How do I create a business card that's loud enough to make people remember me without coming off as tacky?

And how do I condense everything into one card? I want to say two very different things:

>I am a minister - I preach, do weddings, baptisms, etc.
>I am a stock trader

How do I go about this?

I've always liked the ever folding cards. Bit of extra work. But more surfaces?
(not sure if it fits your work though)

Why not just have 2 different business cards? One for the minister stuff and one for the stock trader stuff.

•They were investment bankers, not stock traders.
•Those cards are generic. Generic cards don't get you remembered.
•That was a movie.

I'd suggest this. Display each card in an appropriate place. Carry both on you and hand out the appropriate one based on who you're selling to or where you're promoting yourself.

The last thing I'd want as a consumer is a card for a stock trader also trying to sell me a preacher.

If you absolutely insist on a card containing both, I'd consider a double sided card with stock trader on one side and preacher on the other. The folding cards are excessive in most cases and completely unnecessary, not to mention they take up more space in a wallet.

Cool. This is probably a better idea.

An electrician and a plumber I get it… they go together. Or maybe a mechanic that’s also a cab driver. But a stock broker/trader and a preacher? Christ….that’s a funny combo man I couldn’t resist trying to make a card for both.

You need 2 cards. The professions are totally different.

Their just random photoshop templates I've picked up over the years. I think they are from graphicburger and/or pixeden. I tweaked them a bit though to make them gold on white and shit. If you google like business card templates shit comes up. The actual cross and type were done in illustrator then dropped on a .psd mock.

First rule of business card club, don't try and cram everything onto the card.

Have you considered having a BC on a non-standard substrate. We do metal cards, and lenticular 3D cards, they costs a fucking fortune, but people generally hang onto them.
