Here’s my new business card – an ‘elephant’ stand for iPhone, smartphone or PDA.

    Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful.

    As I am not not in the technology communications business I am not “too” shy to ask for more details.

    I believe you said the cards were scored? What weight of paper? Any other details you would like to add?

    Thanks and regards

    Thanks – glad you like it. Weight of paper is not critical – any business card stock will work. Equally, I’ve fiddled around with the exact positioning of the folds and again it’s not too critical – 5mm either way for any of the lines and it still works fine. Re scoring/cutting – some printers will probably do this for you, but I did mine manually. Cut a slit along the top of each of the ‘tusks’ as far as the diagonal dotted lines. Score along all dotted lines to allow easy folding – I used a ruler and a plastic scoring tool, but you could just as easily use an empty biro. On the second printing I abandoned the ‘cut out’ trunk as this made folding slightly awkward – newer version just has drawn outline of trunk. Be grateful of a credit on your card if you copy the design. 🙂

    Hey, great idea. I have a 4 month old niece who enjoys watching Baby Einstein on my sister’s iPhone, so I thought I’d try something similar to your ele-vator smart stand. Instead of just using paper, I used fun foam, made it bigger, etc. My sister loved it (she’s a big elephant fan), and the baby loves it. It’s been several months, and it hasn’t broken or anything, so great idea again, thanks for sharing
