People are flooded with so many daily interactions via social networks, e-mail, over the phone and in person. Don't be forgettable, when you hand out a business card have it say something unique about you and your business to the recipient. A creative application of die-cutting can transform a business card from a plain-old rectangular paper to a conversation piece. Here are some inspiring die-cut business cards from around the web. I chose these cards because they don't just use the die-cut for the heck of it. In these designs, the die-cut is the focal point of the card and ties into what the business or brand stands for.
