Quirky Business Card Idea …..

Whilst feeding baby Olive the other day a tweet popped up in the corner of my screen the joys of TweetDeck.
It said … ‘masking tape business cards‘ … er you can’t bypass that information! So I quickly checked it out.


Here is the image (please do go and check out Lovely Stationary full of lush items … makes me wish I was more artistic with the camera) and I thought WOW this is amazing.
My mind was whirling with all the amazing possibilities for usage via Charlie Moo’s – I was in my own little creative oasis. I started to google places that could print this magic tape for me and it was going to be AMAZING!

I shared in excitement my discovery with Daddy Moo who looked at me puzzled and blank.
Apparently this is nothing new.
They were doing this circa 2008 when Daddy Moo wore a suit and was miserable.

Way to burst my bubble .. I think I’m still going to get some though 😉
Do you have an unusual business card? I’d love to see!

    thats gorgeous! would be nice used when packaging orders. Ive got some new ones with a spot uv logo on. Ive stopped using my vistaprint ones as they are far too common, wanted some thing people would look twice at 😀

    Great idea but yes I have seen it being used. But fabulous way of advertising especially on packaging!

    I love my business cards – learn a sign and get my details! I’ll find the link….

    Did you find a UK supplier, Joanne? I LOVE this too and haven’t ever seen it before – getting ridiculously excited about duct tape over breakfast..!

    Fab idea! I’ve seen branded names on packaging tape before but never really thought about using it with this level of information on.
    I have some standard card business cards and also some magnet ones which I prefer as you get more of a reaction when you give them out! Plus more chance of someone else seeing it if it is stuck to a fridge =)

    love it! hmn … I could put it on the back of each of mt frames, since they are sealed with (framing) tape anyway … one strip of business card tape and three of framing tape. Hmn ….. wonder what else I could use it for?

    I too have some ordinary business cards and some of the same design in fridge magnets. I put the fridge magnets in with orders.

    Mmmm I should really give some proper thought to business cards… it’s been left on the to do list / muddle through approach for too long!

    yeah this tape looks more like masking tape stuff, which makes it nicer then printed packaging tape

    Love it, great for putting on orders. I’ve never seen it before.

    That looks fab – I’m sure I could find a use for it!
