The business card, as is well known, is an irreplaceable tool in the world of work, even in an increasingly digital context, when it comes to expanding business and contact networks and presenting itself in a simple, direct and effective. It is clear that taking care of the details in the creation of a perfect record is very important: if the way you present yourself will surprise your customers (or whoever receives the card) the chances of success will increase significantly.

To help you get those attractive and unique business cards that you would like to have so much, we tell you some of the latest trends in their design:

QR code cards

The QR codes are used to encode information in two dimensional spaces. We integrate the code into the card design and then just use any app to see all the information it saves.

Through the QR codes, the classic business card design will also have its current and multimedia part.


35 Impressive Examples Of Transparent and Waterproof Business Cards

This is one of the trends in business card design that has received the best reception, and that is being seen more lately.

We can find some designs with some opacity and others totally transparent, we will also see them in color or simply in black, but whatever the case, transparency has taken over business cards.

Another trend on this occasion we find the use of special textured paper, which carries the texts, and sometimes the logo, in relief. Or rather the opposite, since it is achieved by a less and less used type of artisanal printing, which uses pressure to mark the elements on the card. A design that is nice to play.

Folding cards

With this type of business card design we will have, instead of two, four faces available to offer relevant contact information and to play with our design.

This offers us many more possibilities to unleash our creativity, in addition to making sure that the information we put in them will not be overwhelming, however much it may be.

Background patterns

Who does not want a business card that attracts attention? Nothing to use a flat color as a background, now the patterns are taken, and if they are geometric and colorful, even better.

The design of business cards adapts to the times and general trends of design, and this time echoes one of the trends that we are seeing both in graphic and web design as in interior design and textile.


If you want them to contact you, what better way to say hello and start a conversation?
This is what we are seeing lately in business card design, a great “hello” written that stands up to a conversation, accompanied of course by contact information. They are close, original and trend.
