Business cards from a galaxy far, far away

In the epic battle of Jedi vs. Sith, it never hurts to wield a trusty…business card?

A tongue-in-cheek collection of Star Wars business cards has popped up on The Mary Sue, and according to one collector, they’re circa 1977 legit. If the campy fonts and lack of email or cell phone numbers are any indication, these collector items very likely emerged in the late 70s – and may have been the product of a die-hard fan as opposed to company-sanctioned memorabilia.

Props to the Star Wars aficionado who created these gems, but demerits for spelling “wookiee” incorrectly on Chewie’s card. We trust the gentle giant will let it slide.

I’m particularly loving Princess Leia’s listed specialty of “insults” and C-3PO’s witty title of “Human/Cyborg Relations Specialist.” Every office needs one of those, right?

Han Solo
Chewie 
Sandpeople
Tarkin
Stormtroopers
Luke
Vader

    Yes indeed, these are awesome.

    What a great find Stacey,

    The designs are very much of their time, I guess that the
    look and feel falls more in line with the charm of the original films.

    And as for what’s missing surely the Emperor would have a
    card?

    It’s “Tusken”, not “Tuskin”. Otherwise–COOL cards. Did a wonderful job in matching the character of the fonts with the character of the person.

      As noted above, the cards are from 1977, when New Hope was the only release.

        So? Jabba and Fett were in the special edition.

    I can’t believe you forgot Boba Fett, Jabba the Hut, The Emperor and Lando!

      The cards pre-date both Empire and Jedi :)

    These cards are circa 1977, so Yoda was yet to make an appearance in the series.
