The awesome business card designs have been building up in my bookmarks, and I think it’s about time for another round of swoonworthy business card design inspiration. Oh, boy, do I ever have some fantastic designs to show you!
First up are motion graphics designer Sophie Gallo’s handmade business cards. She calls this project “her Everest”, and I can see why. She used a combination of screen printing, Gocco, and letterpress techniques to create these beauties. I’m absolutely fascinated by her use of an etching press as a letterpress. Sophie actually shares a video of the process, so you can see how she used the press. Hmm, defnitely has me thinking. Here are the beauteous results:
How can you not love a business card that has been die cut in the shape of a pear, and a bearded pear, at that? And that logo is so memorable and fun! – via FPO
I’m swooning over these letterpress business cards for web development and design company Ackmann & Dickenson, printed by Studio on Fire. Custom duplex paper, a silver/gray/navy blue palette, custom die cutting, and a fantastic quilted letterpress pattern … just … swoon.
Ooh, this is one sexy business card. Created by Studio Z Mendocino for Maria Bernal Photography, the card features hot pink edge painting, clear, pewter-y silver and hot pink foil stamping, and it’s letterpressed onto ultra thick, museum mount paper. – via Card Observer
Love this letterpressed business card for Image is Found, part of the identity system created for the company by designer Lindsay Preston. Using the logo to create the pattern on the cards is so clever.
More fantastic pattern in a bold and lovely teal on Cleanwash’s letterpress business cards. I absolutely adore their logo, too!
These business cards for photographer/videographer Cale Glendening by Invisible Creature are little works of art. From the chic, embossed black mini envelopes to the die cut area that creates a filmstrip effect when the business card is pulled from the envelope, these cards are swoonworthy personified. – via Notcot
