According to the printing experts, your business cards have to stand out to be effective. You don’t have to tell that to Meat Cards, the company behind a new process that actually laser prints on to beef jerky, making what are, essentially, edible business cards.
Personally, I think this is taking novelty printing to a whole new (and very strange) level. How do you transport them? Do you end up smelling like jerky all day? Do dogs follow you around? Where does the recipient store your card? Certainly not in a Rolodex, because according to the Meat Cards website, “MEAT CARDS do not fit in a Rolodex, because their deliciousness CANNOT BE CONTAINED in a Rolodex.”
Okay, that’s pretty funny, but I’m still wondering about the practical side of these cards. According to Meat Cards, they’re working on a sealing method to avoid pocket lint contamination. There is one thing I like about these cards, you can eat them after a business relationship has gone sour.
