    dentist business card is the best one! so minimalistic, yet so strong message at the same time! it’s one of those rare times when I can’t believe someone could come up with the idea like this!

  • jenny

    They all are so cool and creative!

  • anonymous

    yep, that “Meat Business Card” is really communicating mixed messages, or I just don’t get it. By the way, it may be only a sample of a Meatcard as a product (you can get one for $29). Besides that, these cards are creativity overload!

  • derek

    in response to #7 I would say that sometimes it’s better to keep honesty for yourself!

    Re: #4, the meat card. It’s a reference to American Psycho. “Murders and executions…”
