Here is a pretty unique idea for a business card that sets “another bloomin’ designer” apart from the pack. That’s what your business card is supposed to do, of course!
Originally spotted by Geisha Asobi’s blog, Boing Boing’s Cory Doctorow says of this little marketing masterpiece:
Check out this lovely design for a business card that sprouts a miniature garden when you dip it in water. “The result was a business card that worked like a miniature house-plant, growing alfalfa or cress when dipped in water — a business card for another bloomin’ designer.” The logo was also cut into a “seed stencil” that allowed the logo to be grown on either earth or lawn; on uncut grass, the message would remain hidden until the area was mown.”
If you are still not fully leveraging these cost-effective little cards to market yourself and your business–you have missed the boat. They are worth more than their weight in gold! Check out our various articles about marketing with business cards to see just how flexible they can be and at so little cost.
