Design-Your-Own Plastic

… credit card, that is.

Just noticed that flickr has partnered with CapitolOne.  You can now put your own photos from flickr on your credit card. 

It’s a pretty genius idea – one of the reasons I like my current credit card is that it has a picture of Stanford on it.  And whenever I use it, it reminds me of my college days, friends I made there, experiences I had, etc.  The warm fuzzy usually only lasts about 2 seconds, but I like it enough that it’s a disincentive to change credit card companies.

Anyways, smart marketing move.  Nice one, Flickr & Capitol One!
