I just came across a new (to me anyway) printer of business cards and other stationary called Oubly. At the time of this writing, they are offering up
20 free edge-painted business cards to the first 250 takers. Pay just $3 for shipping. Update, freebies are gone, but you can get 25% off thru 5/31 with code EDGE25H76F.
I snatched up a pack for myself and am pretty happy with them. The cards are ULTRA thick 36 point, with a bright painted edge.
They stand out… like a lot.
It would be nice to see some more templates, more customizations, and the ability to upload a design. Currently, there are only 20 designs to choose from (they offer regular business cards as well and have many more options there).
Naturally, their thickness makes them harder to carry – but they come with a nice carrying case to help in that respect.
Maybe not ideal for an everyday business card – at least in some circles – but when you really want to stand out , these will do nicely.
