Introduction: Business Card With Mints.

Business cards are a way of making people remember you. Basically you have to stop a potential client/contact/employer etc chucking it in the bin straight away. What better way to stop your business card being sent to it's landfilly grave than to entice the recipient with sweets. Unfortunately liquorice allsorts are frowned upon in business situations but luckily mints are corporate enough.

    I just noticed this is a rather old probably the files are long lost...but would love any suggestions out there for places to grab free templates! Thanks again!

    thanks that's a 'sweet' idea :)

    you still have 2p pieces in the UK??


    yes you are logo here, tiny mother effer. XD

    Good concept, thanks for the box template, really helpful.

    there was no net on the down load . were do you get it?


    That's pretty cool.

    A very good idea, I remember seeing some where a card (like a birthday card) that had wild-flower seed in the paper and the ink had natural fertilizer in it. If you could use that paper for a gardening business card, I sure that it would get peoples attention.

    But once you have their attention they can't go look at your company's contact details...

    Toyota has a 'green' Red Tag with the seeds already in the card. All you have to do is plant it and water it. and viola 'Wild Flowers'.

    I am always looking for something unique! This is it! A rockin' addtion ot this excellent site! thanks. Jess

    haha i want to have somthing unique, that noone else has. ooh i've got an idea tell everyone how to make one on instructables!

    I wish we could figure out a way that the box could be made without cutting off parts of the business card. In other words, once it is folded flat, it is a full-size busienss card, rather than the cut out as you show. Hmmm.

    I think a box could be made similar to a scaled-down version of the stereotypical "Chinese takeout" boxes, where the excess paper at the corners is folded into triangular flaps. Since a business card is so small you wouldn't have to use glue to hold it together, just cut slits into the lid so it can be tucked in to close.

    I would never give this to a potential client..simply because you've already opened and handled the mints. Its not a sealed container as the tic-tacs are in before you opened them and put them in. A better and or different option would be to peel the label off of the Tic-Tac container and rebrand it with your company's information to maintain the integrity or the 'unspoiled' qualities of the mints. Many people would frown on this. I know for sure I don't eat candies that have already been opened, or have been left out in a bowl for the public (parties put on by my friends etc are a different story.) Hope I don't sound mean or pompous or anything..just trying to bring a different perspective to the mix.

    I think you just have to use your digression. I'm not a huge fan of these frowning types but in real life some people as you say might be worried. I think the actual risk is very low, at no point did I touch the mints for example and the glossy paper provides a better barrier than regular paper would. However this doesn't stop people having inhibitions. All I can say is that if some people are prepared to dumpster dive, then all but the most paranoid people can surely eat repackaged mints. bring up some very valid points. It really depends on what industry you are in and what demographic you are going after. sometimes people can be paranoid for sure! I
