Great examples thanks for sharing. I like the yoga mat, and the word search one is likely to get looked at more than once too. I may be wrong but I imagine producing these cards can be quite expensive. I often make my own one off cards. Quite simple but people seem to like them. Here are a couple of examples in case you and your readers are interested.

I really like the ones that transform into things like the box, horse, car and plane. Also useful ones are cool, like the shoescoop.

But I think the cutest one is the mini yoga mat.

Thanks for sharing!

Fantastic! WOW! what an amazing job putting this together!

The pencil one: a company has to make sure that as the pencil gets sharpened the number and URL stay the longest, not get shaved off from the get go.

Mistake many people make when they make imprinted items…

Good post.

One correction, the coaster shown is actually more of a wooden dollar, I call it a memory chip. It’s 2″ in size.

Also, could Jacob please contact me ASAP as the email he used to contact me keeps bouncing back. Seems fishy. Bad form buddy.

A number of the business card designers responded to my emails with explanations of their designs:

Richard Cardona re the Hypnotist’s aid:

“The idea comes from a TV show in which people were being hypnotized by television to buy more groceries.

It is not a hypnotist’s aid. Though that is very funny.”

Albert Polyakov re Ninja Stars (2):

“Few words about card: This business card I came up two years ago for the studio where I worked (redkeds.com). The idea came to me in the head like a bullet, in an instant, and soon everyone enjoyed. At that moment I was not even thinking about how to make a business card. I was inspired by old movies about ninjas and kung-fu. I thought “why not make a shuriken that will kill and still be functional” (joke) Printing in «Locus Standi» (www.ls.ru) Material dense silver cardboard (Embossing, silk screening)”

Wes Thomas re Animals:

“The idea came from just brainstorming some ideas of how to make a card that would stand out a little bit from the rest. I am still working on this project and have recently sourced an excellent US manufacturer capable of producing these cards (and other custom animal designs) in a cost effective way.”

Emily Berry re Chair:

“The idea came from designer Ufuk Keskin’s sheet seat chair which can be found at his site at http://www.ufukkeskin.com

Ben Morales re Prison Cell:

“I’ve always been fascinated by business cards that have an extra level of functionality and interaction, so when designing this card for my lawyer friend I wanted to create something that was clean and elegant but would also have a “wow” factor. I had seen cards with slip-cases before but they were purely decorative. I thought if I could utilize a slip-case that also reflects the theme of criminal law, it would make for a much stronger promotional piece.”

Bryce Bell re Catapult:

“I had just seen other cool business cards around and wanted to build something that was unique and fit in with my interests. After thinking about it for a while that is what I came up with.”

Brian Kammerzelt re Word Search Game:

“The idea is my own from a late night design session — I have yet to see anyone else do it. I was wanting new cards to go along with for my new professional site that represented all of my professional identities. I didn’t want some pretentious list of titles on it so the word search seemed like a fun way to communicate my rolls in a way that emphasized the common thread of being a creative.”

Abhinav Dapke re USB Stick:

“I was attending an international exhibition & exchanging cards & info about product & company is a general scenario in exhibitions. But while transferring this info they were connecting information- brochure, CD with their visiting card by stapling or putting it in a bag so that recollecting the particular information is much easier.”
