Make Business Card Rings for Your Next Craft Show!

By on Friday, May 27, 2011 8 Comments

This tutorial by Upcycling Your Life on Aisle 3 is pure marketing genius.

Faced with the challenge of trying to get potential craft show customers to take a business card and also to increase the chances of them retaining it, she came up with her utterly clever mini-business card rings at one exhibition!

These unusual crafty rings are fun, memorable and most crucially, have her Etsy shop name printed on the inside.

Everyone loves freebies, right? The rings were so successful she had people running off to fetch their friends to come get their own.  They sure turned out to be super booth "magnets".  She ran out of rings but not actual business cards!

The people who make and sell peel and stick fabric sheets for printers are now going to wonder why sales are going up!

  1. This is one very clever idea. Yes most people will either decline a business card or they'll take one only to toss it or loss it later. It's a really great way for people to actually keep your information and possibly generate future business. Love it !!!
