Is it OK to use a smaller font size for credentials that come after someone’s name on a business card?

I am designing new business cards for employees and many of them have several credentials after their name. To make them all “fit” do I bring the entire name and credential line down a point or can I just make the credentials a point smaller? Is there a rule to this?


In many cases it’s more aesthetically pleasing to have credentials slightly smaller than the name.

I don’t know if there’s a “rule” about it. However, in almost every business card I’ve ever designed credentials are slightly smaller than the name.
