Rogan's Business Card

Using a word processor or graphics software to make your own business cards can be quite helpful when you have a small venture that doesn't require hundreds of business cards. The quality isn't the same as what you get if you actually had cards printed, however, it is considerably less expensive if you need less than a hundred cards.

For the trade show, you will be designing business cards to be displayed at your booth. A sample should also go in the appendix of your business plan.

Consider the following when designing your business card:
