Blade Runner-Inspired MetroKab Cards For Sale

Inspired by Blade Runner, and designed by me, these fan-made, non-canon ‘wallet stuffers’ are now available on eBay and the RPF:

My card has a very simple, limited palette of colors, no holograms, no embossed text, no full-color graphics, no QR codes, etc. My card is four-color process printed on a thin, flexible plastic stock; thinner and softer than a credit card, but more durable than paper cardstock.

And also available in the Project Runs section of the RPF’s junkyard, for members, wherein I will offer certain, limited international shipping.
