23 Cool Examples of Transparent Business Cards + Giveaway

Table of ContentsUpdated Oct 03, 2014

Remember when you were in college (maybe you still are) and you stressed to no end about your resume and portfolio?

You were all about getting it perfect. “Just right.”

It had to be impressive, but not too outlandish. Creative, but legible. Above all else, memorable.

Now, years later, you may not worry much about a resume anymore as you’re working to meet and win new clients (although listing freelance work on your resume is still a good idea).

But not much else has changed in how you should represent yourself. Should you be impressive? Check. Creative? Check. Memorable? Double check.

So today, we’re excited to partner with to give away 250 impressive, creative and memorable business cards.

What makes these cards so unique?

They’re transparent.

Which really opens your mind to some cool creativity.

For details on how to win the set of 250 cards, scroll to the bottom of this post.

But before we dish all the details, check out these really cool examples of what can be done when designing with clear plastic business cards.

  1. Rebecca Boyle says:

    My dog ate my last batch of cards. Perhaps the clear ones won’t be as appealing to her. Are they stronger than paper? Please, please, please let me win the business cards!

  2. I would like to win these because I think it would help me build a larger audience since they are so unique and rememberable!! I am also about to graduate with my graphic design degree and will be looking for work!!!

  3. I just graduated from college this May with a graphic design major, and– if you haven’t heard– the job search is a little tough. I made some business cards before I graduated, and chintzed out on my printer, so they look pretty awful. As I’ve been networking and going into interviews, I would love to be able to present a business card that I’m proud of and don’t feel embarrassed to hand over to a potential client or employer! The plastic cards are very clean and modern (like my design style), and will definitely stand out in a handful of cheap paper ones (like mine are now)!

    Also, side note: I subscribe to your newsletter, and have learned SO MUCH stuff that nobody ever taught me about in college about freelancing and other marketing strategies I can use as a designer. Thanks so much for helping me continue my education!

  4. Craig Brown says:

    I want to win because it beats paying for business cards ;-P

    Obviously these plastic cards are incredibly cool and will help make a lasting impression.

  5. Felicia B says:

    Bad Gyal Designs is my own freelance company created by coffee driven hunger to turn creative dreams into a well-designed reality! Being a freelance designer is something I decided to do this year, and it was the best decision I’ve ever made. The challenge of always finding a way to stand out is tough, but I do know that have an awesome business card is just one way to grab someone’s attention from an initial encounter. I am down to my last few business cards so these would be AMAZING! I NEED THEM!

    I believe in the power of design. I love coffee. I create awesome things.

  6. Now these beauties will fit nice and snug in my palm while I’m out & about hunting through the urban jungle for more clients.

  7. I would use these unique business cards to get a lasting reaction from the people I give them to and to also advertise your business as everyone will be asking me where I got them from ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. Steve Capell says:

    I would use these type of business cards to promote others to volunteer at a local prison.

  9. I’d like to win because I think the Dash cards in the post above are really cool!

  10. I was thinking to invest in plastic cards. There is something unique about them that leaves a lasting impression and hard for someone to throw out.

  11. Jay Kaushal says:

    Preston, thanks for this Giveaway. The cards are really elegant and can make a great first impression when you meet your clients. I have only one and genuine reason to win this contest. I have only few visiting cards left in my box that will run out in few weeks from now. So, craving to win this cool pack of cards is understandable ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. this would be awesome for me. I just made my own logo the other day in class.

  13. Terrica S. says:

    I would love to win the 250 transparent cards because as a custom stationary business/graphic designer I believe these would be a good way to advertise and provide an innovative product to our clients. We are always looking for a new approach to design and printing to keep our products offerings fresh and creative. Thanks for this awesome opportunity and for this blog post providing the resources to be introduced to this company.

  14. We’re about to launch our new busy-ness and these would be an absolutely fantastic addition to the start!

    I even tweeted and would’ve subscribed if I wasn’t already…

    Wish me luck!

  15. The recent public announcement of my freelance design business’ launch came much sooner than anticipated with the acquisition of a “big account.” As a result, I’m frantic in filling in the gaps — one of them being business cards.

    To win an order of these amazing clear cards would prove to be a boon to me and my business identity!

  16. I’d like to win to use it as a showcase product. This would let me give them to clients so they can have it in hand and see how great their card can look as a transparent card.A great little advertising vehicle.

  17. I would love to win, as I think with the internet as a great work tool that spans over all jobs and services these days, we need to be more transparent. Transparency is everything now in b. This would just reinforce the idea of “transparency” (quite literally) and frankly…how cool would it be to design something for a transparent card!!!

    …..And now in the words of the donkey in the original Shrek movie….”Pick me! Pick me!”

  18. Rob T Duvall says:

    I’ve been a fan of vellum for a long time, and this transparent substrate seems like an even more versatile way to play up light and opacity. Would love to give it a try myself!

  19. I need some new cards, these are really cool, now all I have to do is think up a design and focus on what I want to convey, design, copy-writing, editing, custom forms, or all of it.

  20. Carmie Ciampa says:

    Now over 90, but still designing logos, business cards, brochures, books and book covers . . . after many years as a freelancer huddled over my drawing board, using pen and ink, brushes and paints, I now create using Adobe CS6 on my MacBook Pro . . . . LOVE IT! Would also LOVE to create a dynamic design for a transparent business card . . . they are gorgeous! Love the way they pick up any background, texture, etc, they encounter . . . who would want to put them away?

    Thank you for this opportunity to enter a fun contest ๐Ÿ™‚

  21. I would love to win some of these business cards. I could just order them on my own, but winning would be so much better…

  22. I’m a designer and am always changing up my business cards! These would let me do so much more with my creativity.

  23. Nabbeela Dewji says:

    Since starting my own creative business in 2012, I have brainstormed between engagements for branding concepts that clearly convey the multiple – but distinctive – perspectives that infuse my work.
    I finally developed the coolest visual concept and have cleared the last 2 weeks of this December (my birthday month!) to finalize this new logo.
    What better Christmas/B-day present could I get than a medium that is so beautifully aligned with the idea of multiple perspectives interacting to create new images?

  24. I’d like to win some transparent business cards because they look cool and I’m going to need new cards as soon as I finish the redesign of my site and the upgrade to my logo ๐Ÿ™‚

  25. My mind is already spinning with the possibilities of what I’d like to design on a transparent business card. I’d love the opportunity to be creative using this format.

  26. Jessica Salinas says:

    Love these cards – being able to create a design that turns a regular business card into something interactive like the sunglasses or the camera view examples. Definitely a memorable piece. As a mixed media artist and a graphic designer I would love to have a business card like this.

  27. Jennifer Simpson says:

    I would love to win a set of transparent business cards – how unique, the creative possibilities are endless! Thanks for the inspiration and giveaway!!

  28. I would love to win and be able to show these fantastic cards off to potential clients just a real creative way to show my talents!.. and for these puppies to spark some inspiration when creating cards for my clients ๐Ÿ™‚

  29. Hi !!
    I want win because i’m photographer and i don’t have cards !!!!

  30. Joshua Allen Donini says:

    Thanks for the contest!
    I don’t have business cards. This would be just the motivation needed to finally make it happen.
    Always inspired by the posts… I need to step it up.

  31. jack born says:

    Very clever promotional idea, Preston — well done!

    Thank you so much for the steady stream of E-Newsletters — filled with great advice that have been a weekly business focus/meeting for me (a one-man freelance design company). Reading your E-Newsletters have given me a good excuse to pause and consider new ways of making my freelance business better. You’ve helped me improve many different aspects of the business — everything from how to write better proposals to what to do when there’s a client who’s making ridiculous demands.

    Here’s what I just tweeted about those awesome looking business card designs: @designblender found 23 cool transparent business card designs, see: #gdb #design #giveaway


  32. These plastic business cards are revolutionary! They are incredible and very creative! People will definitely NOT throw this away, they will keep it forever in their pockets! I would like to get the opportunity to print plastic business cards of my own so my networking showcases my passion for design!

  33. Eric Michalowsky says:

    I have recently updated my logo and I’d LOVE to see how it would look on a clear business card, which I have to get anyway…

    Good luck to me!! Break my leg!!


  34. Karen Kilpatrick says:

    I’d LOVE to have some of these not only to represent my freelance design business in a unique & memorable way, but also to help sell clients on the idea of going for quality printing rather than the default cheap digitally printed cards. Ugh. I haven’t smelled fresh ink at a press check in ages.

  35. Would love to win these – just ran out of business cards and was working on a new design!

  36. Marina Phillips says:

    I’m currently re-starting/restructuring my business, (we had a serious illness and death in the family and things went off course for awhile). These business cards would be an awesome boost – and they just look really neat! ๐Ÿ™‚ Great blog – thanks for the information!

  37. Joel Wakitsch says:

    I’d love some transparent business cards because the are unique and catch attention, just like my work. Enough said.

  38. I want to win because I’m a 1 person shop that’s struggling to advance. It doesn’t seem to matter what blog I read, what tutorials I try, or what freebies I download.. It feels like I’m constantly 1 step forward and 2 steps back.

    The only business cards I currently have are freebies from an online freelance site and these would blow them away.

  39. I would love to win 250 transparent cards because what better way to leave a lasting impression than with see-through cards?! As I venture out to more seminars, workshops, and creative conventions, I definitely want to make powerful connections and first impressions, and have the business card worth keeping in a crowd of creative entrepreneurs. =)
