What Should My Business Card Say?

A business card is a simple way to let people know what you do and how to contact you. As a minimum it should state:

  • your name;
  • your job title;
  • ways to contact you (for example, telephone number, email, website, business address).
 

You can put other information on there if it’s relevant and helps to set you apart. Things like:

  • what sector you work in (for example, bridal, editorial, film and television);
  • any speciality or a particular skill you are known for (like airbrushing or camouflage);
  • or geographical location that you cover (useful for private client work like weddings).
 

It’s a tool to sell yourself, so make it memorablepersuasive and engaging to the recipient, but don’t overcrowd a card with lots of details. For detail, use brochures, social media or a website to expand on information.

Tips to Create the Right Impression

  • Consider the image used. Is it appropriate to what you do and professional?
  • Use a layout and font that is clear and draws people in to wanting to read your card – make it engaging and memorable.
  • Your business email address should be professional. For example sexxylexxy69@hotmail.com conveys “professional” all right, just not in makeup!
  • Don’t overstate your job title. For example, don’t call yourself a “designer” when you’re fresh out of college. Likewise, don’t call yourself a “hair artist” when you’ve only done two weeks at makeup school twiddling a few strands. People will notice!
  • You may need different cards for the different sectors that you work in to convey the relevant information and right image to each type of prospective client and employer.

Where to Get Business Cards Printed

There are three main options – a print shop, online stores and DIY.

  • Any local printer shop should be able to help – local directories or an internet search should find you a list of your local printing shops.
  • For online options, there are several printing websites that provide ready-made design options. Alternatively, you can upload your own design and create your own unique card. Even ready-made designs can be customised with your details, and some offer colour options, so you can still make it unique to you.
 

The designs shown above came from Zazzle, which seemed to have the most specifically designed business cards for makeup artists. There is also VistaPrint and Moo that we know of that do business cards for makeup artists. Many places often have deals on, so it’s worth checking them all.

Whatever method you use, be sure to double check your card template before you hit the “go to print” button. Spelling and layout are important!
