Creative Business Cards: Uses of various shapes and materials

Creative Business Cards: Uses of various shapes and materials

Business cards are no longer used just to provide basic information about yourself and your company. Today, more and more companies are using creatively designed business cards to convey the image and personality of their businesses to leave a long lasting impression. One aspect that I really enjoy about these business cards is that they make use of different materials such as metal, plastic, steel as well as using various non traditional shapes. I have assembled an amazing list of these types of creative business cards…feel free to check them out!
