Any business card must have up-to-date contact information on it so recipients can reach you. Business cards must include your name, title, name of school, address, phone number, fax number, email address and hours you’re typically available.

The back of a business card should be utilized. Putting a little map on the back will help parents and school representatives such as county administrators and textbooks representatives find your school easily.

Lastly, when it comes to designing a business card, make sure the font is large and easy to read; add a graphic or two to jazz it up. The school logo (mascot) should be on your back to school business card and maybe your school slogan if you have one. Make your card as appealing as possible, so when you hand it people, they’ll want to keep it.

Many people like to put a face to a name, so it’s not unheard of to put your picture on your business card. It personalizes the card and makes the sometimes “mysterious” teacher or principal more “human” to the parent. If you do choose to put a picture of yourself on your card, be sure to select one in which you’re smiling and appear approachable and warm.
