This simple design does a great job as a business card dispenser / holder.

Conventional business card holders / boxes / dispensers lean the cards backwards which makes the top edge of the front card you want to get out lower than those behind it. The net result is removing 'a single' card is difficult and you usually end up pulling out several then have to put all but one back.

This is where this design differs...

While the cards placed in the Business Card Dispenser angle back wards very slightly the surface they are sitting on is angled far more steeply. This makes the front cards top edge sit above all the others behind it... just gently rest your finger on the top edge of the front card and roll the card forward. It should move away as the single card you want leaving the rest untouched and in place.

The Business Card Dispenser also looks a bit quirky and different from a 'normal' card holder plus being 3D printed adds a novelty value.

Great to use yourself or as a simple little gift. Print in your / someone's favourite color or keep it simple and subtle.

Made to work with regular landscape business cards 90mm x 55mm
