What you absolutely cannot miss on a business trip or in a meeting is undoubtedly the business card. Fortunately, thanks to the many applications on digital stores, such as the App Store and Google Play Store, you can create and request the printing of business cards from the comfort of your home and, above all, in a personalized way. For this reason, today we are going to list the best ones currently available, obviously to download for free on iOS and Android.
The best apps for creating business cards on iOS and Android
Generally, all the options for creating business cards turn out to be incorporated within more general applications dedicated to documenting management. However, at least on Android, there is a platform designed exclusively for generating business cards. But let’s go in order and start with a universal app for iOS and Android.
When you want to create flyers, posters, promotional videos, and, indeed, even business cards, we recommend Canva first of all. It’s a free service in its basic version, but available online, on the App Store, and also on the Google Play Store.
Specifically, to start generating a business card, simply log in using a (free) account and then reach the section dedicated to the creation of business cards, within the “Marketing” tab of the home screen.
Once in the editing section, you’ll be able to select all the visual elements already included in Canva‘s catalog, or import logos and images directly from your device. There will also be lots of different fonts and styles, very useful to make your business card unique. Besides, the service will offer you not only to save the created design locally but also to print a series of cards directly within the same platform.
If you have an Android smartphone, we recommend you to try Business Card Maker & Creator, entirely developed with the intent to help you create your own business card. Just like on Canva in fact, there will be plenty of different visual elements, but also the useful option to manually import personal logos and images. All the cards you create will then be generated with the perfect size to be printed.
Not to be underestimated is the presence of more than 100 ready-made templates to choose from, all of them obviously editable once selected. In short, a lot of functions included and made available for free. However, to have full access, you’ll have to make in-app purchases.
Other business card maker apps on iOS and Android
As mentioned above, within the apps developed for document management, there are usually also several templates dedicated to the creation of business cards. Among all of them, for example, we point out Word from Microsoft, for iOS and Android, or Pages, exclusive to iOS. Immediately after opening these applications, you’ll be able to select the style designed for business cards, within which will appear about 8 cards per page, obviously with the correct size for cutting.
Another exclusive for Android is Business Card Maker, also free (basic version) and downloadable directly from the Google Play Store. Among its options: choice of pre-set templates, importing items from your device, sharing cards via social networks, and optimizing them for printing.
If, on the other hand, you simply want to scan paper business cards, we offer some handy apps available for free for both iOS and Android. In particular, we recommend Microsoft Lens (Android and iOS), SwiftScan (Android and iOS), and Genius Scan (Android and iOS).
