Rogue Trading

My debit card has been deteriorating with growing cracks cutting into the magnetic strip. I still had two years left before I was due to automatically receive a new one so I went online to place an order and stumbled on the ability to request a card with a custom image...

How freakin' cool is that? Like all things of this nature, you have to submit an appropriate image, promise that it's not copyrighted, etc. Your submission has to be approved by a live person so the process takes a few days. With literally hundreds of images I could choose from, I decided to grab something from the last few weeks. The image fit well into the negative space around all of the important business bits. Apparently if decide I want something different, all I have to do is go back to the site and request another card (for a small fee of course).

We live in remarkable times!


  1. That's fuckin BOSS!!!!!!

    I'm definitely keep this in mind for when I need a new card.

    Thanks for the tip :)

  5. Hi,
    my brother and me just love these pics! Great work! I bought the same kit on ebay a couple days ago(from the u.s. to europe...). Today I am building it. Thank you for the great "inspiration"! You are one of the coolest GW-Blogger out there. Much love from germany!
