Business Card Creator for the Un-Creative


Fast, Easy and Shiny, oooh!

If you’re tired of the same 10 business card templates or having someone else’s logo splashed all over the back of your cards, check out Business Card Star. There are two options: free (print out a pdf so you can print your own at home) or paid (order a set to be professionally printed and shipped to you).

This inexpensive solution is great not just for your calling card but for single property cards (“ Rehabbed 3/2, 1877sf”), silly cards for conferences (“twitter me timbers @laniar”) or coupon cards (“dinner for 2 on your local Realtor”).

You can design your own card or use the card designer which has a super easy interface that even grandma can figure out. First, pick your template based on how serious or whimsical your brand is, then alter the colors, font size and type, add text to the back of the card and voila, you’re off and running!

Here’s a sample:

Here is a kind of whimsical one I whipped up in about 3 minutes, show us what *you* come up with!

    I’m sure many “uncreative” people will appreciate this. Your 3 minute card looks great and clearly shows the potential of this tool. Thanks for sharing.

    The sample link doesn't work. Is it connected correctly?

      John, in 2009 it worked, I'll see if I can track it down. It was a pretty simple card 🙂
