3D printing business cards can be a great way to advertise your company with a unique, creative flair. Possible customers or business partners will definitely be impressed!

Even if you aren’t looking to advertise your business, these models are great fun! They are quick and easy to print and reap a stunning result. Many of these models include a small space to put your information.

Perhaps the best part is that business cards are very small! This means low filament costs and print times.

Without further ado, let’s dive into five awesome 3D printable business cards!

A velociraptor is a genus of a dromaeosaurid theropod dinosaur, but today it is a business card. This card includes a lot of detail in a 3.5 x 5 in area, but it is easily printed by an FDM 3D printer in under twenty minutes. The finished print is sure to impress. Just imagine when it is put together!

This is, of course, a great print for anyone, but if you want to advertise your business with this card, the designer has you covered. The tail of the dino is widened for you to add your information. To do this, “simply extrude cut into the STL file after import. Do not cut through all. Best results found to be using a depth of around .4 to .5 mm.”

Who designed it? Cleven

Who printed it? Over 200 Thingiverse users have posted makes of this model! The prints speak for themselves. You will definitely not regret making this design.

This Touring Bike business card is another “print-flat-but-then-assemble” type of model. The design is optimized for FDM machines with a 0.4-mm nozzle. And you don’t have to worry about long print times. Twenty minutes and just a bit of filament later, and you have an epic business card!

This design also includes a small area in which to include your business information. So, simply customize, print, assemble, and wait for the “Wow!”

Who designed it? CyberCyclist

Who printed it? Though this model has no makes on Cults3D, the design is right behind the above velociraptor, with almost 200 Thingiverse makes.

This third model is very similar to the previous two but is definitely unique. After popping out the components and assembling them, you get a bolt-like mechanism that actually works! As such, it is perfect for anyone with a 3D printer who wants to makes something quick and fun.

If you want to share your information with these cards, simply add lettering to the small space in the lower lefthand corner. In under 30 minutes, you will have an impressive print!

Who designed it? U1W

Who printed it? Five makes have been posted of this model on Thingiverse. The results are impressive! Be sure to get your first layer right for this model. This will help you get the tighter clearances needed for the assembled bolt to work.

This business card is about as simple as simple can get. Via Customizer in Thingiverse, you can fully customize this business card to include your company’s name, your name, and your website. In way under an hour, you can customize, slice, and print this model!

It is important to get a nice first layer for this print, this will make for more detail lettering. You might also want to increase retraction to keep strings from getting in the small spaces.

Who designed it? TheCapitalDesign

Who printed it? The two makes on Thingiverse do not, by any means, point to any inferiority of this design.
