Top 10 Creative and Unusual Business Cards

The other day I got talking to a good friend of mine that I had not seen or heard of in a very long time. We talked for hours just remembering fun times, and it was great to catch up with him as it seemed he was doing far better in life than I could ever dream of! (isn’t that always the case), but the reason for this blog is that he gave me something that I have never been offered before, he gave me a business card! It was nothing amazing, but it did make me wonder just how good a business card could be. The answer surprised me and I will show you why…

  3. Love the blog and thanks for the follow!
    Do you have the source link for the USB business cards? When I clicked the link it just to took me to the photo. Depending on the price I would totally buy those to put my portfolio on.

  4. Have some hope! It only takes a small spark of creativity to get noticed, after all 98% of all viral posts are from blogs that have never gone viral before! (there is a nerdy Social Media Fact for you)

  5. Well i’m hoping i could be as creative as them! All i could think of is some colored paper with my name and number on it. Haha i’m sure it’s not gonna get anywhere.

  6. Haha, I thought the same as you at first. But when trying to decide I came across that idea.

  7. Love these! The biscuit ones are actually pretty clever. Usually people come to a bakery and buy a batch for work or for a gathering and when people get them, they study them for a second or two and then eat them. As long as they’re tasty, they should bring about a lot of business.

  8. Fair enough. i like people with attitude.
    Doesn’t alter the fact that your blog’s brill. Just how long does it take you t research this stuff? And what inspired business cards as a topic? Jeepers I thought I could be a bit off the wall, but I’m a rank amateur.
    Keep up the good work. More cute animals is the way forward. The animals in cups post was a laugh riot.
    😀

  9. I will say to you what I said to someone else that said that…” Sadly I am not the greatest speller, writer or blogger but I am who I am and I blog, spell, write the way I do and always will. One day I hope to be able to pay someone to check it over for me but until that point my grammar will never change.”

  10. Russell, what am i to do with you? You cannot have degrees of ‘unique.’ Something either is or isn’t unique. It’s an absolute. Tsk tsk. Take 100 lines and see me in my study after prep.

  11. I love that one as well, but like someone else pointed out most people would just delete what was on it and use it for something else. But that being said I did see loads of variations on the USB one so loads of people must use them.

  12. Sadly I am not the greatest speller, writer or blogger but I am who I am and I blog, spell, write the way I do and always will. One day I hope to be able to pay someone to check it over for me but until that point my grammar will never change.

  13. Damn….and I thought I was creative. Those are soooo cool! Although not sure how essy it would be to get the lego woman in my wallet.

  14. lol…no, no, I meant I’ve used the same business card that I designed and had made 6 years ago…it is made from card stock…a steel one would be amazing…but at the rate people take the card I have now I would probably go broke keeping a supply of steel ones…people seem to like different/interesting business cards…I think they keep a stash… 🙂

  15. I adore the lego business.. figure lol. All these are really neat! Thanks for stopping by, and giving me a smile to start the day off with.

  16. what great card ideas…I particularly like the look of number 7, I’ve had the same business card for 6 years and I still getting compliments on the card…people remember.

  17. I love the Lego and Space Invaders “cards!” But wait, no Patrick Bateman card, with bone coloring and Silian Rail lettering? Haha 😉

  18. Another typo in 4 “card come catalog” should be “card cum catalog” (Latin), meanwhile when I looked at the last one, I was sure I knew the name on the card from somewhere–a google search later and I realized it was because I’m used to hearing about Rockies former Pitching Coach Bob Apodaca…

  19. Thank you Russell! that was very sweet of you. I am submitting another longer story in a day or two. Hopefully they will accept that one as well. 🙂

  20. Actually a short story of mine just was published Friday on Etherbooks.com! How fab is that? I think a book card would be great! I will have to look into it. 🙂

  21. Hey Russell o
    Just a heads-up on a typo in number 8
    …into music and have a card for your bad this might…
    I’m guessing should read:
    …into music and have a card for your band this might…
    Delete this comment please 😀

  22. Now those were interesting! I never would have imagined there were so many unique business cards! Hmm wonder if I can make one that looks like a book? because I’m a writer you know. 😉

  23. imagination is all one needs. very cool business cards.
    i used to work for a company, where we had a machine that could engrave similar types of metal and wood business cards. you can also create some using sublimation printing.

  24. Upon opening this post today I thought “I’m glad it’s not food again, because I just seem to gain weight just by looking at the photos”. But then, what do I do? I go and pick number 9 as my favorite. There’s no hope.

  25. I love this blog! It is so entertaining! The only thing that bothers me about it is, I keep thinking the pictures relate to the text below. It’s a little annoying … but, let me assure you that this is a small thing, and in no way would stop me from reading it when it pops up on my email! You don’t need to post this, you can just erase it.

Which one did you like?
