  1. wow, i often visit business cards sites but most of this designs are new for me !!

    awesome! really ! Congratulation for creators and owners of this cards, and you for this collection here on Noupe !


  2. 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!

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

  4. 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.

  5. 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?!

  6. 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?

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

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

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

    I particularly like Lego and the bottle opener.

  13. 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???

  14. This is a great selection of some really creative and inspirational business card designs. Thanks for sharing this great list.

  15. Not to be rude, but all of these have been posted on 10 different blogs already. Stop the web design blog re-hash madness, please?

  16. 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…

  17. These are truly unique and innovative concepts in business cards designs. Enjoyed watching them.. I’m sure you compile and publish more of such kind.

  18. Liked all of them but if i had to choose one for my self then would go for Diesel Design Sober and all details

  19. Awesome collection! A abundant accompaniment commodity would account some printers/manufacturers area some of these absurd cards were made!

  20. I need new Businesscard. The Google Card is great! Thank you for the Collection

  21. We have a wealth of experience in creating high quality prints for the home and retail market and this is to get the wall art.

  22. All of them are marvelous and wonderfully creative! My favorite is the Google card. I’ll bet you could do one featuring the Google home page. I might have to try that…

  23. 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

    First time I visited today my AVG Antivirus identified it as a suspect site.

    Let me congratulate you on a wonderful compilation of innovative cards that inspire our imagination, and are a real credit their creators.

  25. Cool! The clip thing is what I liked most. It truly has the image for it and basing on its picture one could be captivated to choose this.

  26. Amazing set of creative business cards !
    I got many ideas for my card design from your post.
    Thank alot for sharing.

  27. 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.

  28. Great samples, I like the one with Google logo.

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