There is an unspoken challenge between graphic designers to see who can create the thickest business card — at least the thickest one made out of paper — and the latest entry in the thick-as-bread category is that of Manchester based designer Antony Wilock, who has glued together two heavy cover weights to form a 540gsm (324 lb) business card. To counter the heft of the card, Antony applied the delicate process of foil stamping to create a simple gray-on-citrine design with his information and a gloss-on-gray treatment for the back. Heavy (and pretty) stuff!
