Wallet-sized company credentials serve as a reminder of the establishment's specialty, and with branding like these Carabiner business cards, you're sure to be remembered.

This graphic design project was executed by Staci Paul of the University of Wisconsin-Stout and reflects no real company. It is, however, the careful thought that went into the run of pint-sized profiles that makes this undertaking worth repeating for a real business.

The professional IDs are meant to match a metaphorical service called Carabiner Outdoor Connections, which aims to encourage an appreciation of nature locally. Keeping with this environment-loving theme, the creator chose stained birch plywood as her printing medium and cut 80 cards with beveled edges and an engraved logo. The addition of paper labels give the Carabiner business cards an intricate tactile quality.
