Amazing 5,000 Business Cards Giveaway by YGG & Orange32

Written by Erz on Friday, October 19, 2007

YGG and Orange32 are having a smashing contest. They will be giving away 5,000, yes 5,000 business cards to a lucky blogger who writes the best post (as judged by them) about business cards and links back to the contest post and to the Orange32’s website. Contest ends 19th October so hurry if you’re keen.

I’m a little late on this but better late than never. What’s so interesting about a business card? I’ve always been fascinated with the innovative business cards that people come up with. Here are a few tips I gathered from some of these ‘eccentric’ card twisters on how to make your business card stand out (disclaimer: I won’t be responsible if you lose all your clients this way!):-

If nobody knows what the position listed on your card means, you’ve succeeded. One guy called himself ‘King of wonderland’. He was a welfare officer.

Don’t go with the flow – be creative. I once got a card which was totally blank except for the words in fine print – see overleaf. On the back was just a website address. Crappy you might say but I was curious and checked out his website which had his full CV on it. I’m sure I wasn’t the only one.

Everyone’s a CEO now. Call yourself a CEO like it’s a generic term. I saw a guy who had CEO and in very small print – office management – basically just an office assistant.

Make em’ 3-D. Talking about birthday cards, I saw a business card which looked like one – three dimensional – really eye-catching.

Have sound! I’ve not seen one but a friend suggested that you include a small audio chip to the card which plays back the details on the card when you press it – great for the handicapped as well.

So if you’re up for it, throw away your old-fashioned business cards and get your creative juices flowing!
