  • Reading forums WAY to late at night....

    Last night i read a thread about vista business cards. Carter mentioned to take the business cards and glue them to 1/4 piece of plywood. Then make a small puzzle out of it. Super idea.

    The next even more interesting idea is to have you business cards made out of very thin wood stock. So you have WOOD on WOOD. Maple would be good if you want the QR burned in on it.

    Now comes the question. Where would you get thin wooden business card made inexpensively?

    With a good burning tool, you might be able to make them by hand with 1/8" BBply..For those special customers...
    I'm not sure about burning the QRC by hand though. You'd have to be sure to get it perfect. probably not impossible, but difficult.

      Easy to find

      These have been around for years. Just Google it. This place lists 29 different sources:

      29 Creative and Durable Wooden Business Cards

      Now, inexpensive - that's another question!

      Full disclosure - I have no connection with any of these companies. Haven't used them and don't know them. But they are obviously available.

          Why no just glue regular business cards to the wood? Then they would be in their original design and color.

            I still might like the challenge, using Carter's suggestion, but burning an operational QRC on the back...
            Just to see if I could do it...

                What Carole said. The lips are 1 1/2”, holds the board to the counter and keeps the flour from going off the back. After gluing them to the board, he drilled stainless screws through the lip into the board and made plugs to fill the holes. The board is 3/4” thick. Since he only has 4 large Bessy...

                I remember Russel well. I think he went back to the days of Free4all.

                FYI: I just completed an index of the Charity Ornament book from SSV and Birchbank designed quite a few ornaments.

                Denny, you are correct, his name is Russell. While he may not have been here in years, he pops in at the Village forum from time to time. I just checked and he hasn’t been there since July. I would suggest that you send him a PM perhaps through the Village and see if you get a response.

                I think his name is Russel. I checked and he was last on the forum in 2014. I had a request for one of his patterns. Fortunately I still had a copy. Anyone heard from him?
