Introduction: Creative Business Card Alternative

Here's a fun business card alternative that I like to do.
These are business rocks, made from lake stones.

Step 1: Find a Beach or River

Find a beach or river where you can collect small flat stones.
Be sure to have permission to take stones if it's on private property, and only take stones from places where you're permitted to.

Step 2: Prep the Stones

Clean 'em with soap water, then dry them. It's not that complicated.

Step 3: Make It a Business Rock!

Use a fine tipped sharpie and write out all the information you'd normally give out on a business card. I usually put my name, phone number and email address.

Step 4: Thoughts

This is a fun and creative way to hand out contact information. People aren't going to forget this very easily if you give them one.
One downside is that they don't fit in wallets. An upside, on the other hand, is that no one else has business cards like these!

I think the key is, they're not little business card shaped pieces of card, anything unusual and creative is bound to attract more attention and therefore more buisness. Well Done.

Lol sucks if you have bad handwriting, though. And maybe it was a bad idea to put this up since now you're not the only one who does it... Haha liking the idea of throwing them randomly for people to find. Nice 'ible.

Or you can scatter them for advertisement!

SHARPIE!! This is awesome! Five stars and faved.

and if your clients don't like you they have a rock to throw at you
