Ways to repurpose your business cards

September 17, 2018 by  

As an entrepreneur/Business person you acquire new business cards with each new role you take on.  Therefore the expected shelf life a lot of card based business cards is about two years.  By then you will have given out many and have another 150 sitting around in drawers and cardboard boxes.  That’s a lot of paper going to waste.

There are however, many alternative uses for old business cards.  Here are just some:

  1. Use as a bookmark
  2. Repurpose as a gift tag
  3. Thicker cards work well as labels for files and folders
  4. Moving box labels
  5. Use the reverse of a single sided card as a place card
  6. Keep some in your bag with crayons to keep your children entertained….for a while anyway.
  7. Use as hamster cage filler
  8. Compost the cards
  9. Cut them down and use as plant markers
