The internet might encourage us to use less and less paper, but business cards are still an important part of business branding and networking. If you don’t have one while you’re at a networking event, it is very likely that the people you talk to will very quickly forget your name and what you do.
Huffpost posted a cool rundown of some of the most creative, memorable business cards that are amazing extensions of the businesses they represent. Check some of these out:
This one is for a yoga studio and it rolls up just like a yoga mat. Memorable and interactive!

Love this one! It’s more than just a business card, it’s a to-go sized cheese grater that guarantees it won’t be thrown away.
If you’re going to treat yourself to something really nice while you’re making business expenses, it should be a business card that makes you feel really proud of yourself and that you are eager to flaunt. Even if it isn’t your style to do something a little bold like these cards, you can still choose something unique and classy that goes above and beyond the standard white rectangle with black lettering.
Vista Print continues to offer various templates that you can use for free for 250 business cards and you’re only charged for shipping. However, they aren’t too expensive if you want to upgrade to better paper quality and to have them remove their logo from the back.
