Circuit Board Ornaments and “Punchcards” Blank Greeting Cards

Circuit Board Ornaments – $6.00 each

Need more geeky tree-adornment action? Check out these ornaments made from real, dead circuit boards.


These blank greeting cards are handmade from real, vintage used punch cards and feature a brief description on the inside blank sheet. What’s a punchcard you ask? Well, in the 50s and 60s programs and data could be executed and stored on paper with punches representing characters. Programmers would write out code on a coding sheet and then hand it over to a keypunch operator where characters were encoded by punching out the character needed, to be read and executed by the card reader. Retro!
