Fabulous Stationery recently launched a vast line of calling cards with their signature sketchy designs. “Sketchy” in a good way, of course. Here are a few my favorites, but head over to FS and check out the entire plethora for yourself.
Moo dreams up new tools that help people turn their virtual content into beautiful print products. I’m loving their MiniCards and StickerBooks!
The StickerBooks are generated out of your Flickr stream or from your very own designs – 90 different, full color, glossy Stickers, printed on 15 different sheets and bound into a pocket-sized book ($9.99). There are also readymades available if your pictures suck and you want to use Moo’s. There’s free shipping on StickerBooks for July only, so hurry up and take advantage.
MiniCards are roughly half the size of a normal business card. Same deal – choose up to 100 of your own designs or pictures from your Flickr stream (or use Moos) and add up to six different lines of text on the back. The cards show up on your doorstep in a reusable plastic box ($19.99). And I figure you can probably do tons of different things with these besides using them as their intended purpose.
