'Airfix' style bussiness cards

Post by Rick Mainwaring » Thu Jan 24, 2013 12:45 pm

I can think of several ways these could be produced depending on the substrate you wanted to use, but what I really like is the thinking behind it.

Only negative thing I might add is that you're likely to have lots of fun building cars and airplanes before you realise that you had forgotten to write down the contact details first - good luck piecing it back together.

I love it!...but as you say, might be worth making the final model design so that it included your details-not destroyed them! Also can't imagine you'd be able to carry a stack with you in your wallet.
Much like these skater-influenced cards from a skateboard shop. Good to market to your audience eh:

You'd scrape away the design eventually but I expect you would remember the company name by then!
Duct tape always comes in handy...

^ Clever

You could apply this concept to a few marketing applications, I like the notion; 'The quick fix that advertises the solution'. Like a small piece of protective tape you can fit if a small crack appears in your windscreen which simultaneously advertises the vehicle glass repair company. If Autoglass introduce this, remember - you heard it here first!
