50 Bizarre & Brilliant Business Card Designs!

The business card is as minimal and business-like, or as extravagantly brilliant as you want to make it. The following examples of business cards focus on the bold, bizarre, and utterly fabulous. If you’re about to design your business card, look to this list for inspiration. Admittedly, it might be difficult to pull-off many of the weird material choices and crazy concepts. However, I hope the following cards impel you to do something brilliant yourself and step-out-of-the-box when conceptualizing your own designs.
