Business Cards with Positioning Statement
This business card Below is very engaging because it makes use of an old school photo giving the essence that this writer has classic writing skills and is a true professional. The graph paper background adds a whimsical touch and then I like that they include a positioning statement about the business itself. It makes it feel a little more like an ad. Obviously, it is perfect for a writer, but you could sub out the photo for a hammer and make it for a contractor, or electrical wires and make it for an electrician.

Old School Business Cards
Right away I know what this business is for the card below, before I even read it. Framing the business name with traditional imagery that has represented the business for decades, and again using a retro font, makes you take notice. You could sub out the barber poles for symbolism of another type of classic profession, like a plumber, lawyer, leather crafter, etc.
Fun Business Card Designs
If you have a fun product, the card should be fun. This card for a cupcake bakery makes use of colorful sprinkles to grab attention. The reverse side of the business card is the turquoise blue, so either way it lands on a table, it catches the eye. Related Content: 12-Month Marketing Plan for an Online Bakery.

Black and White Business Card
This is another black and white, minimalist design, and it suits the nature of this music studio business because it is clean and elegant. But another advantage to a black and white business card design is that your cards will be significantly cheaper to print. You could even print yourself.
Pretty Business Cards
It is important to think of your target market when designing your cards. This business card design below features a floral water-colour design for a wedding specialist. Obviously the target audience is women, so this card’s pretty design will definitely get noticed by them. The use of the rings is also a good idea, to quickly convey what the business is about. But this design could also be used for an artist or florist.

But you could do something similar for a craft business, or any type of business that uses small-scale supplies that you could take a photo of.
Cute Business Cards
Sometimes cute works, as in this card for a dental center below. If the dental center was specifically for children, this card design would be even more appropriate, with a smiling tooth that makes the dentist seem less scary. The bright blue color even has a nursery-type feel.
One Color Business Card
This simplistic card below is one color, and the benefit of this is that one color business cards are much less expensive to print.
