Business cards have, unlike other paper products, taken a dramatic upsurge in the last few years. The internet is full of creative, unique, and sometimes bizarre takes on the tradition of business cards. But what if you’re business is on the bloody side – maybe you’re a horror author or professional monster slayer. We present ten alternative business card designs for the horror lover and entrepreneur.
Cards that use textures from actual gravestones.
Riva’s partner is a horror writer, so she created these fitting business cards for him. His blog is called Welcome to Aven, so the ‘A’ on the front is inspired by the fonts found in cemeteries. Interestingly, the texture on the cards was created from gravestones located near the artist’s home.
These badass metal business cards
My Metal Business Card specialise in, well…metal business cards. These awesome zombie themed cards are made with stainless steel, and the design is chemically-etched onto the metal.
A business card that acts as a threat.
So this one’s pretty dark. It’s the card of a debt collection agency, warning potential clients of the injuries they risk if they don’t keep up their payments. Gruesome stuff, and the cards look pretty awesome – we’d just rather they were used to promote…anything else.
Blood bag business cards
These cards are designed by Victoria Vaughan, a graphic designer from the UK. These are red liquid/fluid business cards that move around between the transparent back and front side.
These simple, but effective round cards.
Chris Sands business cards feature a minimalistic zombie hand against a full moon. The round shape might be unusual, and difficult to fit in your wallet, but it looks awesome.
Business cards with Jack o Lantern carvings.
I have no idea what kind of business Jeff owns, but it’s Halloween all year round and that sounds good.
Pizza gets spooky
Hell Pizza apparently serve some pretty scary pizza, judging by these unique coffin shaped business cards. The artist behind these also created similarly spooky menus for the company.
Super cute 3D zombies
Each one of these cards is a cut-out-and-keep zombie, printed onto a MOO Business Card. They each come with a little cut-out stand, and they’re really cute…for zombies.
Negative space skulls
We’ve seen business cards on pretty much every material – but these wooden skulls are beautiful.
A card that kills vampires on-the-go.
Who says business cards can’t double as weapons. These cards feature a pop-out stake, for all your vampire killing needs.
