Vectr is ideal for users without access to more mainstream design software’s, or with minimal training in creative design. Because it’s free to use, built with a simple interface, and accessible on your browser, Vectr is your best option for building your cards.
With this step-by-step guide, we’ll show you how to build a basic business card using Vectr.
Step 1: Start your project
Click “New Artwork”, the green button on the top left of the screen. This will open a new popup window.
Step 2: Select a canvas
In the new popup window, click on “Print”. A business-card-sized canvas is available as a preset. Otherwise, you can manually change the size. A standard business card is 3.5 inches wide by 2 inches tall.
Step 3: Add text
It’s recommended that you include the following information:
- Your full name
- Phone number
The text size, font, and colors can be changes on the right-side toolbar.
Step 4: Leave margins
Leaving text too close to the edges of the page present two issues:
- It may make the text look awkward.
- It may be difficult to read.
- The text is at risk of getting cut off when we cut the business cards to size.
Step 5: Export Your File
Click the top-facing arrow on the top righthand side of the screen.
From here, you can choose the file format you wish to save your file as. If you’re sending the file to us for print, we prefer .svg files, but you have other formatting options if needed.
Congratulations! If you’ve followed the steps correctly, you should now have visually striking business card! To design business cards using Vectr is very easy and best of all, it’s free to use!
