I took the effort to filter out all the existing free business card templates on the Internet and here I present to you the seven hand-picked sites that I think you should only consider. These sites alone contain almost 650 free designs. If you want any better designs, you just have to pay for it. I only shortlisted those that offer PSD/PDF or image file downloads instead of those that ask you to directly print your cards with them.
Freepik (About 296 Free Templates)
I start the list with this massive offerings from Freepik.com that spoils you with choices. You may pick from their 296 cards collection (mix of business cards and other card templates) each downloadable as a PSD file without requiring registration. It has different designs for different styles or industries, from modern to classic, wedding to films.
Free-Business-Card-Templates.com (120 Free Templates)
With over 120 templates to choose from, it’s hard to ignore this website. Although some of the templates may look similar to the other, the trendy designs make it worthwhile to download and edit them to be your own. You could freely use their designs for both personal or commercial use without any purchase or registration necessary. All templates are designed in offset print-ready 3.5″ x 2″ (3.75″ x 2.25″ including bleed area), 300 DPI high resolution and using only CMYK colors. They do offer Adobe Photoshop PSD, Illustrator AI or EPS and JPEG image business card file formats, if you wish.
Business Card Journal (100 Free Templates)
A website totally worth mentioning. Their 100 templates are laid out with 8 designs per page, so that’s a massive 13 pages that you need to browse through to find your desired name card. Sorry, no sorting function available although there is a search. Each card tells you how many times it was voted, shared and downloaded, which are good indications on how popular is the card (and also how high the probability that you’ll end up meeting someone that has the same card design as yours). No sign-up required and format is typically Photoshop PSD. Don’t be surprised if you actually find their templates being used by other websites listed here.
Canva (50 Free Templates)
They are not only known for designing cool social media images in a flash, but also offer over 50 free high quality name card design templates that you could customize on the fly on their popular online design tool. You can download them as PDF for print or high quality PNG. The only caveat is you need to sign-up in order to enjoy their freebies and also some cards do require you to fork out at least $1 for the photographic images used on the card.

This name card collection probably has the most uniquely design templates that don’t cost you a single cent, except for the printing.
