Personal Stationery by Dustin K. Friesen

I love these hexagon shape business cards by designer Dustin K. Friesen. Here is what he had to say about the project…

“This was a fairly ambitious undertaking, especially with my minuscule personal budget. I wanted to create a business card that was inviting to the viewer and also highlights my personal logo, and what better way than a hexagonal shaped card?

The process for producing these cards was quite an involving one. Having the design, but being limited by budget, I pursued every alternative to my initial overly expensive plans I could think of. I purchased the #110 Crane’s paper, printed each side digitally through a local University Press, adhesed the two separate sides of the card together myself (resulting in 220#DTC) and endeavored to do all of the die-cutting by hand with a rotary paper cutter. In the end it took about 1 hour of personal labor for everything per 50 printed cards – I even had a little help from my friends. Considering my final cost was just under $50, this was well worth it, and at times it was even enjoyable.”
