My Metal Business Card Design Service - How It Works

You may be thinking, “I don’t know how to create a business card, let alone a metal business card design.” 

Let us help you! Our talented team of in-house graphic designers makes it EASY to make an instant impression with metal business cards tailored to you, your brand, and your needs.  

Business cards that combine a high-end design with quality materials will rock your world and make the right impression, one that quickly turns prospects into clients. 

It just takes five easy steps to bring your metal business card design to life:

1. Brainstorm

Because there are so many options available, it’s easy to become overwhelmed at how to start. But you can start with the basics. 

Start with your logo. (If you don’t have one, we can help with custom logo design), company name, industry and brand colors. Think about what colors you want to use, and if you have a metal finish preference.

Here are a few examples that may help spark ideas for your own cards:

  • Logo: Clean and Modern
  • Colors: Black and Gray
  • Industry: Construction
  • Card Finish: Natural Stainless Steel
  • Card Features: Cutouts, One Color, Custom Shape

This client works in the construction field, and while the cards look cool, they also reinforce his brand by portraying a rugged image, one for a company that works with rock /gravel, big equipment, and heavy machinery. You might want to consider a similar design if you work in the construction industry.

  • Logo: Decorative Typeface
  • Colors: Black, Gold
  • Industry: Interior Design
  • Card Finish: Brushed Brass Finish
  • Card Features: Cutouts, One Color, Add-On Brushed Finish
Brass Finish Metal Card

An interior designer is at the top of the list when it comes to needing a high-end business card design, and these cards fit that brief. With just a bit of fun from the playful cutout pattern, this metal business cards design has the personality this client needs to stand out and rock an interview with potential clients.

  • Colors: Black, White, Blue
  • Industry: Real Estate

Before your clients place a bid on their dream home, a real estate agent essentially must bid for their business as a client. This client’s business card design is efficient and professional, just like the services they provide to their satisfied clients. 

2. Place Your Order

To get started with your own business card design proof, the first step is to place your order. Even if you’re not quite sure of the design yet, this is the first step.

Choose one of these three options to get started with your order (elaborated on further below):

  1. Order Cards + Card Design Service Add-on
  2. Metal Business Card Standalone Design Service
  3. All-Inclusive Package Options

Let’s take a look at each option in detail!

Option 1: Order Cards + Card Design Service Add-on

If you know exactly what you want, but just need our help bringing your metal business cards design to life, this is the option for you.  Start by visiting our Metal Business Cards page to view all the finishes available for your cards.

Once you have decided on a finish, the product builder will allow you to:

  • Select the quantity of cards you want to order
  • Include add-on design services
  • Provide additional information via the notes option
  • Select additional premium add-ons to take your cards to the next level, including additional colors, backings, metal finishes and more 

When the card builder reflects what you want for your metal business cards design, press the “add to cart” button and complete the check-out process.

Option 2: Metal Business Card Standalone Design Service

If you know you want metal cards but are torn between finishes or want to see the design before committing to a full order, this is the best route for creating your new high-end business card design.

Once on the Business Card Design Service page, you’’ complete the process by providing:

  • Any content you want used, such as uploading an existing logo
  • Design direction notes if you have any ideas in mind. 

Once we receive this, we will work with you to make sure your metal business cards design is exactly to your liking. You can expect your designer to reach out to you with a few design-related questions to help with the initial proofing process. This can include:

What style of card best fits your desired design look?

Other design questions you may be asked include:

  • Should the card have cutouts?
  • Should the cards have a softer or harder design feel?
  • Do you have a color preference or specific colors you use in your existing branding?
  • Do you have a font preference?  

Your answers to these questions will help our graphic designer create exactly the right kind of design for you and your business. 

Once the product builder best reflects your initial vision for your metal business cards design, press the “add to cart” button and complete the check-out process.
