Creative Business Card Ideas

Ahh business cards. The age-old method of sharing contact information and business details after having a discussion with a total stranger. Whilst everything is going digital, many human interactions still remain physical (luckily) – and it’s often easier to trade a piece of paper than to awkwardly fumble on our phones trying to store the other person’s details. The only downsides of business cards is following up. If you have a boring business card, you run the risk of the person you gave the card to forgetting or discrediting your interaction.

I’ve compiled a list of cool and interesting business card ideas that might give you some inspiration for your next business card design:
