We love our (pimped out) business cards
This week we’ve received the new Web.Burza business cards from the printers. The new design features our own individual pookies, each in a toy-box like enclosure, and of course just enough contact information so they can’t be classified as trading cards.
They turned out great on paper, and it seems like everyone in the office really likes them. Well, some of the guys are on vacation so they haven’t seen them yet, but I believe it will be a pleasant surprise when they return (just like this blog).
The new business card design is all thanks to Pho, our photoshop guy. I remember him pitching me a new design by just sending over a render of business cards laid out on a desk. I didn’t see it coming at all (I usually know what he’s working on) and I was sold on the first look. From that point on we did some testing (no animals were harmed) and talking to our friends and peers, but in the end Pho came up with this completely new twist and bam, it was the final design.
The printers however did not allow for some of the subtleties such as Web.Burza logo consisting of punched-out holes (they were too close for the machines), but these were swiftly removed and were no nuisances at all. In fact, the printers, Kratis, turned out to be very, very professional and it was a joy working with them. Our account manager was Mrs. Šafranko – thanks for a job well done!
For the geekier amongst you, our cards were printed as 4/4 on the color enhancing MAGNO Satin paper, 350 g/m2. The plastic part of the toy-box is covered with a layer of UV coating, which might prove to be a big help to James Bond when he has to blind the enemy by reflecting the sunlight into their eyes.
In the end, today was all about showing off our cards and we’ve made a little photoset on Flickr.
