I created a misty, forest-themed business card template in Photoshop that I’m making available today as the first in a series of graphic design giveaways for yoga teachers, designers, and anyone else who will put my designs to good use. My intention is to start giving back to the communities that have supported my growth as a designer (and person). I’ve used countless stock images, Photoshop brushes, fonts, and design tips from design websites that I figured it’s time to start creating some useful giveaways as a way to say thanks.
The design uses texture, soft colors, and strong typography to create a simple, elegant, and natural feel for a business card that is suitable for yoga teachers, artists, or anyone who feels that the design works for their business. I’ve used some layer styles (and less than 100% Fill) on the type to create the letterpress-type effect that you may or may not be getting sick of right now. There is a lot of attention to detail and I’m sure the cards will look great up close and personal.
The template is an organized, labeled, and fully layered PSD that is ready for print. It includes appropriate guides for bleeds and text-safe zone, and is in CMYK color mode at 300dpi resolution. Each layer is labeled appropriately and grouped to make editing quick and painless.
