It’s Memorial Day weekend and to that we say, YEAH! Yeah for vacation, yeah for BBQ’ing, and double yeah for massive American flags made out of nothing else but gift cards.
No, but like seriously massive. Like 16 feet by 7 feet massive. Like 2,223 individual gift cards massive.
Judge for yourself:
You know, that completely does not capture the scale of this thing, in fact, it kind of makes it look small.
We got sick of doing the same boring, thoughtless Memorial Day social media post and decided to do something bigger. We believe our veterans deserve more than that. We believe we are all better than that.
CardCash has a huge stockpile of used gift cards that CardCash has purchased and resold electronically. The balances on these cards have already been depleted and they are valueless – but no longer useless.
Cards were chosen for this project by color. Because we label them when they arrive at our facility, we needed to soak them in goo-gone for a while and then scrape the labels off. This, we can admit, was very much not fun.
Once we had the cards we mapped out a flag design in a Google Sheet. Here’s what it looked like:
Yeah, that’s cool, we know.
We cut 16 blocks of some kind of thin board and began gluing cards to the boards. We used Gorilla Glue. Why? Cuz it seriously rocks.
So we glued and glued:
We built a big wood frame:
Check out these cards:
What do you think? We kinda love it.
Happy Memorial Day!
