn’t overshadow your business.

Oversized Typeface

Large text with a thin sleek typeface will fill the space on your business card, with a bold and clear message, while still appearing minimalist. It could be your name, the name of the company or a tagline that sums up your business.

Geometric designs

Simple geometric designs are still on trend this year. Symmetry, a perfect circle or a well-spaced offbeat triangle is easy on the eyes. It also screams professionalism and innovation.

Shaped cards

A business card cut into a shape is more memorable than your run of the mill rectangle. For example, if you are a mechanic you can have your card printed in the shape of a spanner.


A business card that mirrors design elements from the company as a whole will take you far. This goes beyond having your logo on everything. For example, if your website design uses a lot of blues then you should use a splash of blue on your business card. This will show a professional level of attention to detail and that you are a well-established business.
