Even in the era of smartphones and digital address books, I still maintain a classy business card is a must for every guy. If you don't currently have a job where you need one, here's hoping you have passions or a lifestyle that needs communicated...and remembered.

When you work at home, there is no dress code. The only rule in my office is, well, make sure you put on pants before 9:00a. Otherwise, let the agenda dictate dress.
Yet, there are still a surprising number of places where I'm invited to dress "business casual." Actual meetings with real humans (gasp!), conferences and summits, PR parties and events, and general social gatherings and celebration.
And, since I've never really had a job where business, uh, regular? is the standard, scaling back from that isn't always clear.
I've long been a fan of business cards that are so unique that they become, essentially, impractical. The blogosphere is rife with interesting business cards, but this is the first time I've seen concrete business cards. Impractical? Maybe. But the awesomeness of these makes them total worth it.

Printed on Rolodex-ready business card stock. Extremely limited run of 20 S+N 11” x 17” prints are available for $25/pop."
We can connect fifteen of the twenty-one to its pop culture origin; how many can you? Let's see if we can get them all down in the comments section below!
This day-in-age, a simple embossed logo and your name in a classic serif simply won't do. We're in the era of digital networking, and in order to make a business card work, it needs to stand out.
Bofthem has figured out a way to do just that: do-it-yourself scratch off printing.

Designed by Y&R Thailand, the cards feature line drawn faces and a bevy of textured blackspace, allowing the user to create a custom hair style with a pair of scissors. A little bit paper doll, a little bit Wooly Willy, a whole bit awesome.
