From card to collage

To celebrate the launch of Game of Thrones, Series 6, watch as we bring one character to life using just business cards...

We're total advocated of the Game of Thrones series and in true dedication to both the cast and the printing craft, we thought it would only be right to merge our two favourites into an epic Neil Buchanan-style scene.

If you're a huge fan of Game of Thrones, you seriously need to watch this. Check out our creative process from start to finish and watch in amazement as the whole thing unfolds. Can you guess who it is?

A card for every house

Game of Thrones has a number of characters, who all belong to a noble house. What better way to celebrate their existence (and keep track of them) than by designing and printing business cards for each of them, to form the collage?

Check out how we think each of the characters should promote themselves in the business world - from Cersei Lannister, Queen of the Seven Kingdoms to Bran Stark, Heir to Winterfell, to supporting characters such as petyr "Littlefinger" Bealish.

How it all started

We designed and printed out an incredible 3,906 business cards depicting all of the different characters from Game of Thrones and matched the colours to create an image - take a look behind-the-scenes at how we did this, and hear from our chief designer where the inspiration behind the individual card designs came from.

It took 19 instantprint employees, 9.5 hours to create the final piece. The mosaic was made in our warehouse and measures a whopping 5.35m wide by 3.41m high.
