So, draw a text box in the frame and enter your information such as name, designation, company name, contact number, fax number, website and email address. After entering the information, make changes on the name especially to its size, font and color to make it stand out of the rest. Similarly, work on the designation with the preferred fonts.
You can create separate text boxes for the contact numbers and email address. It is not mandatory, but another option that is available. Having them in separate text boxes will help to alter the information precisely.

Print the designs on to the business card paper.
