20 Clean White Letterpress Business Cards

By / Apr 2, 2010 / Inspiration

Not too long ago I owned a site called Card Observer, which is a gallery of business card designs. Everyday I would have to look through submissions and pick out the best business cards. This was something I really enjoyed and miss doing. So I thought it would be fun to do a showcase of awesome business cards here.

For this post, I’ve rounded up a collection of 20 clean white letterpress business cards that will inspire you. You’ll notice that the clean and minimal approach taken with these designs conveys an overwhelming sense of quality and elegance.

    It is really hard to create an inspiring business card using white as the main color, since all business cards are white. But this set shows us that colors are not the only option to make a business card remarkable.

    Gret set!

    I also recommand these collection of blue & dark business cards:

    This level of details on a tiny 3.5×2 is simply amazing. Justifying the price for letterpress or emboss can be difficult, but once you have the product in your hand, you know it was worth every last penny. Nice work.

    Brilliant collection, love how clean and professional the letterpress effect creates on the business cards.

    The one that says Montage with the ‘g’ horizontal seems to be the best for me, hopefully we’ll decide soon how to develop our letterpress cards. :)

    Stumbled this post, love your tweets also! :)

    Really nice roundup! I like minimalist designs and letter-pressed business cards so these really appeal to me. Nothing can bring the sophisticated look more than a white-pressed letter pressed business card. Love the Penelope Jones one.

    This round up reminds us how simple but high quality ingredients never fail to please. Kudos also to the photographers who captured the dimensions of paper, the embossing, the ink and the different shades of white. Art in small delicious bites.
