We are in the process of setting up a cafe/espresso bar and I really want a black coffee card / loyalty card / reward card. Obviously a stamp is impossible on a black card so I am trying to find a punch in the shape of a coffee cup or something but have been unsuccessful so far. Any ideas where to go...

Thank you soooo much!

(I am in Australia so I can shop only really shop online from the US)

Eve, if you have already tried the usual suspects, as far as espresso supply shops, like Visions in Seattle, your next step wouold probably be to shop in some art supply stores for an unusual single punch tool.
seems like a waste of profit.. not only giving your customers something for free but, actually going out of your way to find fancy cards for it.... but if you really want them i suggest a local leather-working store they have all kinds of leather punch tools that would be really hard to counterfeit... good luck!
the usual suspects...?

I have only really looked for paper punches in craft shops. Any suggestions....?

What we do is write our initials in a box of o, let's say 10 punches for a free drink. Because we're a smaller, more tight-knit group, we pretty much know each others' initials and can pick up a BS punch the minute it comes up. Not to mention, we rotate baristas enough that we can sometimes come across our own initials being forged.
Awesome thanks! that is exactly what I was looking for :-)

The other thing I forgot to mention is that you may want to try using an unusual stamp design.
The "usual suspects"--A well known line from the classic movie, "Casablanca" delivered just as this romantic movie ends on a tear jerking note! Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman starred in this great movie. What I meant by it was the usual espresso supply shops that carry espresso supply tools. Some may carry this tool.
lovely goodies there too! Thanks I have just spent another $500... :-)
