I just made some of my very first business cards for my soon-to-be Etsy shop.
In keeping with the earth-friendly nature of my handcrafts I decided to design a rubber stamp and make my own cards. I went to none other than Office Depot for the stamp and the process was very easy. Not to mention I ordered my stamp on a Monday night and found it on the Estate doorstep on Friday morn! So for less than the cost of having about 250 business cards printed on eco-friendly paper, I ordered a rubber stamp and bought some ink.
So what am I stamping on, you ask? Why, empty boxes (such as the Saltines and pasta boxes used here) that are going into the recycle bin anyways. Traced a business card as a template and cut them to size.
Backs are vivid and kind of funny (love the nutritional data!).
To finish, I’m threading a small piece of green thread near the bird’s beak on each card. Until I need lots of cards that is…
This way I can make cards as I need them, which cuts down on waste as well. Perfect for a business selling upcycled handcrafts.
