Ideally, a name card should include the information of your name, your job or your position in the company, your contact number, and your e-mail.

The choice of colors are important for both the base or background color of the name card, other decorative elements, as well as the text of the name card. Everything should work well with each other, so preferably, find a color palette where the colors surely come out pleasant to the eyes. For the background color and text, make sure that they are of high contrast so that there won’t be difficulties in reading the content. For instance, white background which is a light color should have dark colored text so that everything can be seen.
