    Hi Steven,

    I’d not seen that before. Cheers.

    Here’s a business card inspiration site you may not be familiar with, called ‘it even has a watermark’:

    What I like about this one is how the cards are categorised into sections, such as plastic, foiling, homemade etc.

    Definitely worth a look.

    Let’s see Paul Allen’s card.
    Look at that subtle off-white coloring.
    The tasteful thickness of it.
    Oh, my God. It even has a watermark.
    Is something wrong, Patrick ?
    You’re sweating.

    Creative business cards like these are awesome, but very un-economical – can you imagine how much it costs to print these?

    its not to often i bookmark a site from a blog post but the designs here are amazing, i just need to find a company that can do the punched out effect, i love it

    I don’t think the extra cost of these business cards is worth it, simply because the fancy design still doesn’t convey how it benefits anybody else. Very nice to look at though.

      Josh,
      I won’t disagree with you, but for inspirational purposes they can be very good (as you said).
