I need a Business card

Seriously, I am already in the need for one with all of the people I meet. Plus with my involvement in the automotive community, a business card would help for those wanting to contact me.

I'm thinking of a business card made out of 304 stainless with my title and such on it. But the price for those cards are abusrd.. $100 setup fee, $1.80 each card, minumum 100 cards, shipping... $300 for 100 cards... ouch.

so, I am thinking.. go the paper version but with a brushed metal look to it if possible.. I would save much.


or.. find a friend with a cnc shop and have them make some business card pieces of brushed 304 for me with rounded edges, get a stamp made and make them all by hand. then clear coat them...

You can go to a place like "Business Cards Tomorrow" (BCT) and get 500 cards for about $30-$50. They have card stock that is uncoated white on one side and has a brushed metal look on the other (brass, copper, aluminum). Then you can get your info printed on using thermography (raised printing).

Most local print shops broker work for places like BCT and Regency. You can go to pretty much any print shop and order your cards cheap. Plus with digital printing you can get VERY small runs inexpensively, but you won't get the brushed metal look paper.
