Some handsome artist business cards

I have way more business cards from artists than I can keep up with. At my Art Marketing Action workshops, I have notebooks out with all kinds of printed samples from artists. It's always a big hit to see what other artists are doing.

With permission, I share these with you today.

from Laura K. Aiken and Simple Mosaics:


from Ann Cunningham, who calls herself a “tactile artist” and creates works meant to be touched and experienced by the visually impaired (as well as the rest of us), a card with Braille (barely visible as dots under her name):

from photographer Jim Digby, who prints his cards on a beautiful watercolor paper:


from painter Daniel Bahn, a former graphic designer who has done a bang-up job with his marketing material (I have found that very few fine artists can do good visual design):

And from Laurie McCarriar and Gingerprint (Laurie also has a strong design background and has designed her own cards):

  1. After doing your class I decided to remake my cards. I did like what I had however I had to change details so I decided to simplify the design. I got my new cards back from the printers this week and I am trilled. “Stylish” is the main comment I get which makes me glad I redesigned. Our printed media is so important and worth the time and expense to get it right.

  3. I recently designed some business cards that have a mini-portfolio of work on the back. As a painter, it seems important to have images of my artwork on my card.
