You're Out Of Your Mind: $1,500 Business Cards

expensive-business-cards-1.jpg

Black Astrum is a London based company that'll make you $1,500 apiece business cards inlaid with diamonds and gold. Except not really because you have to be INVITED to have the cards made. OH WHAT, MY MONEY ISN'T GOOD ENOUGH FOR YOU?!

Sufian Khawaja, Black Astrum's concept director says, "We've had several enquiries from American celebrities and international businessmen, however our cards are offered by invitation only, reflecting our desire to serve only the most premier individuals". The cards were originally created as a one-off project for a wealthy Middle Eastern family.


Since its exclusively customized to a client's specifications, the cost of making varies. However, the company states that the average selling price per card is about the £1000 ($1,500), and it is sold in sets of 25, 50 and 100 cards.

Yeaaaaaaah, if you're the kind of person that can drop $150,000 on 100 business cards, do you really NEED business cards? Because if I had that kind of money I'd greet everyone I met with an uppercut. F*** you, I'm rich!

World's most expensive business card is diamond studded and costs $1500 a pop [luxurylaunches]

Thanks to Erin, who agrees if there's one person who deserves $1,500 business cards, it's me. I know, right? Maybe the mailman put my invitation in the wrong apartment box.

There are Comments.
  • If I had that kind of money to spend on business cards, I would rather buy a luxury car and let the car do the talking for me. It is crazy what some people would sell just to make their product look more high end.

  • Pretty amazing . Looking for the first time such an expensive card. I have never seen such a card before. Really nice design.

    The sole example on their site (which in itself is hilarious) looks positively crap! A professional graphic designer could do you a design that looks infinitely better, and costs at least one order of magnitude less for a few hundred. Proof that money does not buy you taste. Or sense.

    Business cards are pretty much for promotional means of getting business & more income...spending much more than needed money on business cards does seem silly. High gloss or specialty texture paper would seem the most to having a professional business card.

    For when the more traditional ways of declaring that you're an ostentatious douchebag just aren't cutting it...

  • Product site is slow to load. Can't they afford a good web developer?

  • They clearly can't afford an editor either. There are typos all over the place.

  • $18922249

    Sure... why not.
