10 Geeky Business Cards

This is a guest post from D. Salmons over at TestFreaks - website for real geeks, where you can find everything from dvd players to wii games

One of the ways of getting your business (or yourself) out there to the masses is with business cards. Whether you're passing them out at conventions, conferences or business lunches, your business card can make a great first impression.

Some of the most innovative, creative business cards just so happen to be the geekiest. So check out these 10 geeky business cards that are sure to leave a lasting impression:

Since most of us Google companies and people to find out the information we want, the best way of letting people know who "You" are, is to create a Google profile. If you don't have a Google account - set one up and fill out your Google profile.

The Cardapult


The "Cardapult" unfolds into a working catapult. Created by mechanical engineer Bryce Bell of Cardnetics ... he gives a step-by-step tutorial so you can do-it-yourself.

Spirograph


Bring back memories of childhood with this cool Spirograph business card. Adafruit also gives instructions on how to create your own.

Why not create a custom shaped business card... like these 3D Glasses. Definitely not your average business card.

Saving my favorite for last. Bringing out the child in all of us are the Lego employee's business cards. A little miniature Lego of yourself - how awesome is that?!?!

If these business cards don't inspire you to create a unique and, well... geeky business card, I'm not sure what will. Just have fun with it. No one will soon forget you, I'm sure.

I have to agree with "Business Card design Ideas" comment. Very innovative idea on the M++, but the costs for producing those is something that would make me go back to or stick with paper cards.

Also love the twitter card. Great design, beautifully done.

I like the M++ card but it looks like it's going to be really expensive to produce more than ten of those. And a set back will be you really have to take care not to get the part that attaches to the usb scratched or it might not work. Really nice idea anyway.

Thanks for this post. Business cards these days leave deep impressions as the first calling card to your business. I remember visiting a commpany in Singapore which comprise many separate loosely associated business units - each with a very distinct design (yet still associated to the same group) and the rather interesting designations like "Lady General", "Chief Travel Bug" etc... :)
