Hi, Friends, It was always my dream to make my own cool business card that attracts people and shows the credibility of my work. I came across a lot of innovative designs for business cards and for different professions. After some brainstorming and being the Crazy Engineer and a Maker, I found PCB Business Card is most suitable for me.

Hi, Friends, It was always my dream to make my own cool business card that attracts people and shows the credibility of my work.

I saw many people have already done this and are quite beautiful and innovative  >>

Some have designed with components on the PCB like LED, MCU etc. but I wanted to keep my Business Card simple so I restricted myself to just Copper Tracks.

I already have a paper version of the Business Card and I thought it will be cool if I could make my PCB Business Card same as that. With a basic knowledge of Autodesk Eagle, I knew I could Import Bitmap Images into it and convert then into Copper Tracks. So I converted my graphics into Bitmap [ 1bit ] and made it a PCB.

Now the next challenge was to get it manufactured really cheap. After doing some research I found JLCPCB.com from Shenzhen, China is providing 2$ PCB Prototyping service for 10 Pcs PCB. I immediately generated Gerber and send it for manufacturing. I got it manufactured in 2 days and delivery took 1 week due to Customs Clearance.

I used FR4 Material 0.6mm Thickness to make it little flexible and keeping it in the 2$ budget. Next Try will be with Flexible PCB.

HERE ARE MY PCB SPECIFICATIONS

Layers: 2 Dimension: 50mm*90mm PCB Qty: 10 PCB Thickness: 0.6 PCB Color: Green Surface Finish: HASL(with lead) Copper Weight: 1 Gold Fingers: No Material Details: FR4-Standard Tg 140C
