Think of all the business cards out there, exchanging hands in serendipitous encounters, potential-client meetings and large industry conferences. All of the best business cards serve a purpose: They provide information about you and your work, and they hopefully encourage the receiver to follow up with you in some way. And as part of your identity, a great business card reflects your personality.
If you really like the horizontal rectangular format, you can add in customized edges to stand out. The shape is still simple, but adjusted just enough to give it a softer feel with the subtle curves.
Or you can arrange different icons to create a whole motif. For a business card with clever icon arrangement, click on the design below.
“The last element for us was the use of color to tie the brand directly to something quirky and clever—my glasses. That’s a longer story, but suffice it to say that one trip to See Eyewear ended up influencing not only our business cards, but the skyline sign on the top of our building in downtown Nashville, which you can change the color on from our Paramore Color smartphone app. How’s that for symmetry.”
Shaving off an inch of a standard rectangular card gives you a more elongated shape that looks nice and slim. Bigger isn’t always better, and this is a good example.

What makes a good business card? “A good business card embraces its format, yet stands out in a crowd,” says Becca Eley, founding partner of Tag Collective. “Our cards send a message about the caliber of our work. We focused on the experience, the tactile nature of print. We selected a paper that has a unique feel (Curious Skin) and used both engraving and letterpress techniques to create raised lettering and an indented mark. Overall they have a solidity that feels dependable, and a simplicity that feels elegant and considered—which is exactly what we want our studio to stand for.”
Utilizing a sleeve with a peekaboo window can give you a two for one when it comes to the inner design. Here what starts as a cavity becomes the telephone, a cute play on why you’d be visiting a dentist in the first place.
Changing the orientation from horizontal to vertical can make your card stand out as well, and adding patterning around the edges can make a simple design more complex.
Giving your business card a second chance at life is a great way to help reduce the possibility of it getting thrown out. Biodegradable paper seed packets are simple to find and getting them customized is just as easy.
Or you can always just show a picture that perfectly sums up what you do. Like in the examples above.
Beautiful typography in this case is really enough for great branding.

You’ve got all the tools, now it’s up to you. If you follow these tips you’ll be sure to have an awesome business card. Happy designing!
What makes a good business card? “A great business card is one that is memorable and is an extension of your brand,” says Amy Graver, owner and creative director at Elements. “Every design decision—from the paper choice to the printing process—should be considered carefully to help convey the personality of your brand. For example, we chose a toothy paper and smooth, hand-applied sticker to convey attention to detail and our love of tactile materials.”

Another metal functional card, this card can be kept and used as a tool on a bicycle. Something as durable and useful as this ensures that whoever has it will see your name again and again as they use it.
We reached out to 14 designers and firms at the top of their game to see what their business cards look like—and to find out what they believe makes a good business card.
Being unconventional by using different materials can make a huge difference in the feel of your business card. Wood was used, giving it a natural and earthy look, as well as a different feel in your hand.
While this card might not be as practical as others, it’s definitely out of the box. Heat activated ink reveals the brand and contact information, giving it a cool, scorched effect.
If you like the square shape but want it to be a bit more interesting, turn it on its end. Diamonds are simple enough to get printed standardly, but different enough to stand out.
These cards are hand pressed to give a wooden texture to the background. The indentations give a nice feel when you hold the card, and make the white background more interesting.

Really black cards with bold, white text just can’t look bad. An interesting texture in the background makes the card more unique.
This example below is also rich in humor and practicality. Check out that cheeky line and the budget-friendly monochrome.
“The business card is the strongest, most personal piece of collateral you have. It carries the company’s identity as well as your own; it’s your name on the card, after all. You either hand it to someone personally or send it in the mail along with a personal note, so it’s an intentional connection. We believe that your brand should be simple and bold. Iconic. Simplicity is powerful.
Another play on why you go to the dentist, here an entire mouth is used, reminiscent of the chattering teeth toys we all know so fondly.
“[My] cards are individually cut from my letterpress type posters using inventory that is damaged in some way (ink splatter, bent corner, etc) and stamped by hand,” Moll says.
Even less interactive, but just as effective, this card shows what this person can do for you. The message is clear and represented simply, with the indentations adding an extra element.
Using elements of your profession doesn’t have to be as literal as a bike tool. Here it shows a more metaphorical aspect of what they can do for you.

Letterpress and embossed effects are often used on business cards. A simple texture also really makes the card unique.
Here are a couple of square business card templates you can customize:
While this card doesn’t have as much interaction as the previous, it still has a cool effect. You pull away the die cut bottom and the shape of a comb appears, relating back to the profession.

If bright color isn’t your style, imprinting symbols or logos into your card gives it a lot of depth. Try imprinting something relatable to your business, or choose a pattern that meshes well.
What makes a good business card? According to Stitch Design Co.: “A good business card is a business card that you want to keep, one that is not easily discarded. The card should be designed as something more than just a card; it should be a mini self-promotion piece. The overall design and printing process of the card should speak to the company’s values and approach to business. If the company specializes in luxury products—the printing process should reflect that.”
Utilizing aspects of your business to create your card makes it feel more authentic and approachable. Here foldable foam is used to create a mini yoga mat for a yoga studio, a fun and witty take on a traditional card.
A more simple pop up is used here, but it still adds a cool dimensionality versus a flat card.

Here’s another card using transparency, but this one uses blank areas in the ink to allow for see through windows. The type is see through, as well as the logo, so wherever you lay it down that color will shine through and be unique every time.
Simple and square again, yet with rounded corners this time. This card relates the curves of the logo with the curves of the corners.
“For our personal cards, we took the same approach. By using real wood veneer, screen-printed stains, letterpress printing and foil stamp contact info, we tried to make something feel extremely premium and clean but also have a handcrafted vibe. It is also hard for these suckers not to get noticed since they weigh about 20 pounds each.”
Typography can be used for both information and decoration in the place of graphics. In this card, a couple of graphics are used, but the type is the major player.
Designer: Cameron Moll Material: Crane Lettra, Pearl Production: Letterpress; hand-cut and hand-stamped Printer: Bryce Knudson, Bjorn Press
Every last one of these business cards is stunning, but they won’t beat the one you design yourself (imagine how good it will feel to give away business cards you designed for yourself).

Everyone loves getting free stuff, so why not incorporate that with your card? Here a hairstylist uses bobby pins to make the illusion of hair, and you get to use them.
Typography is used in this card as well, but the texture lends so much more than plain printed text. These cards were hand sanded to give them a worn down appearance.

What makes a good business card? According to Archrival: “A good business card always leaves the right kind of impact. It’s both a first impression and a lasting brand extension we want people to be compelled to hold onto. At Archrival, we consider the business card documentation of the most personal type of communication … and as such should be designed with care.”
Similarly, this customizable design below uses simple elements to connote the sea.
No. You make one swift exchange — your expertly designed business card.
A simple texture also works — like in the Canva templates below.
What makes a good business card? “The card must impress the moment it’s received and be comment-worthy,” says Jenn David Connolly, creative strategist of Jenn David Design. “It must capture attention and pique curiosity or examine it further. It should break out of the typical 3”x2.5” business card size, but not in an outrageous way. It should not be too large or too thick.”
Beautiful simplicity – both sides are the opposite of each other – black/white, but green a line just connects both sides and makes them familiar and related.
The custom shape makes this card unique, but the two shades of teal paired with the shape gives it an almost three-dimensional effect. Different tones in the same color family help make designs more cohesive.

Rubber stamps are used in this card as well, but translates the rounded corners of the logo into the card itself. The attention to detail makes it look thought out and professional.
What Makes a Good Business Card? “There are two primary purposes of your business card: represent your brand and provide contact information. The magic is in the mix of these two elements,” says Hannah Paramore, president of Paramore Digital.
Here’s a Canva template that perfectly illustrates the life of a PR person:

What makes a good business card? “A good business card materializes from a combination of fundamental design principles,” says art director Amanda Acevedo. “Ultimately, the design expresses the brand. A business card is a brand ambassador—recognizable as the brand and a quick, courteous interaction with the brand. Hierarchy—tried and true principle for communicating effectively. Crucial in good business card design for the amount of standard information assigned to a small amount of space. Hierarchy, always.
“So, in the latest version of our business cards we stripped most of that away, relying on our website to provide connection options. We simplified it to one phone number, one email address and a URL that takes you to each person’s personal page on the company website. The effect is understated yet bold. Like that strong, silent type standing in the corner. You can’t miss it.
With all of this awesome inspiration how can you not want to create an equally awesome business card? Just remember to keep these few things in mind:
Try it on the clean and professional look for size with the Canva business card templates below.
Your business card is a reflection of you, think of some interesting things about yourself and incorporate that into your card.
Yoga again, and really fun again. Using interactive cut outs on your card creates a fun experience for the user and helps them remember you.
Adding extra elements like sleeves can make your cards feel more upscale. The process of taking the card out is reminiscent of opening a gift or a letter, which makes the idea of receiving it much more exciting.
This card is relatively simple to start, yet shines a light on how attention to detail can really set you apart. The simple front and back looks clean and professional, yet the subtle splatter effect on the logo and edges gives it a textural element that really stands out.
What makes a good business card? “A good business card is one that is hard to toss aside,” says Robynne Raye, co-founder of Modern Dog Design Co. “[Our] cards are printed with name and email (no other info is on the card), that way I can customize with a Sharpie. Each person gets a unique, one-of-a-kind card.”

“The logo is blind embossed in the top right, and employee information is listed clearly and simply on the bottom left. We don’t have a lot of hierarchy at Tank, so we don’t even list job positions on our cards.”
As we all know this popular blog – it comes as no surprise they’ve created a minimalist business card, using light, beautiful typography.
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.
Here’s what’s called a ticket cut. A simple rectangle with a few notches cut out gives a more interesting appearance than straight edges.

They really dug the ideas you brought to the table and you’re thinking a promotion could be in order. What do you do? Fumble with your phone to take down their contact information? Ask them to fumble with their phone to take down yours?
“Successfully balancing several elements—logo, contact information, website and social media addresses, tagline, art—into an uncluttered, attractive, tangible first impression is a sign of good design. Lastly, the business card design is memorable, evokes a feeling, or makes an emotional connection, for example, through colors, imagery typography, production material, copywriting, tone, attitude, shape or texture.”
Business cards can be a reflection of who you are. Not only can you make an excellent first impression all on your own, but a unique business card can help seal the deal and give someone something to remember you by.
Here’s a great example of using elements of your business as design elements. You immediately recognize it’s about cheese without actually seeing a piece of it, since the die cuts are arranged so familiarly.

Designing a Business Card: 50 Awesome Case Studies (And What You Can Learn From Them)
“The main reason you give someone your business card is so they will have your contact information, but how much info do they actually need? Over the past decade we’ve seen business cards become so cluttered with the various ways to connect (2 phone numbers, a fax number, street address, email, URL, and a dozen social icons) that they look desperate. It’s only a matter of time before someone out there adds a call to action to ‘Right swipe me on Tinder.’ Just wait. It’s coming,” Paramore says.
Here pop ups are used again, but in a much more crafty way. The cuts out are folded back to show different colors underneath. The same pattern is used, but the different colors give each card a different personality.
The Canva designs below follows the same path of simplicity, while still driving the their respective brand identities home.
Here are simple business card designs that’ll set you right up:

Letterpress effects are really popular lately but there is a great reason for it: it looks fantastic.
Thinking of creative ways to display your logo without taking up a bunch of space can help keep things simple. Hand stitching the logo on the side like a clothing tag saves space on the card, yet adds an interesting element.
What makes a good business card? “A good business card is something that doesn’t just get thrown in a wallet and forgotten,” says Geoffrey Bunting, founder of The Ugly Tree Graphic Design. “It’s a piece of you that you give to someone that stays with them and makes them say ‘wow,’ by being either visually stimulating or having interesting and engaging content.”

What makes a good business card? “As someone who does business almost exclusively on the web, it’s tough for me to answer that question,” Cameron Moll says. “The only time I hand out or receive cards are at conferences a few times per year. But for me, the value of a business card is found in its personification of the giver, and just as importantly its authenticity. The best and most memorable cards I’ve received reinforced the feelings I had upon meeting the giver.

What makes a good business card? “Since the basic information of any card is now so easily shared and transmitted via digital devices, it helps to consider thinking about a printed card, specifically, as an anti-digital artifact,” says Michael Borosky, founder and creative director at Eleven. “In other words, use the craft of printing to your advantage and appeal to the senses. You only have a few seconds to leverage a hand-to-hand exchange into a momentary, favorable impression.

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.
Utilizing aspects of your profession in your card makes for great visuals. For instance, in the example above, a film company uses a clapperboard as their card. A simple graphic, yet it speaks immediately about who they are and what they do.

What makes a good business card? “Whiskey’s goal for every card we design is that each time our clients hand off a card, be it in a meeting room or just on the street, we want whoever they are handing it to to have an immediate reaction. (Hopefully it’s, ‘Holy shit, that’s bad-ass.’) We want that person to think that if our client took that much time on their cards, just imagine the level of attention they will invest into their business,” says Matt Wegerer, creative director at Whiskey Design.
Legibility is key. Be sure all of the important information (name and contact) is easy to find and easy to read.
“Our original cards, designed fifteen years ago, used five different (but subtle) printing techniques. Our current card uses only three, the most memorable being the die-cut 11. It’s the one thing people have consistently commented on over the years and, incidentally, the most expensive part of the process.”
Peel away stickers can be used as well to reveal a transition or a new image underneath. It’s interactive and interesting enough to create an impression.

What makes a good business card? According to Tank Design: “A good business card should represent an individual, or business, in a way that is unobtrusive but memorable. Handing over a card takes a few seconds so it should be simple enough to be digested in that time. Impactful—but not distracting.
We’ve sprinkled some Canva business card layouts throughout this article!
Imagine this: You just left an important meeting with some industry big shots.
“The Tank card is intentionally simple and void of style. It doesn’t take a strong design perspective, because we don’t want to influence our clients visually at the earliest stage of meeting them. We don’t want to suggest we have a particular ‘style’ that will influence our thinking. We view ourselves as a gallery for our clients—a backdrop for them.
Nice, big rounded corners grab attention. A unique presentation as well.
