huge readers’ base already!

Took me time to read all the comments, but I really enjoyed the article. It proved to be Very helpful to me and I am sure to all the commenter here ! It’s always nice when you can not only be informed, but also entertained ! I’m sure you had fun writing this article.’

What i don’t understood is actually how you are not actually much more well-liked than you might be now. You are so intelligent. You realize therefore significantly relating to this subject, made me personally consider it from a lot of varied angles. Its like men and women aren’t fascinated unless it’s one thing to do with Lady gaga! Your own stuffs outstanding. Always maintain it up!

Great inspiration! I really enjoyed the creative uses of paper, typography, and die cuts. I really enjoyed Harold Lee Miller’s photography business card. It seemed retro, yet had a camera die cut. I also loved the How’s my designing card’s use of paper and perforated edge for comments! Very creative. Thanks for the inspiration.

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.

Great post!
The Harold Miller and Watermelon sugar business cards are really nice looking. I really like them a lot.
These designers who made these are really talented.
I got a collection of really awesome business cards on my site too. Take a look at it some time! 🙂

the designs on the business cards are amazing. the sad part is that people don’t like to pay and they don’t realize that the business card is going to be doing the advertising for them in someones wallet. but on the other hand, i love the designs 🙂

Interesting. I’m more into making tiny books with inspirational messages. I use lots of glitter and make the cutest covers. Some have two cats in love with little hearts hanging on top of their heads. Others I have a big round moon with a dog howling. Some have butterflies with glitter and so on…

Thanks for giving me such type of information which is useful for my knowledge.I think now a days plastic card is too necessary for our business to improve business areas.

Pretty cool post. I just stumbled upon your blog and wanted to say
that I have really liked reading your blog posts. Anyway
I’ll be subscribing to your blog and I hope you post again soon!

Just came across your post. I found it informative for me and I’m sure many others. I did also have small trouble subscribing to the blog but figured it out; I’m still a 2-finger typist 🙂 . Thank you and keep your blogging spirit going strong.

These are impressive designs. I’ve found another that’s been very effective for me. It’s everything we look for; it’s alluring, it’s seductive, it’s persuasive. Check it out at I hope your results are as good as mine.

I love seeing all the different creative business card designs people come up with. My favorites in this post are the ones from Promptt, In Watermelon Sugar, and Thielen Designs. Now if there were only some cool templates out there for making them… Thanks for sharing!!

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.

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,

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.

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…!

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

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 for example. They’re simple but effective, printed on high quality paper (not die cut).

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…

I like the pop-up card idea… (I’ve always wanted a card that was more three dimentional rather than just flat…)

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.
