Eco-friendly business cards never felt so good…literally

Thursday, November 3rd, 2011

If you’re not going Green, then you’re not cool. Yes I said it. Nowadays everything is going Green from Cemetery plots to your personal business cards. As I perused the world wide web, I stumbled across a few ideas for eco-friendly business cards with various textures. Just imagine the look on your face if someone handed you a leaf with their contact information printed on it. Below are a few examples of eco-friendly business cards which serve as one of many conscious attempts to preserve the environment. While you’re looking, make a mental note of your favorite to pass along to your friends, family and co-worker!

Reuse old packaging boxes to create your own one-of-a-kind business card. Although you would not want to do this for more than just a few cards at a time, it is a great way to create special business cards for your important prospects, and it is eco-friendly! This business card for Fiverr came from a MacBook Pro box. Rather than printing the text on such bulky material, Kaufman stamped them on, which really fit into the packaged look well.

Leaf Business Cards: Tatil Design

Go green all the way with these real leaf business cards. Your logo and information are laser etched into the leaf with no ink required. Throw them out and you don’t have to worry about harming the environment—they’re leaves!

Moo Eco Friendly Business Cards

These business cards are printed on 100% recycled paper and the card box (where you store your card and others too!) is also made from 100% recyclable pulp. Now you don’t have to worry about your cards getting creases and wrinkled when you put them in your bag and all the while you are doing our planet a favor.

Sustainable Cards for a Sustainable Company

Sometimes the most economical business card is one that uses sustainable materials, such as this one designed for a sustainable furniture business. Notice that the design uses only one color of ink: black. Beside the large logo, there are no big graphics. The text is also short and sweet to limit the amount of ink used.
