The Paperkut Business Card (Includes Video)

This week, features a fun, interactive and three-dimensional, business card from designer Tommy Perez. The Paperkut Business Card takes a “business in the front, party in the back” approach—using duplex laminated stock, with white in front and a variety of colors in the back.

Using the concept of negative space and a few cleverly spaced diecuts, the studio’s logo is revealed on the card after the small intricate diecut flaps are folded back, and the color on back matches the imprint on front. Who wouldn’t love a business card like this?

The business card was printed by Mama’s Sauce in Orlando, FL, and the paper used was Pop-Tone from French Paper.
