How to make your business card stand out: Printspiration

How many business cards have you been given in your life? From networking events to social functions, business cards are handed out at random constantly. Some stay in our wallets for months at a time, some we make use of, and others we disregard. Business cards are an essential marketing tool, and when it comes to designing an eye catching business card – you can go all out.

Thanks to die-cutting, letterpress, metallic ink and a variety of print materials, your business card design can certainly leave a long-lasting impression. It comes down to intelligent graphic design.

Interactive Business Card Design

Business Cards are a tangible marketing tool, and by making your card interactive, you solidify your place in the consciousness of your potential customer. The below business card offers just what the consumer wants – brand interaction.

The card seems simple enough at first glance, but can be made into a small chair, showing off the creativity of the business itself. By engaging with the card, taking time out to build it, the consumer builds a relationship with the brand and will always remember this fun interaction. Interactive business cards have become hugely popular, and for good reason. Through die-cutting and professional graphic design, Jetline is able to assist you in creating the ultimate interactive business card for your brand.

Make sure they remember your face

Having your picture displayed on your business card, as a pop up (as per example below), or as a simple print – or even a fun caricature, helps potential and current clients remember your face and name.

This kind of visual and personalised approach to business card design has become popular, specifically in the creative industries.

If you don’t want to take this highly personalised route, or just don’t want your picture taken, make use of images of your products or services, a simple visual can sometimes say more than words ever could. 

Tactile Business Cards

Tactile business cards and business cards made using non-standard materials and unconventional design. 


These are cards made of woods, metals, metallic inks, or have an element of letter press design. They are also cards that are cut into non-conventional shapes. These kinds of cards may not work for all businesses, if you work in an industry that doesn’t quite lend itself to bright, shiny, out of the box design elements, then you may not want to go with this kind of design. However, by adding touches of metallic inks, as seen above, you can create a more simplified version of this trend, a business card that speaks to your industry and draws the eye at the same time. This may not be all out tactical design, but it carries elements of the popular trend, in a subtle way.
