If you like metallic hologram foil...

Photobucket

...you might like my new business cards. It's a little bit razzle dazzle but I couldn't resist having them foiled in metallic hologram. I think this came from years of wishing for metallic foil on the masthead of VOGUE Living. I had them printed over at Goldcraft in Sydney's Marrickville. Those guys are the best! Take all your foiling needs to them.

I knew cards were quite the rage here in Japan, but I had no idea just how important it was to have one of your own. They are handed out at almost every occasion involving two people meeting.

So if you are moving to Japan, here is my recommended list of actions:

Get Alien registration card
Get Bank Account
Get Mobile phone
Get Business cards
Get Apartment

  16. Hi Ebony, totally amazing cards! I've had your blog as my home page for the past couple of weeks, not only because I love and adore it and your beautiful work but also because...I will be moving to Tokyo next year! Well for three glorious months at least. Last night designing business cards for the trip was the topic of conversation so it was quite serendipitous to wake up to this post. I can't wait to get around and check out all your favourite spots. Thanks for such a generous and useful blog!!
