    The Squad 19 boys have.

    Took old test prints for the back and put like 24 or more up on the other side cut 'em out and voila!

    They look good. Did some on different colors paper I think.

    I did it.
    Turned out ok. I used laytex paint instead of ink, and so I have a bit of warping. But other than that, they're alright.

    These were all screenprinted. The bigger square ones and the ones on the top right were just trim from a bunch of posters, they were kind of an afterthought. The text was added with a rubber stamp. The ones on the lower right were actually printed at the foot of a different poster.

    I did some recently... they came out pretty cool.
    Just remember to leave a gutter if you're doing a bleed... I didn't and cutting them was a pain because if it.
    I used a [edit] 305 [/edit] mesh screen... smallest text size I used was 8pt and it came out real nice... I used waterbased ink.

    far right corner, bottom two... those look good!
    was it expensive to get a rubber stamp made?

    i would have but I didn't trust myself with the small text/bleeding.

    so I did them through kinkos and they charged me a shit load - i was bummed. but now i have some hip biz cards.

    I think it was like $30 for 100 cards, what a total rip off, couldn't do much about it at the time though, needed cards quick.
