The Coolest Business Cards - Beautiful & Unique Business Card Designs Part 4

This is the 4th part of our Coolest Business Card series. This time, we are including the printer (when we can find out the information) who printed these business cards. We received many responses from graphic designers wishing to know how to get similar business cards printed since many of the business cards displayed have complicated folds, cuts, etc. I hope that you enjoy the next set of ‘cool business cards’. Feel free to submit your own.

Viewzi Cool Transparent Plastic Business Card

This is a business card created for Viewzi. Change the way that you look at business cards with this unique business card design. This card was printed by Marketing Systems.

Business Card for Graphic Designer Made from Pantone Cards

This business card for AIGA Knoxville might be my favorite. Pantone cards are an every day item in a graphic designer’s life, so using old pantone cards for your business cards is brilliant. It would be really easy for any of you to utilize this idea. Just print out your info on a sticker (in a well designed fashion like AIGA Knoxville did) and stick it on your old pantone cards.

Dolce Press Letterpress Business Cards

Dolce Press prints out beautiful business cards with the letterpress process. These three cards are all unique in their own way. The first card was designed by Cara Kleid (left). This beautiful 2 color card emphasizes how to combine illustration with a creative font layout and the very cool letterpress printing process. The second card (center) we designed and printed for Tina Chang who wanted an elegant card with a flair so, Dole Press decided to do a subtle background in transparent white so the card wasn’t overpowered with color. The last card (right) was again printed by Dolce Press but designed by David Caso. It was printed, scored, and folded.

Business Cards for Emerson Taymor

Isn’t this the coolest business card? This is a photograph of the “unopened” business card front and back. Now look at what it looks like opened. :) Emerson says that he got these printed at printingforless.com.

Stand Up Business Card for Emerson Taymor

Emerson Taymor had these business cards printout as a diecut out with the bottom of the card being scored. This allows the cardholder to pop Emerson’s body out and form a standup doll of him. This is such a unique idea for a business card. He should also have different clothes to put on him, such as a ballerina tutu and a tuxedo (come on girls, you remember playing with paper dolls when you were little girls). :) The information for this is 4/1 - 3.5″ x 2″ - Custom Die (around the silhouette of Emerson’s body, scored on the bottom edge) allowing a standup doll - 120lb - Matte Coating.

envelope and badge business card design

I know that it is hard to believe but this is a business card for Ed McCulloch. It looks more like an envelope and bage, but in fact it is a mini manila envolope with a badge inside. I am sure that this business card knocks the socks off of everybody who receives it. Ed is an amazing photographer and he successfully shows his creativity with this business card design. This business card was designed by Eric Kass and printed by Anne Benjamin.

A business card for a lawyer on a condom

I busted out laughing when I saw this business card which is for a divorce mediator. It is a business card that opens up to ungift a condom and a lot of Kama Sutra type images within. Lawyers aren’t allowed to advertise so in order to promote themselves, these business cards were created and left at the front desk of motels (where many people tend to have affairs). Read more about this business card here.

Business Cards for Illustrator Paula Birdy

This is a business card for Paula Gibbs’ online shop. The rounded corners, font usage, and illustration together create an elegant business card.

David uses his business card as a stencil on his original photos, like a signature.This business card is printed on white Plike 330gr paper, with a black printed back (0+1).

Coolest Business Card in Booklet Style

I found a business card printing company, Shinebox Print, that allows you to print your business cards in mini booklet style. How unique is this? This ultra-hip advertising agency designed two different covers to distinguish between its two locations. I thought that this was a really cool design.

4 business cards with stickers - cool design

All 4 of the business cards were created by 3 Advertising Agency. You can read more about their business cards and other identity items here. All of these letter pressed cards were printed by Pete McCracken at Crack Press. Some of our other cards were silk screened by a local printer. All or most all of 3 Advertisingn Agency’s cards with the labels are hand assembled by them. It may not be the right thing for some clients but its worth it if you don’t mind spending a little time on your id package.

Sack Label Business Card Design

This business card was also created by created by 3 Advertising Agency. This business card probably costs a fortune to print but it is really cool. Since this business card is for a shirt company (Sack Wear), attaching a shirt label to the business card is such a simple but effective idea.

A recycled business card design

The most unique business card that I have ever seen. This business card is for Ken Speckle Gifts, a store to purchase eco-friendly recycled and ethical wonders. Since Ken Speckle Gifts is all about recycling and environmental concerns, craft, and interesting uses for materials, what would be the sense in getting a load of cards made by a company from freshly pulped card? That is why Ken Speckle Gifts decided to create a business card that was eco friendly, stand out, fold up nicely, and say everything about them, in the way that words don’t.

Sundial business card design

A business card that was created for an antique watch collector that folds to turn into a working sundial. This business card was designed by Euro RSCG Worldwide.

fold to center business card design

A great business card for a company named ‘Fold to Center‘ because this business card folds to the center. :) This business card was designed by Janelle Rebel from Fold to Center and was printed by Rohner Letterpress in Chicago.

Jubes Food Line Cut Folded Business Card Design

This is a business card created for a company called Jubes by Kinetic Singapore. Jubes is a cube-like fun-to-eat dessert and the business card is a person with a huge mouth full of this fun to eat desert. The cool part of this card is the laser cut mouth. When the business card is folded over, you can see the jubes dessert in his mouth. The printer of this business card was Colourscan.

business card design that looks like business envelope

This is the business card for Catalyst Studios. Doesn’t it look just like a business envelope? By the way, Catalyst Studios has a beautiful portfolio.

These business cards really fooled me. These cards look exactly like a retail price tag, but they are really a business card for Tony Thielsen of Thielen Designs.

Wedgienet business cards

A business card for graphic designer and illustrator, Regina F. Silva. I love double-sided matte finish business cards. I think that the colors that she used works very well…and I can’t help but smile at the W’s wedgie.

in a bottle business cards

I love these fun colors. Genia of Message in a Bottle had these business cards designed and printed by John Sours of JS3 Design and he did all the heavy lifting, including printing! It was worth every penny to not have to hassle with it myself. This business card has a vertical format, fun colors and something incorporating Genia’s bottles. It is a cute idea that the back of the business card includes a “tag cloud” all about Genie.

Eaten Edge of Business Card Design

Somebody took a bite out of the delicious business card of Orderin, a food company. :)

I love this business card. I don’t know anything about ‘The Creative Company’ but the book-like fold makes me wonder if it is a design agency working primarily on books or greeting cards.

    I love it when people get creative like that with their business cards. Most people are so cheap when they want business cards when they call me they say “How much are your cheapest cards”?
    I got to the point where I don’t even want to deal with them anymore because they obviously don’t take price in their business. I mean, what’s more important than your business card?

    Hey could you recommend some companies that specialize in creative business cards that give off great impressions like these? I think a lot of those business cards are awesome. But, I’m having trouble looking for companies that can go overboard like these. Or maybe you could recommend a tutorial to do the design myself…
