Hello!

I came across this article on using your skills to create a business card design, hope you find it useful if you're thinking of creating your own or offering the service to your clients!

Anybody seen any other interesting business card ideas, or even have a nice design for themselves already?

Is it possible to round corner or cut this material to shape with the cutter on a Roland XC-540

best done on a flat bed cutter as i do but the customers don't fancy paying for the extra and guillotining them is not so easy as the poll spacing of the magnetic material is about 2mm, so unless you get it all ligned up spot on the stack of material jumps out of alignment.
using the .4mm material and cutting with perfcut is just about do able on the roll plotters but a lot of faffing about, feed calibration, mag sticking to the bed, the printable surface is not as high a quality print as vinyl.
so i print to vinyl then stick to plain mag then cut as required

Hello there,
I think you should create one more article about "how to create a professional business card".
And I hope you will create an article on this topic as soon as possible.
Thanks
