A business card doesn’t always have to be white rectangular piece of paper with just a colored logo and black letters printed on it. Be more creative — consider your business card idea as a great opportunity to use your imagination. Usually the most interesting business cards designs belong to small companies and individual businessmen who don’t have a big advertising budget, but still want to stand out as unique.
To create a very distinctive and unusual business card means using every material and technique possible: paper, plastic, additional elements and embellishments, embossing, different kinds of typography...Literally, anything.
