    These are really amazing!!!

  • James, July 28, 2010

    Great collection, some of these put my business cards to shame. Seems like the embossed style is becoming far more popular these days, and these designs make really great use of it.

    Would be good to see some other collections of business cards, perhaps a collection of die cut designs?

      smita,
      The links point to the source where I found them. In some cases it is the owner’s Flickr account and in others it was from a Flickr group that showcases business card design (basically a Flickr version of Card Observer).

    Engraved business cards? Why not. If you like embossing perhaps you could like also engraved business card.
    I had created a wood business cards engraved with laser technology on a light wood (balsa wood, used for plane model. Very nice business card, original and impressive!
