5 Alternative uses for business cards

Tagged with:

We know that business cards can be a truly personal thing, a small piece of merch that done right, can help you portray who you are in a heartbeat. Making the right impression is key, which is exactly why our range is so extensive. From cards printed on recycled stock or foil pressed on our Heidelberg, to our handy square numbers and colour layered options , we have something for everyone.


However, business cards aren’t just for dishing out your details. Over the years we’ve seen some pretty ingenious alternative uses for these handy sized pieces of print. Here are our top 5 alternative uses for business cards.


5 alternative uses for business cards

1) Loyalty cards


Everyone loves being rewarded and loyalty cards are a brilliant idea to keep your customers returning. Whether you’re a craft coffee shop or a pop up pizza bar, our business cards are the perfect wallet sized option to get your reward scheme up and running.


Why not try our self-inking stamps to create a loyalty card marker unique to your business? With up to 20,000 impressions, it will keep you going even with the most eager of customers.

2) Gift Vouchers


Our folded and tri-folded business cards are an awesome option for gift vouchers, allowing you to include your branding, as well as making room for all your gift certificate info and  important bits like expiry dates and T&C’s.

3) Appointment cards


Many of our business cards are used as a handy appointment reminder by tattoo artists, hair dressers, and anyone else hoping to keep their customers punctual. When choosing paper stock for appointment cards it’s important to pick one which will allow you to easily write directly onto the card. Our recycled stock is perfect for this.

4) Music download cards


Music download cards have become a staple for bands and record labels, offering them out with purchases of vinyl, cd and even cassette tapes. Business cards fit perfectly within the packaging allowing you to give links to your bandcamp page, online merch stores and social accounts.


5) Thank you cards


Whether you’re a small maker selling on etsy or a larger scale online store, a thank you card which includes  your branding and social media handles is a great way to keep customers engaged after their purchase.

We’ve even had them used as wedding favours, with custom thank you cards being given out to guests.
