People tend to use non self serif fonts making it difficult to read the business card because the typography tends be close together and hard to read, but are used because it gives a more classy professional look but it’s not worth missing out on landing potential clients simply for the fact they could not understand your typography.

Don’t use comprehensive words

When creating a business cards people tend to use comprehensive vocabulary in order to be portrayed as an professional in the hope to impress potential clients, but not all clients you work alongside will come from a well educated background. Use words within your business cards that not only people from well educated backgrounds will be capable of understanding as this will lose fewer potential customers.
