60+ Unusual Business Card Ideas & Designs

August 20th, 2009

Most business cards tend to be forgotten, which is why they are not effective. Business cards can become great interactive elements with the added ability to have custom shapes, different materials and matte finishing along with a great design idea.

In today’s article, we would like to present a collection of 60+ Creative Business Cards ideas that say a lot about a person.

Hi – What a great collection of business cards.

Whilst some are impractical, I did like the Google search idea – really clever.

It’s bizarre I know – just how these things go sometimes but I spotted this on someone’s tweet and had a look. Even more bizarre is the fact that we’ve just launched a new product range of printable metal business cards.

You can see them here:

How spooky is that?

Thanks – Jonathan.

Good post but I’ve seen them all before…
What’s unusual about the Moo Business Cards? That holder up there ) is the free business card holder you get with the free (10) business cards you get… and you can’t see an actual business card?!

I would love to have custom LEGO people, or even just LEGO bricks, as business cards. Those are too cool. Wonder who could do printing on LEGO bricks?

It seems that posts about creative business cards never get old. There have been so many in the past, but they are all so good and there are always so many more creative ideas. Thanks for sharing the interesting collection. I look forward to more.

Some cracking examples there :)

I am in the process of coming up with some new cards for my company – this shows you you don’t have to be too dull and corporate about it – I’m not a “suit” so these really appealled to me.

Thanks for collating the list.

Nice collection of cards there, I’ve seen a few before but there are some fresh ones there. The Lego “business cards” made me smile but some of the “label” style cards, although creative, looked a bit scruffy.

Very imaginitive collection of cards. Quite a few really caught my eye. Some are not very practical but they do serve the purpose of catching a persons attention. I can imagine finding a printing/fabrication company that is capable of doing this kind of work would be difficult and expensive but I can see doing some for a tradeshow possibly.

some of these have been doing the rounds for a while, but they’re all interesting. I think some of them are a bit of a folly – massive production expense for something that in reality is impractical, but it all provides food for thought…

It is no surprise that most of the people that have used creativity in designing their business cards are the same people that are creative designers professionally. I wonder how many people actually use the cards that require some “assembly,” though.
