Unusual Cards
posted by sciurus (15 comments total)

 
They are unusual and very cool, but there is no price list available, and if you try to access order placement, it takes you directly into PayPal - seems a little non-kosher to me....

The cards themselves are awesome. It took me a few minutes to realize that they weren't merely reproductions of actual cards. Very strange.

I know where my Christmas cards are coming from this year.
Excellent find, sciurus!

Dear wooly mammoth festooned with garland, pulling a Christmas sleigh, you will be mine. Oh yes, you will be mine!

by any chance, does anyone here have the link to some artsy-weird valentine's cards that were a bit popular earlier this year?

the only one i remember was a brown card, with 2 robot figures i think. one of the robots said something along the lines of "you make me retarded"

WaterSprite: They're using a PayPal shopping cart which is actually hosted by PayPal. Once the stuff is in your cart it will show the price. Not what many would consider a good design choice, but not necessarily treyfe.

Thanks jlkr. You're right about the bad design choice, but it would still be a nice gesture to put up a price list....

Whoever built their Paypal cart doesn't know what the hell they're doing.

I think the cards are $3.50 each.

Nice link! Thanks!

that's awesome.

the way a link should be.

I don't think you can order the cards any more; clicking the 'Add to Cart' button takes you to Paypal's login screen, the e-mail link has a blank mailto: target, and the printable order form goes to a 404.

A simple "Sorry, we're not taking order right now" would have sufficed.
