Few factors are to be considered when designing a name card. They are:

Above are the basic design principles to adhere that will not break Feng Shui concept. It also depends on the granularity of Feng Shui concept. It can even go down into names of the individual, company names and occupation position.
For now, we will do the basic explanation which suffice for the norms.
Name Card Colours
The main concept behind is the elements each colour represents where they do not clashes or deliberately designed to clashes/ control.
Colours selection can be based on the following:
- Individual Bazi
- Company Bazi
Quick recap of colour & their elements:
- Metal: White, Silver, Gold, Apricot
2. Wood: Green
3. Water: Black, Blue, Gray
4. Fire: Red, Purple
5. Earth: Yellow, Brown, Coffee
Control: Wood control Earth, Earth control Water, Water control Fire, Fire control Metal, Metal control Wood.
Enhance: Wood enhance Fire, Fire enhance Earth, Earth enhance Metal, Metal enhance Water, Water enhance Wood
In Feng Shui context, base colour represents the client and company’s external environment (external). The colours of the name card owner & company name (internal) represents how they will interact with this client and its external environment.
Option 1. Colours selected for internal has to control external. Example. Names are in red against white (represents IT industry & metal elements) background for the name card.
Option 2. Colours selected for external has to enhance internal. Example. Yellow (represent property & earth element) background will go with white font for the names.
Name Card Positioning

Normally, name & position will be placed at the card center. In Feng Shui context, this translates in-charge of all business aspects. If company name is position at top centre, in Feng Shui context, there is an opportunity for the company to showcase its capability.
Information display at both sides of the card
For front end, the general practice would be to display company name, name, position and contact information. The trick is what to place at the back of the card which often is left blank.
In Feng Shui, the back of the card mean the support the company has. If there is no information, it means there is no backup or support for this company. As such, people who has their name card designed using Feng Shui element will use the company vision, mission or company services printed on this side.
