Most business cards are dull, boring, and don’t say much about the person. These business cards tend to be forgotten, which is why then are ineffective. Here are 51 business cards that say a lot about the person:

actual gift
What shows that you love giving more than a ribbon.

blood
Red liquid inside a card is a good way to make it seem bloody.

cat tail
Who wants to play a game of cat and mouse?

cinema ticket
Some people like to save movie stubs and tickets…hopefully they’ll also save this card.

clothes pin
Making a business card doesn’t have to be expensive, you can use house hold items.

coffee
Good way to show what you do.

coupon
Entertaining, yet informative.

cutting edge
This card may look cool, but it is also sharp.

dentist
Teeth marks or a business card weaved with dental floss is a good way to show what you do.

dog tag
Nice use of symbolism.

eat food
The food couldn’t have been that good if you are already starting eating the card.

elevator
Good use of shape to make the card stand out.

farm
Good play on the sense of touch.

fifth floor
Not only is this card engraved with the number 5, it also looks like a floor.

hand
Incase you don’t know what to do with all your business cards, just look at the picture.

head hunter
You better hope the person remembers your contact information because once they eat it there is no going back.

hello
If you attend conferences on a regular basis or are in the dating space, this could be a nice design for you.

hinge
Once again, nice use of symbolism.

impression
Not only is this a cool design, but you can probably make this type of business card yourself.

jason
You may create a cool message when you connect all of the business cards, but who is going to collect all 8.

joke
You can definitely expect this business card to get passed around.

kevin mitnick
I wonder if it can actually be used to pick a lock.

location
If your store location is hard to find, you could consider creating a similar card.

lucas
This card is simplistic and stylish at the same time. It’s a good representation of the jeweler.

lush treated
Not only will people remember that you mow lawns, but hopefully those seeds will make people’s lawn grow faster so they call you more often.

mini person
If you want to put your face on a business card, this is a good way to do so.

office desk
Why tell people you sell office furniture, when you can show them.

peanut card
This may seem like a good concept, but people will tend to forget your contact information after they eat the peanut.

peel
Great way to get potential customers engaged in what you do.

personal trainer
If you need a personal trainer the rubber is probably too strong for you to pull.

popup
Cool concept, but not sure how useful it is.

portfolio
Great way to show what you do.

price tag
Great business card for anyone in sales.

radio
Simplistic, yet effective.

ramesh sharma
If you need marriage counseling, hopefully duct tape holds your marriage together.

rubber band
This would have worked well during the live strong bracelet period.

ruler
Who doesn’t need a ruler?

scratch
Only if it was scratch and sniff.

smith studio
I wonder if the business card is actually eatable?

stamp
Good design for a stamp company.

suit case
I don’t know what this card is all about, but it would work well with a company that is gender oriented.

sundial
What better way to tell time than a sundial.

swimming
Not only is the card inside a ziploc bag, but you can actually put water inside it.

tag
Nice play on symbolism.

tedex
Hopefully Fedex doesn’t sue Ted.

thechurch
This is a great way to get people to come into your church.

toy car
Not only is this card cool, but it is also fun to play with.

tree
Only if it was an air freshener that you could hang in your car.

typography
Looks cool, but it is hard to read. It wouldn’t work if you are looking to network with old people.

visiting card balloon
Once the balloon pops, your contact information will be gone.

we love money
At least you are upfront with your motives.
