How To: DIY Scratch-Off Business Cards.
This day-in-age, a simple embossed logo and your name in a classic serif simply won’t do. We’re in the era of digital networking, and in order to make a business card work, it needs to stand out.
Bofthem has figured out a way to do just that: do-it-yourself scratch off printing.
The trick is this special recipe for homemade scratch off ink. “The scratch off ink is 5 parts water soluble block printing ink, the kind you can find at most craft stores, to one part dish detergent. The detergent prevents the ink from binding together into a cohesive layer. This means it will dry flat and professional looking but crumble to dust when scratched off. It looks best when laid over a smooth, shiny surface. Make sure to print it on glossy paper, as rough matte paper will make the ink stick somewhat and the scratch will be muddled and blurry.”
