Business cards from a galaxy far, far away.

ThumbnailIn 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?
