Most unusual business cards designs

A card printed with a person’s name and business affiliation on it is referred to as a business card. Such a card makes reference easy and facilitates recall faster. Business cards are a good way to spread your name and occupation around, especially if your work compels you to meet with a lot of people. And if your business isn’t conducted online, then it is probably the only way you can advertise yourself. But what makes a card stand out? No doubt, your wallet is usually filled with cards given by many people. Which one of them do you recall? And which do you mentally discard?

A unique card makes a person stand out of the crowd. Creativity plays a major role in ensuring that yours catches the eye of the recipient. Read on to find out some of the most creative and unique cards, some that can be used as a tool and others that can actually be eaten.

Sandra Martins Makeup

Look closely and you’ll see that the Sandra Martins Makeup card isn’t a business card in the true sense of the world. It is a lipstick mark-like design with the company name stenciled on it.

It has been designed by creative directors, Denilson Pucci and Renato Cavalhe, and art director Cintya Reese for advertising agency, OpusMúltipla, Curitiba, Brazil. Why not try something like this (without the lipstick mark) the next time you run out of ideas?
