This is a remixed edition of Cards Against Humanity. The original instructions for the PNP edition of CAH encouraged you to have your copy printed at Staples. One of the services that Staples offers is same-day, or "instant" business cards. They are printed, and cut on site. This file is prepared to fit that same cutting template as their business cards.

I can in no way guarantee that they will allow you to use the machine that they use to cut the business cards for this game, so it's up to you to use your ingenuity to convince them to do so. Be sure to inquire about any costs involved up front. There are no cut lines in this file, so if you can't use their business card cutter, you're probably better off using the original PNP version of CAH.

Again, this is a remixed version of the game. Some of the cards are new, and were introduced to replace cards I felt were weak. Often times, the cards I removed were cards I had never seen people use before, or cards I've never seen anyone "win" with. These changes mostly effect the white cards. There are no backs for the cards, so you'll probably want to have the "black" cards printed on a colored card stock.

Very cool! How much did it run, approximately, for everything to have them do this?

...also, you might find a spelling error in there, or a couple of extra periods. My bad. I'll post an update and replace the file sometime soon.

Okay, the main file has been updated.

I've also created a editable pdf for both the black and white cards, but you can't save them. I guess you'll have to use these to print cards out at home, and then bring them to get cut. There's also a file with instructions on how to go about possibly getting the game printed. Again, I make no guarantees about whether your local print shop will take this job like it is. In case you were wondering, but didn't want to read the file, any shop with a DocuCutter CC-228 should be able to cut these cards.

So everyone has something to compare, the price for OfficeMax to print out and cut a copy of Business Cards Against Humanity runs more than $35 - which is more than the base game (at it's normal, uninflated price) and shipping. When the CAH team said that the best deal is at Staples, they sure as hell meant it.

Yes, it's likely going to cost you much more -anywhere- other than Staples unless they have the exact same business card cutting equipment.

This was brilliant for me.

I looked up the model number of the business card cutting machine, and I made a template generator for it, here are my instructions.

I based my template files for nanDECK off of this post:
http://boardgamegeek.com/filepage/93963/nandeck-template-and...

So now you can just give it a CSV file in the right format, and it will make cards. I just got the 660 cards printed out at Staple for $18.66
