Transformable business cards, interactive fitness cards and stretchy business cards. Today we hunt: CRAFTY SELFVERTISING - Sprint Firsts in Self-Promotion

4. With slogans like “If you see anybody that knows me, tell them I said hi,” “Full of antioxidants” and “Tentacles of awesomeness,” these pop-up business cards are the bee's knees.

3. Want to boast about how social media savvy you are? These Twitter business cards make sure that everyone knows how many followers you have.

2. The days of simple business cards are over and ones with planetary gears have taken over. While this is a cool idea, this DIY project doesn't lend itself well to bulk orders in tight timeframes.

1. These dazzling thermo-sensitive business cards are made by a French communications agency called 'Mumure.' Now people have incentive to warm up to you and your company.
