    Making embossed business cards for my portrait studio

    In my portrait studio I use embossed business cards that I print and emboss.

    They have no embossing showing on the back so they are 'extra cool'.
    :-)

    Here's how I do it!

    I like your registration setup.

    Iím familiar with duplex and even triplex business cards but Iíve never watched someone mounting each individually.

    A contrasting color paper is often used for a nice looking edge effect.

    Village,
    [crowd sounds] "ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!'
    Contrasting colors!
    Esp. triplex with the contrast in the core of the stack.

    Trickery, trickery, trickery - I like it!

    Are they usually cut after lamination?
    Duh!

    Makes more sense!

    I do have a paper stack trimmer, but it doesn't have a good adjustable backstop, though I could 'easily' add one by....

    Yeah, the contrasting colors can look pretty chic.

    Iíve usually seen things like this done as a run so the dies are often made about as large as the budget and press will allow so the cards can be printed and embossed as many at a time and then trimmed after lamination.

    But I like your get 'er done method.

    Beautiful heavy business card that will stand out in the crowd. It might just be a few more steps for me however.
