You can use the bad cards to drop in drawnings they have for business owners. The ones where you just drop your business card in.

Thats what I do with my old ones or misprints. I won a free dinner at Dennys 2 times in the card drawing. They do it where I get my hair cut to.

Just an idea so they don't go completely to waste.

Also you can go to walmart and get a stack of 100 peel and stick business card magnets for about $17. You just peel off the paper and stick your card on there. If the misprint is on the back you can stick them on there and send them out with your invoices or keep them handy to give out to people. Thats what I do.

With the magnet idea, you could also take those big flat ones that have calendars and such printed on them and glue them to the back of the cards. Then just cut the magnets around the cards, and voila!

Those are all great ideas!


Yeah, it would be a waste to not use the bad cards anymore. I think i'm going to make magnets like you guys said and then just keep the others ones around. Yeah i could use them to drop in drawings, too!

Thanks for he ideads!

Luke,

If you go to Staples or Office Max or something like that, they have magnets with a sticky side you can attach business cards too and its really cheap.

I think people tend to hang onto business card magnets longer than just business cards.

Let us know if you get any.

Yeah I'm going to go get some magnetic backs for the cards this weekend. Like you said, the customers will probably hang on to magnets longer then just a regular business card.

It's good for them to have them cause then they can just stick it on the refridgerator and then always have my contact info handy.

Thanks fir the ideas guys!

Luke
