Don’t be a square! We can cut your cards to any shape using a custom die! We made these promotional cards for Richard’s Rainwater during SXSW, and it was the perfect way to set them apart from all the other people handing out cheapo rectangle flyers. Corners are so dumb, right?

Richard’s Rainwater is an awesome local company based out of Dripping Springs, TX

We’ll tell you right now, the setup for die-cutting is a little bit pricey, so it’s best suited for larger orders (250+ pieces) so you can get plenty of shapely bang for your buck. Got questions? Shoot us a message and let’s see if die-cutting is right for your next project!

Aus-Tex Consolidated Services last year.

Ascent Academy is an exciting new school opening in Austin this fall, whose mission is “to equip more young people in Texas with the skills they need to seek meaning in their lives, to become independent learners, and to become globally-minded critical thinkers.” We like the sound of that! Chris was so inspired by their ideas about teaching that he decided to do some
teaching of his own and brought his kiddo Wyatt along
to help install their signage and decals!

We did these gorgeous notecards for Apple Leasing, featuring raised red metallic foil. Photos do not really do this effect justice, it is super eye catching! Nothing leaves a lasting impression better than a handwritten note on a beautiful custom notecard. Order some for yourself or your business today!

This raised metallic look is created by lining up embossing and red hot foil.

There are so many options for customizing your business cards that there’s just no excuse for handing over something bland and generic. Here’s some tips to make sure your design looks awesome:

These super cool cards feature both embossing and spot UV treatment.
  1. Be consistent with your branding; your business cards, stationery, brochures, and website should all use the same 2-3 fonts and colors.
  2. Don’t use COMIC SANS or PAPYRUS 😀
  3. Try unexpected type direction or card orientation, or maybe even a custom shape
  4. The things that should sing the loudest are your company name, then your name, then all your contact information
  5. Don’t clutter up your card with excessive information or qualifications. Your card should answer the questions 1) Who Are You? 2) What do you do? 3) How can I reach you? Conversation and a brief perusal of your flyer or website can do the rest.
  6. Take advantage of the many customization options offered at Global:
  • Rounded Corners
  • Extra thickkk stock
  • Plastic or Metal cards
  • Embossing/Debossing
  • Custom Shapes
  • Spot UV coating (makes only certain areas shiny)
  • Raised Spot UV coating
  • Metallic Foil (any color)
  • Raised Metallic Foil (Gold, Silver, Copper, or Holographic)
  • Special Cutouts
  • Painted Edges
  • and most importantly custom design!
