Brother has created a free way for anyone to design professional business cards, mailers, calenders, posters, and much more by editing templates provided in their CreativeCenter.
If you can point and click you can create beautiful marketing materials. Print them out on your own printer or save them as a PDF file. Easily upload and use your own photos to make them even more special.
Even if you have no graphics skills to create marketing materials,
you can make beautiful documents like the ones below.
This is an example of a mailing created for Deep Valley Farms CSA in Okmulgee, Oklahoma. [Note: all images below have been reduced in physical size and resolution for use in this blog post. What you create will be in high resolution suitable for printing.]
Tips for Creating Business Cards and Other Printed Materials:
Here are some quick tips to make what you create look beautiful:
- Stick to one font in 2-3 sizes for your text. Having many fonts takes away from a professional appearance.
- Choose three basic colors to use. Note in the images above they are green, beige, and white. In the image below they are black, gray and red.
- Photos, logos and other images are essential. Text only is boring!
You can prove these concepts to yourself. Take any stack of business cards or anything printed – or even web sites. Glance at them quickly and put them in two piles: like and don’t like. Then review your choices for the two points above. For a professional appearance, less is more.
