Hello Friends, its been quite a few days since our last Photoshop Tutorial appeared on Designcrust. I was a bit busy with my Logo design projects. Since now i am back, we will see, how to design a premium business card in Photoshop. This Photoshop tutorial will teach you to design a beautiful business card in easy and simple steps with minimum effects and bring about a good looking design. This business card will look absolutely eye catchy when you print it. Don’t ever waste your time in looking for printing solutions you always have Uprinting at your services forever. Most of the business prefer it. Business cards, flyers, pamphlets, stickers, brochure printing services offered at UPrinting are affordable at your price. Why i have mentioned about printing here is because few days ago one of my friend wanted a business card to be printed, he gave it to an offline company, and the output was very bad. So i suggested him Uprinting, and he was very satisfied. When you give this business card out to your friends or business people they will be astonished by its simplicity.
OK friends let’s move on to the tutorial.

Step-1 Open a new document with width of 3.5 inches and height of 2 inches.
Step-2 Now fill the layer with the colour code # 724444. Apply any pattern overlay effect to this layer and set the opacity level to 50 percent.
Step-3 Now pick the rectangle tool from the tools palette and draw an horizontal rectangle shape at the top of the business card. Now double click on this shape layer to bring in the layer style window, and apply the following layer style effects. Here i have used GRADIENT OVERLAY and INNER GLOW effect. Once it is done, duplicate this layer, holding ALT and drag it at the bottom of the business card. This is how the image will look.
Step-4 Again here pick the rounded rectangle tool from the tools palette, at the top of the menu tab, set the radius to 5 pixels, and draw a shape as you see below. Once you have drawn this shape, double click on this shape layer to bring in the layer style window and apply the following layer style effects. Here i have used DROP SHADOW, INNER GLOW and GRADIENT OVERLAY effects. Once done applying the layer style effects, duplicate this shape layer and place it accordingly as i have done it here below. For the remaining two shapes you can give any gradient colours.
Step-5 Now using the elliptical tool, draw a small circle at the top left of the previous shape. Let the colour code of this shape be # 363535.
Step-6 Now double click on this layer to bring in the layer style window, apply the STROKE VALUE. See the image below. Now duplicate this circle shape and place it accordingly as i have done it here below. See the image.
Step-7 Again from the tools palette pick the rounded rectangle with the same values as before, draw a shape as you see below. Now double click on this layer, once the layer style window appears, apply the GRADIENT OVERLAY effect. See the image below. Once it is done, duplicate this shape and place it accordingly.
