At 3.5" x 2", a business card may be small in size, but they still have a large impact. Although cell phones can store contact information, the business card isn't going away any time soon, because it not only gives information, but image as well. It can convey whether your church is traditional or contemporary, contemplative or energetic, liturgical or progressive, and many other things.

Contact information can include:

  • Your name and title
  • Office phone number
  • Cell phone number
  • Email address
  • Street address
  • Church website

 

Many churches use their business cards to include additional information, including:

  • Service times and information
  • "You're Invited" text
  • A slogan or vision statement
  • Map and directions
  • Church Facebook address
  • Student ministry website
  • Pastor's LinkedIn

 

Printing prices are lower for full color printing than for one or two color printing, so your business cards can closely tie in to your website, bulletin, and other communications design. Consistency in design is a key element in good branding. Your communications will have a stronger impact and be more memorable if they coordinate. They will also give you and your church a more professional image if they look like they are well thought out.

Your logo, church website, bulletin, and business cards are foundational in branding your church. Church Logo Gallery offers design and branding services for churches. Give us a call at 888.831.6811 to see how we can help your church.
