Alt Business Cards - Best Letterpress, Black & White, and Color & Shape

The business card invasion is still going strong at my house. I have cards coming up the wazoo and I don’t even mind! There are so many beautiful cards and I can’t help but just stare at them. This is the last card roundup I’ll do for Alt 2013 and this one is a doozy. Seriously. There are billions of cards I’m about to show you. Let’s start with the letterpress, shall we?

A few of my faves (from the top):

Although letterpress cards are expensive, they are extremely durable and sweet. Letterpress has always been my favorite print style. Can you see why?

Coasters. Color. Blind impressions. These cards did not disappoint. I’m currently sitting next to them right now and it is taking me twice as long to write this post because I’m getting distracted by the beauty! Crap!

And now the cool and chic black & white cards:

These are for the hip and cool peeps that I wish I was a part of. But I’m not cool. So I’ll just admire these guys from afar. People added gold foil, cute sheepy prints, or just really baller pins. And it totally works.

I am in love with all the black and white. They are so chic and simple and they definitely make a statement.  Alt Business Cards - Best Letterpress, Black & White, and Color & Shape

This one is so lovely. It’s so simple. I die a little every time I look at it.

And now we move on to the fun and colorful cards! These ones make me happy every time I look at ‘em. There’s no rule for the color choice or style you use. These people just went with what described them and it totally paid off. I mean… c’mon.

I can’t handle the color. I am so impressed at everyone who attended Alt and all of the though you put into your cards. Amazing!

The above were some of my fave wooden cards. Yeah. People used wood. So incredible.

If you gave me a card, just know that it will never be thrown away. I will admire it until the day I die.

    Many many thanks for including L&P in this gorgeous biz card round-up, Lexy! I spy a few of my faves are in there (& even some clients too!). I was bowled over by the biz card creativity this year at ALT — yours is included in that category! What could next year possibly bring?? I’m already excited to find out!

    Love this roundup, kitten! I have to say, I think the VSCO cards and Brittni’s were two of my very faves this year. Simple, but with crazy cool design work. Loved ‘em.

      Wood. I know. I wanted wooden cards but they were so expensive and the turnaround was super tight for what I needed! Ack!
