Business cards are like any other business promotional and images-building tools, yet are different to a certain extent. Unlike brochure, flyer and post card, business card is not meant to advertise.

We just came across another online business card collection, which we think deserves an article on its own:
The title of the collection is “Oh, my God… It even has a watermark!”, obviously named after the famous and fabulous business card scene in American Psycho. For those of you who don’t haven’t seen it yet and for those who can’t get enough of it, watch it in full length on Youtube
The online business card collection http://www.itevenhasawatermark.com is a great inspirational source of uncounted ideas for how to design an outstanding business card (…and for how to present it nicely). With categories for the colors, themes, technique or material of the cards and a section “similar cards” beneath each single portrait. See for yourself. Here are some examples:
Uncle Pear, Agency for Webdesign, Italy
Mixtape Generation, Japan
Chris O’Neil, SassenDesign, Australia
Pao & Lee Design, China
Everyday we get a lot of requests. One of those of today, because of being particularly nice, deserves citation: Dear team, I just saw on your website that you charge 300 euros for 500 semi-transparent business cards… From a Rhenish media agency however I got a quote which beats your service theoretically! Nevertheless I’d like to give you the chance to acquire me as customer. This would be my proposal: If you reduce the price for me to 200 euros, I’ll order the 500 business cards at yours. Thank you in advance for your feedback. Best regards. 300 euros??? We wondered where on earth this customer could have read such a horrendous price. Surely not on our website. Therefore we sent him the following reply: Dear XY, Thank you for your request. We just can’t imagine where you might have read a price of 300 euros for 500 semi-transparent business cards. For 500 semi-transparent business cards we charge 120 euros plus 20 euros shipping. However, feel free to pay 200 euros Best regards And then his reply, highlight of the day: Now life is meaningful again ! Thank you for this information! Best regards Wonderful, when our prices have such an impact

Sometimes we get requests for samples of transparent business cards in certain colors. It’s interesting that designs in blue are relatively common, also those in red, but we rarely get orders for green business cards and I think we have never printed one in yellow. In orange yes, but not in yellow.
