Nissiwood Veneers in Kerala, India crafts everything from business cards, postcards, envelopes and even swipe cards from any of 15 different species of thin, reinforced wood veneers. (Even mahogany!)
Options include screen printing (up to two colors), digital multicolor printing, foil embossing and laser engraving, with results that will instantly set creatives’ minds buzzing with possibilities.
