On the back of a business, I have seen some neat ideas like a way to write a price quote on a yard. Including services to check.

I have seen them as well Gopher, and they are pretty interesting. Something that I started to do last year though was have a magnetic backing. This way customers can put the business cards on their frig and never forget about you.

Yes, people love them. *When I give them to people, I tell them they are magnetic and customers flip over how they love them. *I have actually got other businesses in the area to start using the magnetic cards as well because they liked them so much.

They cost me $104 for 500 full color.

I think people tend to hold on to magnetic business cards longer and that is a good thing for you.

the sell the magnetic backing at lowes 4 bucks for 20

That might do the trick. Why not make them yourself!

Are you going to be putting some together?

The only problem that I have found out with self made magnetic cards is either the front comes off, or backing loses it's magnetic ability after a little bit

Magent ones are great!

I usually get my business cards from vistaprint .com You can get 500 cards for the price of shipping alone. Usually about $5 if you watch for their specials.
