The coolest cards

Back in the fall, when Panda and I went to Hong Kong, I came back with these awesome cards. Let me share them in more detail, because they’re just so cool.

The cards are a heavy stock, with a nice ridged texture. Each cover has a nice image but into it, giving you a preview of what’s inside. As you start to open them, that’s when the magic happens. You might not have expected 3D cards, but then something pops out! These are designed at an angle so they will fold nicely and flatten out, but then stand up into a fantastic 3D design.

I also chose this one for myself to keep. It’s sitting on my desk at work.

This one needed extra support so they designed those waves.

I picked this out for my coworker who is a Francophile like me!

I like how it has the map of France too.

And for the guy, I thought this was super cool. Reminds me of a pirate ship.

Look at all the parallel lines it uses! I’m fascinated by how they designed these things.
