As we’re always showing you beautiful packs of Business Cards made with artwork or photography, we thought for once we’d show you something different. It’s not always appropriate or possible to use images on your cards; maybe you’re a writer, marketer or software developer, or perhaps you’re promoting an application – so what do you do then?
And if it’s words you’re after, we’ve spotted some lovely Wordle cards out there – used for everything from Weddings, to Business cards. Wordle makes beautiful tag clouds from your own text, and allows you to choose colours and fonts according to your personal style. These, Cards were made by Annie Mole, using Wordle, and promote her blog:
Some small businesses who have a logo (rather than freelancers, who often don’t) really make the most of it by printing in a variety of colours. This works really well when you take them out of your pocket to hand them over.

Recently we’ve spotted two examples of companies or individuals using a form of customer endorsement or review on their cards. The first is a set of Business Cards from Mike Coulter, based on the Tweets of friends and colleagues. Why try to convince people of your brilliance when others can do it for you?
The second example are these beautiful cards from TrakAx. They’ve been designed to feature different quotes from customers and publications, and not only have the ‘wow’ factor when you take them out of your pocket, but are really good conversation starters, around the product:
So, what about you? If you’re in the same situation, promoting something that can’t or wont be photographed, what do you put on your cards? If you got any images, add the links in the comments – we’d love to compile a gallery of the best, for our Business Cards Ideas Pages
