Get someone else to do it - it's very difficult to remain objective when designing for yourself. Smile

Ensure your brand colours/fonts are used on the elements carefully, not to mention a carefully positioned logo. Do not over do it, if the eye has to translate too much information in a first glance, then it will get dismissed quickly.

Remember to leave a consistent margin all the way round, so that all the elements are not too close to the edge.

If you are designing it yourself, i would suggest photoshop and set the document resolution to 300 DPi minimum for the best printing results.

Some business card design tips: 1.) Keep it simple. 2.) Don't clutter your card with unnecessary details and images. 3.)Emphasize your logo. You can go to [removed] for more info if you decide to approach a professional printer for help.

Please play fair and make sure you familiarise yourself with the board's advertising rules.

For one thing, it's advisable to be as professional as you can in most cases, unlike how the question for this forum was posted. After all, some people might not "get" certain acronyms or contractions.

Subtlety and typography. A good logo if you have one.
