In business card design, there are several things you can do to make a card stand out and be memorable. One of them is having the card cut in a unique way. Here are 15 business cards from Card Observer that all share this quality. You’ll notice that some have been cut to give the card a unique shape or remove certain parts of the stock, while others have been cut to allow special folding. You can find plenty of places that do business cards printing online that will do these types of cuts.

    I particularly like the novel value of the ones that stand up. Will we continue to use paper cards or will virtual business cards take over?

    I love Mr. Brady Clark’s card! I’ve never seen anything like that before. Great post Henry! The placement of the cutout circle in Optimum Fotography’s card at first wasn’t very exciting until you flip the card and the reason for the cutout pulls through. Clever :)

    Great cards. How does one find out where these were printed and cut?

    @jamesdylan – I would try to contact the designer or owner of the card you are interested in. Clicking on the image will take you to Card Observer, where there should be links to their websites.

    How do you suppose one keeps the Ninja BTL card in their wallet? :\ I love the different die cuts and foldable cards (especially those that you can put together after the fact – fun!). My sense is that until we start using something other than a wallet to carry things around in, the premade 3D cards will pose too many problems for recipients to really be anything but cool looking.
