Cool Business Card Ideas

In the business world, it's always important to stand out. One of the best ways to do this is through the use of flashy, cool and memorable business cards. It doesn't matter how generic or boring your company may be, you can still leave a lasting impression with your business cards, and here are a few ideas how.

Rounded Corners

There is nothing more plain and generic than a traditional white and rectangle business card. Bring a clean look and smooth feeling to your design with rounded corners.

Die Cut Designs

Create your business cards with a design and impression that lasts. While die cut business cards will cost more, they are one of the most effective ways to create a unique design. The die cut design can be anything, such as a simple cut out, or in the shape of your company logo.

Mini Business Cards

One of the latest growing trends is to create mini business cards. Not only will these cards definitely stand out when in a pile of regular size cards, but you can also carry a lot more of them around.

Magnets

When someone gives you a business card, you usually throw it in a drawer or box. With a magnet, there is a good chance your business card ends up on the refrigerator holding up some papers. This is an excellent way to get free exposure all year round, right in the kitchen!

Folded Cards

Another very creative way to design your cards, while also giving you a lot of space for information and design work, is through the use of folded business cards. Folded cards can also stand up on their own, which is a great way to display them on your desk, or at your next conference.

Plastic and Metal Cards

A more expensive way to get attention, but definitely created to stand the test of time. Plastic cards show that you can afford high quality business cards, while also offering a solid feel and design, that is sure to leave a lasting impression. For really heavy hitters, you can always upgrade to metal business cards. They are heavy, can include a die cut design, and will blow all of the other cards in your box away. Metal cards can cost around $2 to $3 each!

As you can see, there are plenty of ways to create business cards that leave a lasting impression. Even if you have a simple business name like BusinessInsurance.org, there are plenty of ways to bring your business cards to life. From simple and professional improvements like rounded corners or a diet cut design, to creating full color business cards with a company logo that helps with branding.
