I work for one of the UK’s top printing companies so it’s not very often that I get envious of somebody else’s business card. But for this awesome combination of geek and chic, I’ll make an exception.
Made from a real iPhone screen, this amazing business card is the brainchild of an unnamed Firmware Engineer working in Apple’s global HQ located at 1 Infinite Loop in Cupertino, California. One of the team in the iPod, iPhone and iPad accessories division, he reportedly wore this business card on a lanyard around his neck at Apple’s last Worldwide Developers Conference. Even Apple’s co-founder Steve Jobs had a regular business card made out of paper, just like most of us do.
Obviously not a person to compromise, or go for a quick fix like using plastic, the engineer has opted for a unique and difficult to manipulate material for his business card. The lettering had to be etched by laser onto the iPhone screen’s tough, hardened Gorilla Glass – a tricky and expensive process to get right without shattering the screen.
Little wonder then, that production was extremely limited to a run of just 10 cards. Although with a business card this cool, would YOU be able to give one away to a complete stranger?
