11 Round Die Cut Business Card Designs

Inspiration August 19, 2009

When I heard that UPrinting.com is planning to offer round die cut business cards, I decided to scour the internet for some awesome design examples. I’ve always been a fan of round business cards, because they are so different from the rectangular cards that we are used to. Making an impression is often about differentiating yourself from the crowd and your business card is a good place to start.

    These are great! I haven’t seen many of these cards before so thanks for that. The Java one is very cool.

    Awesome! You don’t see completely round ones too often.

    I opted for the rounded corners on mine too, check them out,

    These are gorgeous. I wonder if the people you give them to will get annoyed since they may not fit in a wallet I am guessing. Still beautiful designs though…

    They look like coasters….

    very nice! they do seem a bit thicker than the average mind! but they also definitely stand out above the rest. could get some really interesting contacts using these cards.

    These are really nice. This really offers designers a greater chance to get even more creative with their card designs.

    I think die cuts are always a nice touch on any project. It makes people want to feel it, making it very interactive.

    Really nice. The juggling one should have a cut from the edge to the centre. Attach 2 at a 90 degree angle and you have a ball. Repeat twice more and juggling ensues.

    cool! thanks for posting these.

    These are not practical at all, most people keep business cards in there wallets or a business card holder.

    Absolutely beautiful. Thanks for sharing these.

    I wonder if the benefits of being original are out weighed by the awkwardness of having an unusual shape?
    I’ve been toying with the idea of beer mat style cards just for something different.

    These are fun to look at (love the color schemes of Chm Systems, and Basta) but I have to agree that they are not practical because they do not fit within a wallet or card holder. I have a collection of designers’ cards and keep them all in a Chipotle gift card holder and a round one would throw off the groove. However I am digging the half business cards, where they are cut horizontally so they still fit in a wallet or card holder but still bring about a unique, memorable look.

    these are really cool :) I don’t have a round business card but I now want to design one. Thanks for sharing.

    very cool stuff. but they remind me of coasters. or POGs.

    Nice cards. I have always said that these types of die-cut cards are very good for trade shows. Probably not practicle when you are doing your normal networking.

    These are really cool, I would love to design a round business card.

    For those of you that think a business card has to fit in a wallet or card holder, check out this video:

    I think they’re definitely funkier – maybe a standard size biz card with rounded edges or other die cuts might be more practical. At least they’ll fit in the standard credit card sized wallet slots.

    Who says the round cards can’t fit into a wallet or card holder? All you have to do is have the right height to the circle and BAM you’re in a wallet! Maybe 1/2 a mm taller just for an added impact…

    What was the quality like on the rounded corners? I had some some made from overnightprints.com and they were all ragged. I feel like I wasted my money.

    Where can I get some of these printed. I’m working with a client who runs hockey clinics for kids, and we want to make one like a hockey puck. I need to know where I can get these printed and if there’s a template available. Thanks for your help.
