This card is all about interaction. The card is cut and rolled up, and then you style the ‘hair’ however you want. The overall design is really simple, but the customization puts it over the top.

Many of us are probably guilty of accepting business cards out of politeness and then just throwing them away or forgetting about them (I know I am). These cards, however, stay with you – psychologically or physically. Some have been cleverly designed to double as useful tools, product samples or funny little toys, while others manage to make a point about the person on the card that will stick more than just a name and an address.
Here’s a Canva template that perfectly illustrates the life of a PR person:

The transparency of this card makes it stand out, but not as much as the meaning behind it. Photographers look through a lens. Much like you look through this card. Try relating the significance of your materials with your profession as much as possible.
