When I was learning how to use a sewing machine in 4H Club, they gave me a sheet of paper imprinted with straight and curved lines. I was supposed to take that flimsy piece of paper, stick it under the presser foot (for you uninitiated, that’s where the needle is), and trace a threadless outline to get the hang of it.
That could have easily been the inspiration for these “stitched” business cards, but the designer says they came from thinking about what a billionaire Arab sheik would want if one were to hand him a business card representing a hat boutique.
I don’t know anything about billionaire people of any sort, but I can say that my first impulse was just to rub these lovelies all over my face. Oh the sweet plushiness! The feel of 1,000 gsm (Um, that’s 64 pt. – accomplished by adhering two sheets of 500 gsm Somerset together) is unforgettable and “perfect” for accomplishing the illusion of some magical letterpress that can print two-sided (sans the reverse image on the back side).
