If you are tight on budget but need thousands of business cards to promote your products or services , then having a hand stamped or rubber stamped business card is your best option. As many people would say, rubber stamps are a poor man’s letterpress. Although the initial cost of ordering stamps may be similar to a traditional business card, once you have the stamps, you can already produce as many cards as you want without the need to reorder. Besides drastically cutting printing costs, having stamped business cards is also one way to make your business cards standout and memorable. It gives the owner of these cards the impression of being creative and someone who defy convention and who are a bit more avant garde in their thinking. To give you an idea about this type of business cards, here are 15 extraordinary stamped business cards that we found from around the web. I hope you will find them inspiring!
