    Some interesting and unusual concepts. Brittany Guarino, Anteris and MaComiX are amazing, not so keen on the circular card types, they look a bit like beer mats to me!

    those are some very interesting and inspiring business cards

    Gee, I feel so . . . square! The rooster tent card is like a mini sandwich board. And the perfed Popsicle is brilliant and memorable–how can you forget the name “Duo” after seeing that?

    There are some really nice business cards in this collection. I particularly like the ones for Marek Rojek, Sam Gough, LAPA LAPA, Dr. Hajnal Kiprov, and the Bombay Bakery card this one is perfect! Every little subtle detail adds the the over all design, the paper used the print technique, the way it has been cut out, the embossing and the design. A lot of thought has gone into it and every element considered. I love it!

    Awesome collection. I’ve seen some of those on other sites but some new are really creative. I gues everyone should start to think about company identification like that – the world would have more color and variations. :)

    Yeah, I’ve seen a couple of those elsewhere I always design my own cards ever since I saw American Psycho and always like to refer to posts like this for ideas, but I just don’t know if I could bring myself to spend serious money on business cards like some of the above. Although, if you want to stand out from the crowd I guess you have to bite the bullet. I really like the Luicedesign ones they must have cost a pretty penny. Anyone got any idea how much something like that would cost to do?

    Thanks awesome collection!

    Such a great collection.

    I really like the DUO card. It’s quite simple yet you would never forget the name of their business once you’ve seen their business card split in two.

    I would hate to pay the printing costs on some of them. But they sure do pack a punch!

    Very nice collection! Thanks for sharing

    It´s an awesome and original collection of designs. I love it!

    I really enjoyed the following:
    - White Tea Photography: very creative cards that look like little tea bags. Plus, it is a very elegant design.
    - Brittany Guarino – This card really has a nice overall look to it. I’m sure would gain a lot of attention from those receiving it.
    - Agencia D – A nice creative design that I’m sure gets noticed and will still fit in the wallet.

    It’s important to take the style of the company into account when creating unusual cards. Creative cards like these can generate a lot of attention especially if they fit with your company type and with the expectations of your target audience.

    Have one like Darkmvi and they are pretty cool. Watch out with small font, transparancy and daylight. When there is not enough light, custumors can’t read the text anymore.

    Such unique designs… I love the one that pops up like a laptop. That would be perfect for so many businesses… but I suppose their originality is what makes them so effective, so I need to put my thinking cap on.
