    Steiner

    Many business cards require a modern style to reinforce a modern image. Steiner provides an up-to-date feel, along with easy-to-read letterforms — an absolute necessity when sharing contact information. This sans serif font has a very smooth design. While the font does not include accented letters and symbols, it does have the characters necessary for the typical business card (letters, numbers and punctuation).

    Justus

    For a classic serif font, consider Justus. The typographer responsible for this typeface has made a full symbol set available, as well as a variety of bold and italic versions, in addition to the normal letters and numerals included in most free fonts. In addition to other desktop publishing techniques, you can easily vary the font weight to give the appearance of using multiple fonts, but still have a consistent appearance. While Justus offers a conservative look, the typeface is also clean and elegant.

    Myndraine

    Another sans serif font, Myndraine has a more utilitarian feel — with a few touches that make this font an attractive choice for business communications. The font is mostly complete, missing only a handful of symbols. The letterforms are sleek, offering a subtle sense of style not apparent in all sans serif fonts, along with the legibility necessary for a good business card.

    Imperator

    If you're looking for a serif font lighter than Justus, Imperator may be an ideal font. It too comes in a variety of weights and is a fairly complete typeface: it has letters, numerals, punctuation and a few symbols. The font itself creates a feeling of substance, but is adaptable — aspects that many professionals wish to associate with their businesses.
