Inspired by the calligraphuck style above I find it's high time to invest in new businesscards. The ultimate creative challenge. A very small space to show off your creativity while leaving a lasting impression (and your phone number...hopefully).
Lots of places online also offer die-cut businesscards , so don't be a square stuck to one shape when you can come up with your own edge (pun very much intended, I had to!)
Make your shape stand out as much as the design. Perhaps the shape could even be the design-idea, like this card for a radio-host in Dubai. Make your card look like an old school music tape with two holes in the middle. Cut a little triangle indent to "highlight point" to your name. Even rounded corners or just one rounded corner will make your card stand out more. With the inexpensive printing options available today, there's no excuse for having a bad businesscard. None! Now get cracking.
