Here’s a production jig I designed to make tons of pocket business card holders in no time.

The jig features a base, a keeper frame, an excavating template, a hole template and is meant to be used with one or two plunge routers and two guide bushings.

If you’re planning to attend craft fairs to sell your projects, you may be interested by this money making jig !

Find more photos and all construction details from this page of my blog as well as how it works (next post).

Thanks for watching.

I have made numerous card holders and the problem I see with your design is that the cards fall out!!! You might want to look into a bent wood piece in the box itself to keep the card in place. That or a lid works great.

@kimosawboy: Thank you for your comment. I’ve made several tests and if one keeps about 20 cards in the holder they act as a soft pad or a spring and stay put, even if left in a purse or a pocket.

Very nice , that’s great to carry ones cards but I have to say…. As far as others cards, I have been using Scanbiz App for3 years. Free , scans the card , loads all info, into card file folder, and it is always on your phone . Can’t even remember my notebooks of cards I had when building.

It’s a very creative jig and it’s a nice gift or product.
