Thinking of getting new business cards? We think it's time to ditch your old-fashioned ones and go square.
I've never been a fan of square cards until I saw one from a movie. The first square business card that really made an impression to me was from Hitch. Alex Hitchens is a professional dating consultant, and there was this scene where he met up with a potential client and handed over this small black square card. Apparently it was his business card, and that small black business card on his fingers for me was a symbol of who he is professionally: simple, stylish and successful.
Aside from the obvious advantage of size - so small it only eats up a portion of your wallet - it's the sleekness and cutting edge design of the card that makes square business cards stand out. They are great especially if you have a unique brand style, and they are customizable and offer more design and printing options.
Moo thinks square is the new cool because it's a proof of you being a "thinking-outside-of-the-box" individual - and we couldn't agree more. You can check out Moo's square card templates and avail of the discounts that they're currently offering for printing your business cards.
If you're feeling uninspired and thinking of a new look for your business card, here are some of the square card designs that we think really work and that you can try as your own.
The design ideas are limitless and you can experiment with whatever type of branding that you want. Whatever industry you find youself in and no matter what type of business you have, you can find a square card design suitable to your needs.

Vistaprint is best value for money, i've been using them for businesscards/flyers and stationary. They never let me down.
I ordered a T-shirt for my son from Cafepress, but im dissapointed by the quality. The T-shirt was supposed to be 100% cotton as stated on their website, but it's not: it contains 5% spandex which is really hot and uncomfortable. This was a dissapointing experience with Cafepress.
Snapfish is converting to a new site, and I had to communicate with at least four-five different CS reps. I admire people who can speak multiple languages, but this became ridiculous.
They all were obviously using the same script (e.g., "I am more than happy to help you with that. Please kindly hold on the chat for a minute, meanwhile I look up the information."), and in the end, none were able to help me. I really wanted to communicate with a manager, not about the CS reps, but about the problems with Snapfish's new site.
My problem stems from the conversion of classic Snapfish to the new Snapfish. I started a photo book on another photo site (with no problems). Because a family member downloaded photos I want to include to Snapfish, I had to start over on Snapfish. Two of my images wouldn't download, (requiring 2-3 chats before someone finally figured out what to do), the size/format of the book I want is not available in the new Snapfish (which I learned after starting it on classic Snapfish and another chat), and photos shared on the new Snapfish cannot be transferred/shared with the classic Snapfish (another chat). So I either needed to use a different book (more expensive) or not include the photos.
Apparently, these features will be available once the new Snapfish is complete. Why on earth would any company introduce a new version before all features are available or before the bugs are worked out--beta version? I'm ordering prints of the photos on the new Snapfish and will scan them to include in my photo book on the other site. Then I'm done with Snapfish
Inkgarden offers the most flexibility with their design tools. You can actually save your design to complete it later, and their tools allow you to exactly position where the design is located on the product that you create. Adding text is easy, you can use multiple designs, choose if you want to use single or double sided, etc, etc.
Product quality was satisfying, and customer service was helpful. I will definately use them again.
This is the last time i used Snapfish! Their customer service is worthless. Their employees barely speak decent English!
I had so much time invested in creating a nice looking photo book: the order turned out a lot more expensive then intially stated, the customer service sucks. I will never use them again, nor recommend anyone to use them.
