The Perfect Mix of Google and Business Cards

If the top Google search results for your unique online name lead to web pages under your control, you can take advantage of the search engine and save on business card design. The card of "Mister Jalopy" is simply a screenshot of Google's home page, with his alias in the search box. Easy to make (grab a screencap), and easy to print (for companies that do four color plus grayscale publishing).

Of course, we can't stress the terms "unique online name" and "Google domination" enough. And it's pretty hard to push something like "Herr Old Car" to the top of Google if you aren't a frequently-linked-to writer of sorts—who writes on a high-traffic website no less.

    You could always change the logo to Goofle, so far as i can see there's no copyright protection for that name.

    DreadSiUm, Isn't that a copywrighted logo?I don't think you'd be really profiting from it, so it probably comes under fair usage, it could even count as a parody. It's more of an ad for Google.

    You could get rid of the logo and it would be just as effective.

    That defeats the whole purpose of the card. The point is they are supposed to look you up on google. not Goofle. You notice how there is none of his information except whats in the search box.

    I dread to think how these cards printed out - 72dpi screen caps and graphics don't work on 300dpi printed business cards.

    Can if "Mister Jalopy" spent the time recreating the Google logo just for printing then methinks he could better direct his energies.
