New Year, New Biz Card: 4 Reasons to Update Your Card AND 10 Fab Biz Card Designs!

liz biz card

As you work your way through your New Year’s resolutions, here’s a quick question: when was the last time you updated your business card?

If it’s been 3 or more years, put this item on your “to do” list now! Why?

  1. You Are Constantly Evolving – As you change, so should your card. I bet that your card is no longer an accurate representation of who you are and the service you offer.
Biz cards are critical as it’s often the ONLY item your prospects ever feel!
  1. The Social Media World is Changing – If your card still has Myspace or Friendster on it, you’re still stuck in the wrong era! Up-to-date social media signifies that you have a relevance to today’s world.
  2. Designs Get Old – Note that I’m suggesting the layout needs a revision, not necessarily that your logo does. Great logos should last for years. As the late, great designer, Massimo Vignelli said of his design of the Bloomingdale’s logo: “If you do it right, it will last forever.”
  3. Biz Cards Are Paramount to Your Brand – Despite efforts to make biz cards obsolete, I believe they are critical to your brand as it is often the only item your prospects see and feel. Invest in this one item and you’ll see an exponential ROI.  

Below are the top 10 biz cards from my personal stack; I like these because they:

  • Reflect their brand DNA
  • Stand out via the competition
  • Get noticed
  • Showcase creativity – critical to avoiding “genericide”
  • Remain relevant to their business

  1. LOVE your new card, and those others are lots of fun, too! 🙂

  2. Thanks to Zulli Creative (Susan Bateman) for the new card.

  3. Did Susan do Mary Jo’s Blue Thong Society card, or are these cards you’ve collected. I love the bark card.

  4. Susan did my card, but doesn’t typically do simply biz-cards as she designs better, higher-end projects.

    I don’t know who designed Blue Thong or the bark card.

  5. thanks for the love on my business card! It might be worth posting a picture of the other side as well, so they can see that the reason the die cut works is that it allows me to use it on both sides of the card for the logo because M is a letter that reads both directions. 🙂

  6. Oh, thanks Den;good point!
