made with love: stamped business cards

by amym

If you’re anything like me, you have a hard time with business cards. I never know exactly what I want them to say, should I just use my name or put a title, too? When your career forces you to wear many hats, sometimes it’s nice to have multiple business cards that speak to each of your different jobs, but I can’t bring myself to get individual letterpress cards. This is a trick I learned at Saipua that makes amazing and special little cards, perfect for when you need them ASAP and have no particular photoshop skills, a letterpress, or a ton of money handy. One trip to your local Staples is it!

What you’ll need:

– Small manila shipping tags, like these .
– Custom stamp kit, like this basic one available at Staples

– Ink pad


– Using small tweezers, place each letter in it’s place


– Make sure to spell each word backwards, it takes some getting used to but if you start each word on the right moving left, it’s significantly easier.


– Test the placement of your spacing by stamping a few tags and shift them accordingly!
