Craft Business Card Design for your Micro-business

Crochet Business Cards


Lately, I’ve been immersing myself in the creative process of designing my new set of business cards.

For an aspiring artist and crochet enthusiast like me, these little cards are more than just a means of sharing contact information; they’re a canvas for inspiration and a reflection of my craft.


Simple Design

When it comes to crochet business cards, my aim is clear: to keep the design simple and uphold good design practices.

Simplicity is key because it echoes the elegance and minimalism found in crochet itself.

The act of crocheting is an art form that relies on simple, repetitive stitches to create intricate and beautiful patterns.

In the same vein, my business cards will be a testament to the beauty of simplicity.

These business cards are more than a formality; they’re an extension of my passion and a means to connect with fellow artists and enthusiasts.

They will carry a piece of me, my love for color, and the simplicity that makes crochet such a captivating art form.

Meditative Art

The design process itself is a meditative art, much like crocheting.

It’s a journey of trial and error, of experimenting with different combinations until I find the one that resonates with my vision.

Much like crafting a crochet piece, it’s about patience, attention to detail, and a genuine love for the process.


Incorporating good design practices is not just a formality; it’s a way to ensure that my cards convey the essence of my craft effectively.

Here’s how I plan to do it:

Color Palette

As a lover of color, I understand that the right colors can evoke emotion and capture attention.

I’ll choose a color palette that resonates with my artistic style, possibly drawing inspiration from the vibrant shades of yarn in my crochet projects.



The choice of fonts can make a significant difference.

I’ll select fonts that are not only legible but also harmonize with the overall design.

This way, my cards will be a visual extension of my crochet artistry.


Texture and Finish

Texture can play a vital role in making the cards memorable. I

might explore options like textured paper or finishes that mimic the feel of crochet stitches.

These tactile elements can add an extra layer of depth to the design.


Information Layout

While the front of the card will feature the creative design elements, the back will be organized with essential contact information.

This balance ensures that the cards remain functional while showcasing my artistic flair.

Brand Fonts

I love the Helvetica neue font so that’s my choice.

It can be bold or super thin and always looks fresh.

Brand Color

My only colours are red for the rose and black. Choosing only two colours keeps the printing costs down.

White Space

Having “white space”  (the gaps between the logo and the words) makes it easy to read.

The four elements in my new business card are:

  • Logo top centre
  • My name in capitals in the middle
  • My website address
  • My tagline

These four elements are really all that is needed.


What Not To Have

Phone Number

You don’t need a phone number no one phones anymore, and if they want to contact me they can Tweet or email from the information on the website contact page.

I’ve had experience in other online business where people call me on the phone at 6am on a Sunday, like they were my friend, but I’ve never met them.

Be wary of too much information. If I do give my card to a customer I may handwrite my phone number on the back if they insist.

First Draft

So it will look like this:




Creative Crochet Design



Just as a signature crochet piece might feature a unique motif or pattern, my business cards will incorporate a logo or symbol that represents my brand.

This symbol will be a visual anchor, instantly connecting my cards to my crochet identity.


The Red rose of Lancashire

I got the logo I am using sorted out earlier in the month, it is the red rose of Lancashire.

There is a story behind this choice as well all about how I chose the name Old English Creations way back.

Lancashire in Merry Olde England is my home county, and some days I feel old as well.


Lancashire rose

I am creative every day of my life and I wake-up in the morning with ideas and inspiration for crochet patterns, writing projects or craft, gardening or cooking recipes I plan to make.


Keeping in mind the environment and my commitment to mindful living, I’ll explore eco-friendly printing options for my cards.

Sustainability is a part of my ethos, and it will be reflected in my choice of materials.

Going Forward

So, as I continue to shape the design of my crochet business cards, I do it with the same care and dedication I put into every crochet project.

They’re a testament to the artistic journey I’ve embarked on, and I’m excited to see how they will represent my craft and connect me with a world of fellow creatives.
