This is a perfect example of how to make creative, practical and effective use of Kraft colored papers. The cards utilize full-bleed, full color printing on one side and leaves the color and texture of the stock exposed on the other. Having the earthy-kraft paper untouched on the backside speaks to the brands sustainable mission without saying a word.

This cute, bite-sized custom shaped business card caught our eye right away, even before we saw the adorable illustration. Our imagination tells us that one of her make-believe characters has come to life to chomp down on the corner and curiously give credence to the warning that the name clearly states.

Daddy’s Dogs is the hot spot for hotdogs and late night munchies if you are in the Nashville, Tennessee area. Sean Porter (aka “Big Daddy”) and his friends are serving up gourmet all-beef hotdogs with fresh, local made buns and a generous portion of toppings til 2:30am. Whether you’re a Lone Wolf that just likes ketchup, mustard & relish or you like your wiener “Seattle Style” loaded up with cream cheese, grilled onion and sriracha, Daddy’s will have a dog to satisfy your hunger. They even have vegan dogs if the standard fair is too meaty for your tastes.
Visit one of their four locations or contact them to inquire about catering your next event or office party.
The color selection used in these informal, pocket-friendly contact cards immediately makes us think of our favorite condiment – yellow mustard. The caricature of “Big Daddy” is a spot-on, spitting image illustration of the founder, all in a fun and clean aesthetic. The minimal information layout on the backside is super easy to read after an evening partying hard, and you won’t have bent corners when you find them tomorrow in yesterdays dirty clothes!

Sample a wide variety of flavors at their taproom or pick some up from select retailers or seasonal farmers markets and special events.
The contrast from front-to-rear is striking and the subdued monochromatic color theme of the background pattern makes the clean (and honestly very well done) logo prominent and impactful. Bringing a splash of the same style of illustration to the backside with the contact information communicates the brand’s playful identity in stellar fashion.

These ultra-thick business cards have a rugged build and killer design. The vertically read type and purposefully chosen fonts hint at the asian fare on the menu. The growling bear is the perfect hip-mascot to visually communicate the restaurant’s brand.
