CD Business Cards

I’ve sorted out how to cut CDs fairly well and made some business cards out of them.

They are very popular!

There are a bunch of offshoots from this project so I tend not to make cards out of them anymore! Here are other business card projects.

Here are some of the spinoff projects: Vinyl Clocks, CD Earrings, Drawing RobotsSpirograph Business Cards, Vinyl Business Cards, CD Mirror, Hendrix Portrait, Guitar Pickswind mobiles


Other experiments:

I decided to make a fixture to make things more efficient. Here’s the first fixture.

Worked well so I made a load of other things. Guitar picks, hands for clocks, price tags and much more.

The fixture needed improvement and got worn out pretty quickly. So I went another step.

Worked great:

As you can see below things have grown from there considerably.

  • Clock hands from a CD. That is an awesome use for the material. Very light weight, and flashy. Perfect.

    • Yeah, I’m just working on version two of the CD hands. CD material is a bit more sparse son I’m going to use inlay rather than make the hour hand entirely out of the CD.

  • Hi, I live in India and also work with waste materials. Please could you tell me what machine you are using?

    • It’s a cnc machine.

      • Okay. Is it possible to buy it? Also you mention you made specific fitments for CDs, can one but those also?
