For most designers a 130 lb. cover business card is a glorious achievement in hefty weight, it becomes a card that gets noticed as it is handed and its, at most, eighth-of-an-inch thickness can be imposing. Manchester-based Corporation Pop has gone beyond any set of conventions for their business card and have produced an almost half-inch business card sculpted from a joyful concoction of crushed illicit CDs and water containers. As if that wasn’t enough for it to stand out, it is foil blocked (foil stamped) in the brightest orange this side of the sun. The only caveat is that you probably can’t fit more than, say, five in your wallet.
