Our customers want to make a lasting first impression, so we asked the Minted Community to create the freshest, most beautiful business cards in the world. Minted designers delivered, creating a diverse and chic collection of all types of business cards, from mommy calling cards to charming feminine designs to sleek and serious cards. The winning designs below each stood out in one of our special prize categories. Congratulations, winners!
For Him Award for the card design that will most appeal to our male customers
“Clean & Dapper” by Morgan Ramberg
Morgan strikes the perfect balance between whimsical and to-the-point with “Clean & Dapper.” The icons and pops of yellow lend a little fun to this card that we’re sure men will love handing out (and it’s even gotten a stamp of approval from the men in the Minted office).
Runners Up: “Totes Photes” by Misa | “Makermen” by Peahen Press | “Clean & Simple” by peony papeterie | “Skinny Type” by Hooray Creative
Out of the Box Award for a business card that you wouldn’t see on other online sites.
“Vital Stats” by Stacey Hill
Runners Up: “The Artist” by M. Lee | “Dude, here’s my card.” by Shannon Patterson Design | “Golden Writer” by A Little Big Picture | “Headliner” by Peahen Press
Foil-Pressed Award for the business card design with elements that truly shine in foil-pressed metallics.
“Have a Heart” by Sarah Wrede
Foil will really show off Sarah’s sweet, handdrawn heart! The white space in “Have a Heart” makes the design feel so airy, and the soft pink backer coordinates perfectly without being “matchy-matchy.”
Runners Up: “Peachy polkadot” by Hanke Arkenbout | “galette” by chocomocacino | “Golden Twig” by Erin Wallace
Curvilinear Award for the best design that puts the name or customizable text on a curvilinear path
“With the ribbon” by Jazmin Barrientos Marquez
We love the movement in Jazmin’s calling card, from the twisting ribbon and perfectly fitted text to the dotted line swirling in heart shapes in the background. The unusual color palette of aqua, orange, and red makes the design even more dynamic.
Runner Up: “Very Krafty” by Sarah Wrede
Great Shape Award for the best card design using one of Minted’s unique new die-cut shapes
“Paper” by Susan Brown
Susan elevates the kraft paper tag with this design. The playful type and simple black, gold, and kraft color combination makes “Paper” really pop (not to mention the adorable gold hole reinforcer!).
Runners Up: “Playful Grid” by Wondercloud Design | “Pretty Ink Wreath” by Jess Jensen
Clean and Simple Award for the best uncluttered and modern design
“agnolotti” by chocomocacino
Gerrie shows off her knack for clean design in “agnolotti.” The subtle chalkboard background and pop of pink beautifully soften the design without detracting from its modern style
Runners Up: “Half” by Susan | “Minimalist Chic” by guess what? | “Modern Highlight” by Chryssi Tsoupanarias
Best Mommy (or Daddy) Calling Card Award for the best design that helps Minted customers set playdates for their children in style
“Mom Calling Card” by Christina Novak
Mom takes center stage in Christina’s mommy calling card. We love how the banner weaves so effortlessly through the letterforms and that the inline typeface gives us a little peek of the banner behind the letters.
