This is a kit version (assembly required) of the Small Iris card. The Small Iris card is the size of a standard business card 3.5" x 2". It functions as a mechanical iris similar to those used in photography aperture mechanisms. A tab on the card can be manually rotated to progressively open the hole in the center of the card up to a maximum size of one inch. The card varies in thickness, but is approximately .09" thick at its thickest point. See the video below for a demonstration of the card and assembly instructions. This listing is for the unassembled card kit; the assembled version can be found here.
Printing note: I am not currently offering printing on the kit version of this card, but if you are interested let me know. I will consider it if there is enough interest. Please note that I would not be able to print across the center of the iris like I do with the assembled version. I would only be able to print on the pieces that form the main body of the card.
- Assembly does require some finger dexterity and care. Refer to the video to get an idea of difficulty level.
- Holding the card near the center will pinch the moving parts and make them unable to move. It works best to hold it by the edges as seen in the video.
- Most people don't know what to do with a card like this if you just hand it to them. It is usually a good idea to show them how it works as you are giving it to them.
