The Art of the Business Card: 187+ Creative Examples, Tutorials & Resources

Business Cards, Business Cards, and more Business Cards… If you’re interested in design, which you most probably are since you’re reading this, you’ll know that there are literally hundreds and thousands of great cards out there, and probably triple that of poorly designed ones. They’re all around us, a great way to promote your business or product, and a great source of inspiration.

There are quite a few business card inspiration posts out there in the design community, but this one is a little different. Not only are there (almost) hundreds of creative cards to look at, there are tutorials and resources, too! Once you’re feeling inspired, it won’t be long and you’ll be finishing up on your own business cards!


Business Card Inspiration:

Here are the examples of the cards, hopefully there are at least a few in there that you’ll love! Remember to share what one (or two.. maybe 3…) are your favourites in the comments below, I’d love to get an in-depth conversation going! What one do you like most? What one stands out most? Get talking! I’d like to say now that they’re not all business ‘cards’, such as the LEGO people, but they have the same purpose!

    @Ben: I simply resized the images to 580px wide and saved them as a jpeg at 10 quality in PS. Other than that and a fast server, that’s all I did ;) I really do recommend Hostgator, they’re awesome.

    Love the collection Callum. There are some great examples there.
    I’m trying to sort out my business cards at the moment, but everytime I think I have the perfect one and am just about to send to the printers I change my mind!

    Whoever said designing for yourself was the hardest thing to do wasn’t joking!

    @Brandon: Thanks, glad you liked it! Uh, took quite a while, about 2-3 hours I think ;)

    @James: Haha I know the feeling ;) Try treating it like it’s a project for somebody else, set yourself tasks and deadlines ;)

    Very comprehensive selection. The examples that combine great design with equally brilliant concept and copy are head and shoulders above the rest.
