I usually have big problems with online "X" creators, they are usually cumbersome, weird and have various results ranging from bad to awful. While Deyey also has these features, I find that it actually works better than most creators.

Deyey is a name card and business card creator which allows you design your business card from scratch, add text, media, and pre-designed elements. It has a very easily usable drag and drop interface, a click-to-select method you see in desktop apps, but rarely in web apps and many fun elements to spice up your card.

What I really liked about it is that the logos generated by the app seem to work like vector graphics, you can scale them up or down as much as you like, without getting that pixellated feel. You can also add context to the text, since you can choose if the selected text is a phone number, a name or a fax number.

Downloading options are pretty cool, the small version is 591x378, while the large is 1252x825 and you also get the bleed and crop marks. You get about 100Mb of free space, so you can create a lot of cards. If you want to be really hip and colorful, you can create and print a batch of name cards, all with different designs. If you're a web-designer, or some other creative artist, this could be a good move if you go for interviews or job applications.

Overall, this is a pretty usable system, while it does have the usual kinks and hardships of pre-built designers. You won1t have the freedom of Photoshop, but you do get significant breathing space, it should be enough for most users.

Update: Deyey is no longer available. Try Free PDF Cards instead which you can use to create free basic cards.
