LEGO employees have the coolest business cards ever!

As if I needed another reason to think that working for LEGO would be the most awesome job imaginable, Alexander Kjerulf just blew my mind with these customized minifig business cards that LEGO employees get.

Reportedly, LEGO even attempts to match an employee's features with their own minifigs. I think we've got a winner for the coolest business card ever.

In case anyone wondered, coolness is inversely proportional to practicality. ;)

didn't lego say it's expensive to print directly to bricks? while it's cool to give out mfs as cards it's lots more expensive than cards. the medium itself is already expensive, and printing on paper vs printing on bricks? d'oh... i'm not so sure this is such a good idea. what if there was a mistake? reprint? white out and write over it? :lol:

i would prefer if they use that expense to give me printed bricks instead of stickers for my sets! XD

p.s. of course this opinion would change if i were working for tlg! ;)

Uhg. This has absolutely no correlation to the printed parts issue. :roll:

Uhg. Making an honest mistake like thinking the cost to print on a lego torso and printing on a brick are the same is soooo irritating. ;)

Yes, actually, dragging a dead horse into an unrelated topic is irritating - honest mistake or not. :p

If you needed some proof of Lego coolness... there it is. :D

Nice indeed. Expecially considering comparing price of paper vs plastic. :P ( Awful pun... )

Well, those printed pieces are only for the hand full of employees, so If they would print parts for sets, that is millions of parts, so I want to work for lego.

I need to meet a LEGO employee who can give me one of their minifig business "cards." It's different things like this that really make me enjoy my LEGO collection.

I have a couple of the employee giveaway keychains that I won off ebay, and I'm always looking for other different LEGO items.

Imagine the corporate meetings :lol: I can see it now... Lego rep pulls out his 'wallet' only to accidentally drop his 'business cards' on the floor, and 100 mini figs smash onto the floor and across the room.... :x
