Get ready to rev up your resume and add new life to your business cards. When it comes time to getting creative with your card stock, don’t forget the power of photography. On a business card you can leave a great impression with a single image — one worth a thousand words, or perhaps even more.
You don’t need to simply emblazon your card with your likeness. Here are 11 examples that use images that are artistic, fruity, food-related, and offer several photographic options for business cards that use photos for an added pop.
1. A black-and-white picture gets a pop of brightness from an apple and banana, showcasing an easy photo concept that’s super fresh.
2. Keep your foray into photo-based business cards from falling flat by bringing things up a level.
3. I mean, who doesn't love a whiskered kitten that is too cute to pass by.
4. These close-up pictures grab attention without a chunk of text getting in your way.
5. The scarlet lips give an intense feel to the business card, which is just enough to make it a compelling card.
6. This business card finds a way to use a photo as a backdrop for a business card with a well-balanced font.
7. Another two-sided example grabs the eye on one side, thanks to the noses of some furry friends. On the flip side (pun intended), a simple white background with a muted, two-text layout is all about business.
8. Show flexibility with this punchy photo card that lets your fingers do the talking (and walking). It's a great way to have fun with a picture and simple die-cut design all at once.
9. This bespectacled image draws the eye in with an unexpected cutout framework—professional but not too serious.
10. A transparent card pairs well with a unique photo, and the small smattering of a foliage graphic gives the card an extra boost, blending the image into the backdrop.
11. This example doesn’t just stick to one picture. Meshing these images is repetitive without being overbearing, thanks to similar tones and a fun puzzle-like layout.
Grabbing, well-focused, fun, inviting.
If you want to rethink your business card philosophy, think through your own lens and find a photo that speaks to your intended audience. Check with your printer to see what their specs for printing photography business cards are—and walk away with a card that says more than a handful of words could ever say.
