PSD Tutorial: Design a Dirty Business card

Business card is a great way to express their brand and especially every designer or client must have. The clients always look out the professionalism in you and later the cost, like that! The way you make your business card will stand out from the crowd. To make biz cards we have to follow very few guidelines, and apart from that not stick to the same fact or style. Its creative means you can show creative in your own way, i fed up with the default white card with your name and your details and nothing else- it really frustrating. Even some companies follow or say stick to their fact- funny!
Today we are going to create a simple business card with texture applying on it. As i always shout “break the rules”. But the basic guidelines should be kept for printing and user-friendly to the print media and client.

Basic Requirements! :

1. Company name (optional).
2. Your name.
3. Your title.(status)[ graphic design, illustrator.. etc]
4. Phone number (mobile number in case you are freelancer).
5. Your e-mail address (never use a free service) but most of them don’t have own site/domain email
6. mailing address(optional) [ i won’t do that ]

Tutorial :

Final Output:

Step:1 Create a document in Photoshop and give these settings

– Mode: CYMK (for printing)
– Width: 3.5 inches X height : 2 inches
– Resolution : 300 ( for better quality )

After Rotating the both text lace it in the left corner of the card. But it should not exceed above the guide line.

Step:4 Add basic details to the business card.

In the right side, type your name. With the brandish font. And below that add the following details in Calibri font.
Print-web-icon
your site name/company site name
your email address
Contact number
Note: i used the brandish font for my name to highlight them. Other basic details are in 11-12 size and it’s optional.
We are almost done.

Step: 5 Add texture to the business card

We have writer we used paper texture from SXC.hu- i usually get textures from there. See the standard restrictions on the image.
Download link: . Now open the image in Photoshop and copy to our business card psd, above all the layer.
apply the texture in photoshop
Now change the layer mode to MULTIPLY and opacity = 83% and fill = 42%.
Note: as we mention you always play with the layer mode and you get more unique effect
