I have also been toying around with the idea of scanning my cards and then reprinting the image onto cardstock so I can offer my cards in a set of 4/5 at a more affordable price. I thought this idea might work after coming across Jayme McGowan's 3-D illustrations from Roadside. She photographs her original 3-D work which then allows her to sell her pieces at a more affordable price and they retain their 3-D quality!

What do you think? Should I give it a try? Do you think people would be interested in saving a few bucks and would buy a reproduced image vs. the real stitched deal? I'm thinking it might work. Now I just need to find a good printer. Suggestions?
