Though slowly becoming antiquated, the business card is still the easiest way to make a great first impression with a new contact. Your choice of design, fonts, even paper says a lot about you. So imagine the impression you’ll leave when you hand someone your contact details laser-etched onto a piece of beef jerky — you’ll soar up that corporate ladder.
Here’s a brilliant way to drum up new business if you’re an optometrist. Myung Dong, an eye doctor in Jeju, South Korea, found the perfect way to convince the local elderly population that they could benefit from glasses or other vision treatments: a business card featuring a self-administered eye test.
It’s probably one of the most expensive ways we’ve ever seen to promote yourself, but there’s no doubt that experimental musician Richard Eigner’s music box business cards leave a lasting impression on whoever’s lucky enough to receive one. Created by Katharina Hölzl, the design was inspired by the musician’s live shows which involve audience members joining the performance with music boxes of their own.
Since printing its address and contact details on a slice of muenster cheese would probably do more harm than good for Bon Vivant, the Brazilian-based cheese shop hired ad agency JWT to come up with something better.

So I’ll always think of it as a scrappy throwback to simpler times. These Star Wars business cards by Mary Sue can be seen as a throwback to the best years of Star Wars. Hopefully they’ll come back.
In order to make a big impression at an upcoming job fair, electrical engineering student Jay Kickliter created this interactive business card that lights up a flashing ring of LEDs whenever it’s touched.
Handing someone a well-designed business card that’s clever, even humorous, is a great way to promote yourself. But handing someone a giant poster and asking them to slice it up into 100 cards to create a flip-book animation? That all but guarantees you a spot on the unemployment line.
