"I think an important point I also took away from that session (and the rest of the day) was that I really need to invest in business cards. People kept asking me for my card, and I didn’t have any! Lesson learned." Laura, A Little Boutique Near Home
..this confirmed my thoughts that Recycled Fashion needs business cards too. Whilst out on op shop tours, visiting vintage fashion markets, or merely speaking with people that have an interest in Recycled Fashion, having business cards to hand out can be a great way to establish future connections.
Keeping to the style and ethics of this blog, instead of obtaining new business cards, I've opted for a self stamping ink pad (also seen on Recycled Market), which has been custom made (ordered via Save the Date on Etsy). This way, I can make my own business cards, using recycled cardboard. I find empty facial tissue boxes work a treat, as their decorative side is so pretty.

Its a bit of a long process, however, it means whenever I need more business cards, I reach for the nearest cardboard box, and get stamping!
