  12. jaquelin says:

    “I wonder what the stats are on innovative designs versus plain two side printed cards are.”

    If it doesn’t fit in my business card holder then: a) It isn’t really a business card, and b) It goes directly into the trash, no matter how “innovative.”

    The model airplane one above fits the bill AND is cool. The cassette gets runner-up.

  44. Gareth says:

    There are some great business card design examples here. Business cards are very easy to get wrong for companies as there are so many cheap online companies offering ‘quick’ designs based on templates, and these never look good. Time should be taken both in the design, and the choosing of the paper stock.

    Interesting. I’m more into making tiny books with inspirational messages. I use lots of glitter and make the cutest covers.

  78. yo says:

    sweet stuff!

  79. James says:

    Very interesting blog – I’ve been searching all night to find a creative supplier but no luck yet :-(

  80. Thanks for the post. What do you all think of the future of blogging? I have been reading a lot about google’s attempt to gain preferential treatment for its site from internet providers. This will result in their sites being faster than sites owned by individuals and/or smaller comapnies. It’s my beleif that if google is able to succeed there will be far less websites out there and therefore far less blogging.

  81. Bingo says:

    Yeah… it’s new way to show your business, how much creative you are. I really like some of the business cards in above mention designs.

  82. This is truly innovative and insightful information- thanks a lot for the post.

  83. Slick cards,

    I really like the pop out cards that either turn out a guy or make their own stand, I really like the one with open cut square.

    As far as the plastic clear cards, we print and sell those at my companies site, plasticprinters.com

  84. exinco says:

    so any source code for this design? at least layout format.

  85. Matt says:

    I found this interesting article on how to get rid of old unwanted business cards. Using a simple card folding technique you are able to make a cubes using six cards.

    2400 business cards, no glue and a lunchtime or two?:


  86. hmm nice selection ! ;-) do u think that mine could deserve to appear in such a collection ? http://www.johnbrightman.com/business-card/
    hope to hear u soon ! ;-)

  87. Garden says:

    All pictures are beautiful.

  88. I think the actual size is nice.

  89. Another option is a service like TextID–a recently launched novel way to help people communicate with customers, colleagues and friends—WITHOUT paper. TextID allows users to purchase unique text “domains”, such as their names or businesses that allows them to pass along contact information and messages quickly and conveniently. They can give out their ID, lawn care or Angie for example, and the recipient texts that name to 555411. In just a few moments, they will receive a text back to their phones with contact information and the message the TextID member has chosen, which can also include a pdf file or brochure.

    Obviously the new service has a wide range of applications, from personal to commercial. Whether for realtors looking to get pricing and home information into a potential buyer’s hand while they are out looking for a home, a hip teacher providing up-to-date assignment and test information, a restaurant passing on weekly specials, a club promoter pushing the weekend band, or someone just looking to make the dating scene a bit easier, Text ID works great for a variety of users.

  90. What a nice theme. Hmm.. I like it very much. Thank you for sharing it free. Appreciate it.

  91. This blog Is very informative , I am really pleased to post my comment on this blog . It helped me with ocean of knowledge so I really belive you will do much better in the future . Good job web master .

  92. PaperDirect says:

    These are awesome card designs, however, purchasing these types of business cards are probably very expensive.

    For someone like me who has to have nice cards and watch my budget I’ve found some online business card printers to come in handy.

    http://www.paperdirect.com is a great resource for good quality business cards.

  93. Patricia says:

    Stunning designs, thanks for sharing

  94. Kathy says:

    I like the second one~! Cool

  95. cctv says:

    good inspiration !!

  96. This page is now included in our overview of Business Card Sizes: http://www.printernational.org/business-card-sizes.php

  97. Hi!

    I liked the business cards shown above in your pics. Thay were very unique and that makes them stand out in a crowded bulletin board and a conversation piece!

    Do people like super-high gloss cards for their business made from a photo and printed on a thickcard stock? The phoyo can be one of your own or a professional image taken by a pro.

    My friend handed me one of his business cards awhile back and i was instantly impressed with the class it had. NOT cheap cards. But I soon found out – (only because it was my close friend)

    I decided to partner with the company because they have a 100% feedback rating on an auction site and they are a very customer satisfaction driven company.

    Please visit this site for more information. (prices are not written in stone. I can make a better price if need be.


    Have an awesome night!

    Great topic is great.Business card is my dream I love it..

  100. WOW! These are amazing designs.Really superb business cards

  101. Dante Paner says:

    Wow…I love all the design..I appreciate it..designing one of them feels to be professional..its great whether you use a paper, wood or metal etc. as long as you put an art and your creativeness, makes different…!

  102. I love those business cards. They are great.
    I collect business cards.

  103. One of the best ways to explore business cards is to ask for samples from a printing firm. They will send you loads of designs through the post and free of charge.

  104. arismawan says:

    I also recently build an online business generator site. Some of the business template design are inspired from your site. here is the address: http://template-media.com/business-card … need your comments :).thanks

  105. Angie says:

    They’re all so unique. There should be more creative ones out there instead of the vanilla business cards. There are also other special effects that can help make business cards stand out. To get free samples, visit lettuceprint.com.

  106. Sydney says:

    I must recognize I am quite impressed with some Business Cards, specially I love the concept of “cat” and “actual”. Nice and usefull as well. Good work.

  107. Jimmy R. Plymouth Jr. Executive Director/CTA says:

    Stunning Cards….

    Can’t wit till I can make up my mind on which ones I like the best!

  108. sondra says:

    wow, those business cards look great. I wanted to pass along a new site that is up and running now for any small business owners looking to get 250 free cards.

    Take a peek!


  109. Steve S. says:

    All the cards look great, but the ones that stood out to me were the die cut ones. These are great to make but are pretty pricey. I think if a design is great you can print on the most expensive, or the cheapest paper and the business cards will still be impressive.

    Take the business cards at http://www.mind2print.com for example. They’re simple but effective, printed on high quality paper (not die cut).

    -Steve S.

  113. Tim Halberg says:

    nice… I have wanted to find something incredibly creative for myself… for a while I did the plastic card thing and that always stood out, but not enough…

  117. mysurface says:

    I like super capacity, it looks so stylish.

  118. Dave says:

    It appears that most of these individuals are in the design or creative profession. I feel that is important to create business cards like the ones above if you are in these professions so you stand out from the competition. If you’re a graphic designer, people expect you to be creative. If you hand them a dull and lifeless business card it reflects poorly on your ability as a designer.

    I do believe though that these kind of cards are only good for creative or artistic professions and wouldn’t be ideal for individuals in certain professions.

  119. Moses says:

    I made my business card with moo.com
    like those tiny things :D

  120. malawika says:

    I love The Actual Size. It’s the most original :)

  121. kamarul312 says:
