There is a principle called the Triangle of Truth in business. Each side of the triangle corresponds with a different value. One side is called “Fast,” one side “Cheap,” and the last “Good.” The principle states that no matter which two sides you choose, you cannot have the third. If something is fast and cheap, it won’t be good.

Making a die-cut business card will cost more than the average card. However, it will certainly make you stand out from the rest. Here are a few examples of die-cut business cards for your inspiration.

Die-cut business cards are far more interesting and, in many ways, more relevant than the standard rectangular, plain card stock. These cards may cost a bit extra (and may take some more time at the printers), but consider it an investment in your future.

      Great to hear that, Marsha. Don’t give up! Creating die cut cards is not as hard as it looks and will set you apart from the rest. Good luck!

  2. Great article, I’ve just had my cards made and it was helpful to have pages like this in the process.
    It was proving particularly hard to achieve what I wanted but it was good know what can be done.
