As a designer creating a good business card for yourself can be quite task. The need for a visually appealing business card design is greater than in other work fields. There are 2 steps to giving a business card, not only as a designer, but as a business individual in general. The first step, and most important is ensuring the business card is kept. The second step is, of course, getting the project.
Sharing a great looking business card with a partner can often make the difference between getting the job or not. Not to mention that most, let’s say ordinary business cards end up in the trash after awhile. An unusually creative card made out of metal, plastic or rubber can ensure you a permanent slot in that ever-growing pile of business cards of your potential business partners.
There is a growing trend of digitizing business cards through card scanners. Though there are some advantages to having the cards scanned such as the space gained and ease of search, the lasting impression of receiving an appealing and unusually creative business card cannot be matched.
Feeling the unusual shape, the embossed metal or letterpressed paper will certainly help gain you the appreciation and respect needed to start or cement a good business partnership. So take a look at the showcase we have prepared of unusual business cards.
