Business Card Stamp

How much paper is wasted on business cards that are handed out and then discarded, or just get chucked because someone changes job role/company? How about you just put the details that would have been on your business card on a stamp, and stamp the details on a bit of scrap paper whenever you need to give someone your card.

You retain the fact that you are giving someone a physical artefact with your details on it, but you aren’t killing trees unnecessarily. I’m not sure how professional it looks to give someone a scrap of paper with your  details stamped on it. It might not cut the mustard in some industries, but if you are a creative, then I think it’s a great Idea, you can also double up it’s usefulness by making any sheet of paper a printed letterhead. It’s print on demand stationary in your pocket!

The idea was developed by Fischer Portugal, by creative director Diogo Mello, art director Marco Martins and copywriter Rafael Pitanguy.

Concept Camera Rubber-Stamp Counterfeiters Wet Dream?

This concept digital camera that turns any picture you take into a rubber stamp is indeed a “Nifty” idea. How you’d go about making one is anyone’s guess maybe it could work with millions of tiny pins like those executive pin toy things. If they can get the resolution good enough this thing would be a counterfeiters wet dream though. need to forge a stamp? Just take a picture of it and hey presto instant duplicate.
