We’re excited to announce the launch of Card Observer, a showcase of only the best and most beautiful business card designs. On an internet overflowing with web design galleries, we felt their was a real need for a site such as this.

Card Observer will be updated daily with fresh business cards. So make sure to sign up for the RSS Feed. If you have designed or own a business card that deserves a spot in the CO gallery, let us know about it.

    Nice niche gallery site! I would always go to a flickr group for business card inspiration (….which link i cant find)

    Great site. People have been looking for different business card aggregate site for a long time. Good to see that another one has been started up.

    Great idea — it’d be awesome if you could have “next” and “previous” UI once you’ve clicked on a gallery item. It’s too precarious to have to click back to the gallery to then click the next item… I want to click through them like a slide show.

    I was just thinking the other week that somebody needs to start a gallery dedicated to business card design. Consider me subscribed!

    @Niki: Here’s the Flickr group I frequent, http://www.flickr.com/groups/bizcard/ — could that be the same one? HTH.

    @Jesse – That is a very good suggestion. Keep an eye out for functionality enhancements like that one and others in the coming weeks.

    Great concept, good to finally see a business card gallery ‘filter’. Very inspiring examples!

    ditto on the need for Next/Prev buttons. I’m too lazy to keep going back and too dumb to remember where I was last in the gallery. I’m probably not the only one.

    ditto again for prev/next whilst in detail view.
    comment fields are rather large as well, for the seeing impaired?
    love the color scheme and the concept.
    great work :)
