5. Keep it Super Simple

Simple Social Media Icons on Business Card

Designed by Tamer Koseli for cisimdesign

Simple often works best. This card uses clean lines and icons only to match the minimalist design and logo. It’s not over-crowded with text, but still clearly indicates which social media platforms to use for contact.

6. Give People What They Know

We’re all familiar with the logos of the biggest social media channels. This design retains the branded colors of the social networks so recipients can instantly figure out which platform each handle is for.

7. Make it Purely Social

9. Pick Your Social Channels Wisely

Minimal Social Media Icons

Sometimes there is only one social media channel that you use. A great way to highlight important contact information is with a simple, clean design.

10. Keep it Colorful

Colorful Social Media Icons on Business Card

This design utilizes multiple colors, but retains the brand image. Each icon is differentiated by a color that matches the logo, instead of their typical colors.

This keeps the design consistent while also making sure the social media icons are recognizable to the recipient.

Get Social With Your Business Cards

We’ve spoken before about the key things you need to consider when designing your business card and why we believe that if you haven’t added your social media handles on them, you might be missing out on the opportunity to get an extra source of traffic and visibility.
