If you're running any kind of business, business cards are kind of a fact of life, aren't they? For crafty biz owners trying to keep it green while also keeping overhead low, sustainable promotional materials can be a big challenge. There are green printing companies out there, but if your margins are low you can't always pony up for premium business cards and flyers.
Over at Crafting a Green World (full disclosure: I am the site director there), Julie Finn shares a simple, beautiful tutorial for making upcycled business cards using scrap paper and your sewing machine! I love how she incorporates cute details like decorative stitches while staying practical about including your business information and sticking to standard sizes that your customers expect.
