Business Card Inspiration

I’m going to redesign my business cards soon, so I’ve been wandering around the internet hoping to be inspired. These are some of my favorites finds so far. Have you seen any good ones lately?

If in doubt, you can’t go wrong with black ink on kraft paper. (source: ghost)

Tape business cards = genius. You could go around sticking your business cards on people—even against their will! You’d just have to be sneaky about it. (source: akula kreative)

I love the idea of giving business cards a bit more dimensionality, but this wouldn’t work well for my purposes. I keep a stack of cards in my bag to pass out on the fly, and I think I would end up with a mess. (source: oh, hello friend)

In other news… if you commented on my blog this week, I’m sorry to say that your comment has been lost in cyberspace. Sorry! My butt-munch of a web host randomly lost all my website changes for the past week, and since I only backup my database once a week I don’t have them either. Sad! Just wanted you to know I didn’t delete them out of spite or anything!

    Wow yes these are some nice ones. I am working on a business card and I seem to be liking the first one on kraft paper. My buisness is Little Lemonade Studio so I am experimenting with yellow and pink.

I love your comments more than I love chocolate (almost).
