Business cards contain information on it also important design and card stock as much as. But in Artist Business cards, information is being preferred than design and other stuff.
Your name. Your artist business card must show your name on it. If you use an alias to promote your art, make sure name on your business card is same as on your website and social media. Name should be the same that sign your work with at least relevant.
Contact information. A card is completely waste or pointless if it doesn’t say people how to reach you. A phone number and e-mail address show that you can continue conversation with anyone who is interested in your work.
Website. Your card should also have printed your website on it, or places where your work can be online viewed. You should not try ever to print your whole catalog on business cards. Turn your business cards into catalog and put the website on your business cards, so the people get the things that there is more to see and showing how to watch it.
Artist. You do not need to print a word ‘Artist’ but your business cards should clearly express to people that you are. You can print one of art works as a background, include universal graphic icon, graphic design such as picture frame, camera, paint brush, chisel etc.
If you have different design of art it is useful to have two different designs based on the relevant use you are trying to promote.
