Project Description

As part of Makers Union, one my first tasks to get the shop ready was to design and print some business cards. I designed ten different card backs, then screen printed them. For the other side, we used a laser cutter to make some stamps with our individual contact information and general information for the shop.

Production Lesson(s)

Knowing that I was screen printing the cards using a large screen, I wanted to take advantage of the space that it provides. So, I decided to put ten different designs and print them all at once. It will add a little variety and hopefully be fun for the people that will get these cards. Kind of a "collect them all" mentality.”
