Business card designs on Pinterest: Sometimes it can be a big time waster to simply click around online searching, “cool business cards designs.” Google images does a decent job of displaying dozens at once, but I find that some of the best collections of business cards designs are over on pinterest, where someone else has already compiled dozens of their favorite designs.
If you are a graphic designer, or plan on hiring one to help with your business cards, here are a few boards that you should definitely check out for inspiration!
- Dan McKeating Pinterest Board: Over 45o pins of clean, colorful, creative designs

There are a number of really interesting business cards on these boards, but remember to consider what makes sense for your own personal business or self-promotion. While a business card that assembles into a tiny airplane is going to get a lot of attention online, it might be an expensive, and ineffective way to promote your “professional photography” business! While you should probably aim higher than the free business cards offered online, you can replicate a number of these designs within a small budget.
Remember that add-ons like die-cutting (rounded corners, etc) can be expensive, although many times it’s worthwhile. The most popular online printing sites that offer standard size and/or die-cut business cards include: VistaPrint.com Deals, OvernightPrints, PrintPlace, and PsPrint, and we’ve got great coupons for all of them.
