The Eve of Reduction Gets Business Cards!

In the last year, I’ve seen reporter queries looking for examples of alternative business cards. I thought, what a great idea. Everywhere I’ve worked I’ve gotten business cards and then something’s changed: a new cell number, an updated company logo, office moves, etc. What a waste. The next time I’m bored I’m going to make a sculpture out of the business cards I haven’t used.

So, I checked out articles on alternative business cards and what to my wondering eyes did I find, suggestions of pens and do-dad crap from China. I was like, okay, I guess I missed the point of alternative to business cards.

Then, I devised my own, green alternative. I bought a tag hole punch initially to turn used greeting cards into gift tags. Now I use it to turn junk mail, cards and book covers into business cards. I bought a couple rubber stamps with our logo and information to stamp on the blank, backside of my tags.

I even made a business card holder out of an Orbit’s gum box covered in wrapping paper.
Now, that’s an earth-friendly alternative to mass produced, largely wasted business cards.

I’m Cristin Frank (AKA Eve). I love all things frugal and crafty. My mindset is always on upcycling, repurposing, reducing waste and saving money – and Eve of Reduction is my roadmap. You might also want to check out my book, "Living Simple, Free & Happy."
