Business Card Designs (and a free business card giveaway)

We love business card designs! We find ourselves posting about business cards more than anything else these days. They are an easy way to get you or your business noticed without breaking the bank. There was a time not so long ago when people readily handed out tacky and poorly printed business cards. They seemed to give very little thought to what impression such monstrosities might make. While we still come across many a hideous business card, the internet has allowed for a proliferation of good design & lower printing costs.

Sadly, many of the big ‘chain’ print-shops continue to pump out utter crap. Luckily, consumer tolerance for poor design is dwindling. Outfits like Moo are helping to shake up the industry. We hope they can put an end to the proliferation of poor design by focusing on aesthetics and quality materials. Smaller upstarts are also carving out a niche market for themselves. They are focusing on delivering high-quality designs on high-quality paper at a lower price point.

Gone are the days when you could leave a networking event and proceed to dump a pocketful of fading, dog-eared business cards into the trash. These days, we find our collection of business cards growing at an ever increasing rate.  While we’ll never call most of these people, we sure appreciate their good taste. In the office we now have an entire drawer dedicated to the business card designs which we find most inspiring or memorable.

Below is a roundup of our latest posts featuring business card designs which we hope you can use as a source of inspiration. Click through to each post for more pictures, and don’t forget to let us know which ones are your favourites in the comments!
