18-Jason Permenter Design Business Card
This card makes use of crisp, bold, black-and-red lettering on a more rustic paper to achieve a textured look and feel. The material is a 110 lb. cover uncoated kraft paper. Each card was printed in-house with archival inks and cut by hand from a master sheet to 54 X 15.25 mm. The final aspect ratio of the cards was chosen as a result of the typography, rather than the other way around. Obviously, it’s a very small card, but the text turns out to still be very legible at that size due to the contrast and scale.

  1. I like the idea with the Crl+Alt+Delete keys. This is a very creative idea. The first business card, the wooden one, is a nice idea too, but seems to be unpracticable if it doesn’t fit in my wallet. Maybe this one would work if it had something on it to use it as a keyring or something like this.

  2. Great stuff! Thak you for sharing these great designs…although some of them might be a bit pricey…? :-)

  3. These are all really great designs! The wooden cards are a really cool idea, but I agree with J32 that they might be better used as a keychain or something. The business card concept might work better if the info were printed on thinner wood, perhaps like a sheet of veneer.

  4. very nice set of business cards. :))

  5. I know just the stock to use: 1/64″, 3-ply birch aircraft-grade plywood. Costs about $20 for a 12″x24″ sheet. Laser-engrave the surface, and you have the most totally kickass wooden card that will actually fit in a business card holder!

  6. Hi all,
    I really like some cards like wooden cards and Ctrl Del card as well.

  7. The 01-Wooden Business Card by Sam Gough is a very memorable and creative business card. Thanks for sharing! We just got inspired.
