Honestly, like all design, rules are meant to be broken (except the rule that you should never stack text—never, ever stack text). So, these are only guidelines. If you create a beautiful design through a blatant disregard for any of these suggestions, I’d love to see it. Or, if you want to provide your own design, but want our designers to have a look at it and make some suggestions, don’t hesitate to contact us! In the end it’s your business, your card, and your design.
