merch

i know this is exceedingly silly, but for the past four years i've had an licensing deal with papyrus cards. The deal is coming to a close and as far as i know there will be no more re-prints. It's a lenticular card (my spellcheck didn't recognize that word and wanted to replace it with "testicular") - which means that it moves as you change the angle of the card.

Who is going to do your cards now? I'll look after Canada for you!

Only ships to the U.S. or Canada? YOU SUCK!

Okay, you don't suck, but any internet vendor who doesn't ship worldwide is missing out on 90% of it's potential customer base.

Ze, I'll PayPal you a tenner (that's ten EUROS if you buy it for me and send it to Ireland.

I'm in for some! I love the lenticular art form! Since childhood it has always been a fave - but I never knew what it was called.

I first learned about you from "predate", but of course "how to dance properly" was the second thing I was shown so I will enjoy having and sharing the card. Testicular. Ha ha.

My company represents a Hi-Def lenticular printing manufacture as well as an inline paper printer which can print & combine the lens together. Feel free to contact me or my business partners if you have general questions or need any assistance.

Thanks,
Royce

I received this fantastically funny card from my brother long before I knew who Ze was. I wished I had checked out the URL when I received it. It's really quite cute - and if you cut out the lenticular, it's like getting one of those collectible chocolate frog cards in Harry Potter. And Ze's a brunette!

If you do not have a Papyrus near you, check to see if your local Target has a Papyrus section. They have recently begun to carry a line of Papyrus cards and I have seen "How to Dance Properly" there.

Thanks for the bit of pocket-sized fun, Ze! ^_^

if you'd used your spell-checker, your post is really funny.

I now own some testicular cards (3). I didn't want to own a pair of testicular cards. Yet just one felt funny. ;)

amazingly enough, they don't have any animated gif to show the animation. Still, they have a completely useless image viewer in which you can zoom into the pixelated image

hey i ordered one and i received two for the price of one!!!

i always believed you when you said you liked me the best, ze!

Posted by: bert at June 25, 2008 6:03 PM

These gon' be valuable, Ze. You is famous.

I gave this hilarious lenticular card to my sister years ago, before I'd even heard of Ze. She now knows how to dance really, really good.

FYI, I saw one of these cards at a Caribou Coffee back in April; I think it was in Oak Park, IL. I even tweeted it, I was so excited. I should have known it was a mistake not to buy it. The Caribou in Savage, MN I was at today had a rack of Papyrus cards but I didn't see the Ze card. Others might be able to find it at their neighborhood Caribou, though.

I bought 3 from whole foods! one for my boss's birthday whose a store manager on rodeo drive (whom you taught how to dance) and 2 to do whatever I want with. any suggestions Ze?

I just saw one of these in Royal Oak, MI the other day and thought it was something new....who knew they had been out there for 4 years. What else have I been missing?

Posted by: allison at July 2, 2008 3:33 PM

ha. i work at a Papyrus and i stare at that card almost every day that i am working.

Posted by: d at July 15, 2008 11:45 PM

I'm pleased and scared to report that I saw a Santa variation of your card at the Whole Foods in Denver, Colorado just weeks ago. It freaked me out and pleased me at the same time! Nice job.
