Hey everyone!
Not a pro designer myself or anything but wouldn't say I'm completely useless in design.
Just wondering what makes a good business card as i'm completely lost. If anyone could give advice or post their own business card up(for me to see,not copy) that would be great!!

For inspiration you might want to check out some good design books. Communication Arts, Graphis (they have volumes dedicated to corp identity), the One Show, etc.

Here's one good resource for design books:
