Unlike ordinary business cards that people are handing us everywhere, custom shaped business cards can attract our attention both to the created design as well as the card’s content.
The creative design can be achieved by using elements such as typeface, colors, and effects. However, these elements are framed with the rectangle shape of the business card. In custom shaped business cards, the design can extend the rectangle’s borders. This change in the card’s layout plays a great role in attracting the viewer to examine the business card and learn more about its content.
The card’s shape can take the outline of the product or represent the service. Some card’s designs simulate 3D shapes and objects. These layouts are hard to achieve because they require special cuts in the business card paper to create the final layout, but they can make a very good impression, especially when you are promoting a product at fairs or exhibitions.
One of the challenges that designers face when they think of creating custom shaped business cards is imagining the idea and turning it into a real product. The easiest way to imagine what the card will look like is to create a draft shape of it on a piece of paper and use this paper to figure out what the final card will look like.
