Show what you do with business card background images.
Since people hold on to creative business cards longer than plain ones, create a graphic design that speaks to what you do. If you run a bakery, you might use a cupcake or cookie pattern you created in Adobe Illustrator. If you’re an architect, you can add a segment of a blueprint to your background. With Illustrator, you can combine simple shapes into something unique or draw vector graphics freehand, and then scale them to the right size to fit onto your cards.
For inspiration, explore dozens of business card background examples on Behance. See how designers play with color and try everything from plain black and white to abstract backgrounds with subtle watercolor brushstrokes or swirling rainbows of paint. Notice the varieties of texture, geometric and organic shapes, professional headshots, and stock photos that can help a business card draw attention.
