Anyone know where I could get a link to a printable business card of Patrick Bateman's from theis movie? It's fairly easy I guess, but I have no skills or a program to fix it up and make it look good like I have seen some of you do. Any help would be appreciated.

Alright, I found a screen cap, only one problem, I cannot decipher half of the bottom line. If anyone has extremely good eyes, or can recognise the text, please, I would appreciate it.

It's a lot of different fonts. Some of the more fancy looking letters are monotype corsiva. But I would reccommend you just play around with it.

"Mergers and Acquisitions" , but the second word is misspelled "Aquisitions"

btw, you guys do know that I work for a business card printing company, right? ;)

I have been meaning to get this one made up, I just havent had time. If someone makes the graphics, I can get it printed, very cheaply :D

ok, Looked at the one I made, and the fonts that matched up near perfect with the letters were as listed:

All numbers at top: Monotype Corsiva
Pierce and Pierce Name: Garamond
Mergers and Acquisitions: Arial
Patrick Bateman and Vice President: Times new Roman
358: Monotype corsiva
and Use times new roman for the rest of the line, except for the last 2 sets of numbers (20 4534) which are "Tunga" font

Hope that helps. By the way, I made mine, but when I made it into a picture file, it was very hard to read when printed, so, if anyone wants to fix the one I made up, I would be glad to send it so you can make it more like the one above, with the lines around it and such, since I don't have any specialty picture programs.

So, is there really a style of business card called "scillain rail"??


BTW are you sure it's "Mergers and Acquisitions" or "Murders and Executions"?? :D

I'm also interested in at least 2 if the price is right. If it's insanely low then I'll get several.

I was in contact with a guy in New Mexico who had sets of the originals made for the production from a solid contact he had at New Line where he had first dibs on props and costumes before they cleaned house and sent them to auction. He was selling the supposed originals for a pretty penny a while back but when I contacted him a year later he said he has sold them all. Then I saw several up on Ebay a while later, again for alot of money.

I've always wanted one and so has a friend of mine. Such a great flick and an intersting character, to say the least.

Sorry guys, but I had to pull a couple of posts out of this thread. Pms will be sent to those individuals. It's been a long standing rule around there, but it bears repeating...

When I saw the first pic above, I, too, thought the area code for the FAX number was "222."

But after examining the image more closely, I'd like to suggest that it's a "1." Because the font is so stylized, it looks at first glance like a "2," but take a real good look at that top shot again and see if it doesn't turn into a "1" before your very eyes. :)

In addition, it makes much more sense for the area code of the FAX to match the area code of the phone number, "212" (which is a real New York area code).

What do you think?

FAX 212 555 6390
