    Though there’s a lot of brilliant ideas, but in my opinion the rubber band is the greatest.

    Best collection of biz card designs I’ve seen. Thanks!

  • DavidMoreen, 20 August 2009

    Some great business cards. I don’t believe that I would ever use any of the tough. I like sticking to the little piece of paper!

    beautiful :)

    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.

  • Callum Chapman, 20 August 2009

    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?!

  •, 20 August 2009

    very good,I’m first time to see,Thanks

  • PV, 20 August 2009

    Google and the Diesel Design is really good. Thanks for sharing.

    An amazing source of inspiration

  • Chris, 20 August 2009

    Great selection of cards you have collected here! I especially like the Google card :)

  • Ivan Miši?, 20 August 2009

    Excelent colection

  • Michael, 20 August 2009

    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?

  • Trudy, 20 August 2009

    These are so strange and cool. The Google search one might be my favorite though.

  • Oliver Web, 20 August 2009

    Great collection of business cards. Loads of great designs and the Google one is my favourite. Thanks for sharing.

  • Nora Reed, 20 August 2009

    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.

  • Colette Mason, 20 August 2009

    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.

  • tabiji, 20 August 2009

    I don’t remember his name, but someone put their resume inside a Spam box.

  • Driveways, 20 August 2009

    lots of interesting and innovative ideas with this collection

  • Paul Mackenzie Ross, 20 August 2009

    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.

  • Larissa, 20 August 2009

    Interesting collection. It’s always fun to see what creative ways people promote themselves. Another great collection of business cards:

  • Timur Tchekhin, 20 August 2009

  • hendri, 21 August 2009

    what a great business card!

  • Mark, 22 August 2009

    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.

  • steve, 22 August 2009

    these are fantastic

  • Webme1, 22 August 2009

    I love this collection of business cards. A huge variety. Very inspiring.

    I particularly like Lego and the bottle opener.

  • Bart Starr, 22 August 2009

    What kind of place prints these designs? I’m looking to print up a great design of my own, but have not found a printer company that does this kind of stuff???

  • MLDina, 22 August 2009

    There are some really creative concepts here. I love the cards that are equally functional and fun.

  • Bendesign, 22 August 2009

    Some of these cards must cost a fortune to make!

  • figasia, 26 August 2009

    food for thought. thanks for the list, delicious!

  • Tim Mustoe, 26 August 2009

    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…

    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 for seo trends

  • Robert Rogers, 05 June 2012

    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.

  • Rafael Montilla, 05 June 2012

    Great samples, I like the one with Google logo.

    you should put a list of companies where to print them.

  • Laura Brentley, 16 August 2012
