some good ideas on here http://tutorialblog.org/creative-custom-die-cuts-on-business-cards/
thought i'd list some of the peeps i need to contact below so i have them all in one place. there was this really great company who did exactly what we're looking for - Go Kreate, but i think they've closed down as i can't find them anywhere and their website is redundant. Will keep ing looking though as price could still be an issue (or not!) anyway i found them on a forum http://www.craftsforum.co.uk/showthread.php?t=6578 so will keep searching. xx

NOTE: If i did these again I'd do them individually and not try to cram them into a 3 hour printing slot!
