How to customize your digital business card with premium features

Make more digital business cards

With your premium account, you unlocked the ability to make more digital business cards. Just hit the plus sign on the cards page to make new cards for all of the hats you wear. From friends to networking connections, play-dates, dogs, and your side hustle, every part of your life can have a business card customized for each interaction.  

How to set custom colors on your business card

With any premium account, you can customize the colors on your digital business cards. Whether using the mobile or web app, select the card you want to customize and select Edit. In Edit mode, select Display; you should see a row of colors to choose from. To set a custom color, select the color wheel and either choose a color, use the color matching tool, or enter specific RGB, HSL, or HEX values.

Here is a breakdown of the different color components:

1. Primary color - The primary color is the main color of your card design and is visible on the design elements like the wave and icons. It also appears on any hashtags or @mentions. 

2. Secondary color - The secondary color is visible on any buttons. For example, the “SAVE CONTACT” button would be in the secondary color.

3. Primary accent - The primary accent is visible on the symbols inside the icons.

4. Secondary accent - The secondary accent is visible on any text inside any buttons. For example, the words “Save Contact” would be in the secondary accent.

Once you set your colors, your card preview will automatically update. On mobile, tap Preview at the top of your screen to see what your card looks like.
