50 Awesome And Creative Business Cards

Posted in Inspiration6 years ago • Written by 47 Comments

title-l

Business cards are cards representing company or individual bearing business information like company’s or individual’s name,  address, e-mail, telephone number etc. Usually business cards are simple – black text on white background – including just main information and company’s logotype, but there are many other creative business cards standing out and really taking attention. I took a special interest in these kind of business cards, so here is my list about the most awesome and creative business cards, I’ve ever seen.

    These are some excellent cards. Sometimes back I also did a creative card design series. It was great success too but the cards in this blog are really really creative.

    Congrats for finding and posting such high quality and Out of the box Business Cards.

    I like the Magic Support card and Victor Konovalov’s velvet cards.

    The ‘baggage tags’ in 47 are nicely done; I’ve seen this done before, but, for the company using them, it wasn’t fitting – they have nothing to do with travel!

    @CoolProducts – I am little amazed from those ideas, just many of them are difficult to create from technical view. You are right about discrediting I guess, but I think that examples here are great – because their business cards are tied with sphere.

    Zac – actually good question, but for example for metal business cards are special company, who does it, so I think there just need to search for typography company, who offers such services.

    In Flanders it’s a bit difficult to find a printing office that’s capable for these kind of prints. When we need to create special printwork we search for a printing office in France.

    I agree, most of the business cards do look good: creative and professional. But: from my point of view, the real art is to make a business card with an original design and a professional look, and all that for an affordable price. Just printing in color makes it so much more expensive, and then I’m not even talking about a shiny design of things that can be folded or anything like that. First impressions are important, but how much should you be willing to invest in a business card that just as well might end up with “thousands” of others in someone’s wallet?

    I don’ think that I could personally afford some of these cards, not sure how much it would cost to print and have all the special effects and materials.

    I love the lawyer one..divorce
    that is a classic
    probably not too expensive to print, and represents what the business does

    #31 is my favorite… it reminds me of red velvet cake. I also like the translucent ones. Great collection!

    These are some excellent cards. Sometimes back I also did a creative card design series. It was great success too but the cards in this blog are really really creative.

    Congrats for finding and posting such high quality and Out of the box Business Cards.
