Business Can Be a Dangerous Place - The Peanut Business card
Posted Jan 22 2009 6:37pm
You have a meeting with a new Japanese client that you are trying to make a good impression on. In your hand you have your proposal and business cards all ready to distribute. After the introductions your new colleagues hand you their unusual new business cards, and you recoil in horror, unsure of what to do. Why the fear you ask, well, these business cards are the newest trend in unique promotion, they are laser printed PEANUTS.
A Japanese company named Arigatou is using high grade CO2 laser engraving technology to print logos, names and telephone numbers on organic materials like beans, rice and peanuts. These “ Taberu Me” cards cost a bit more than regular cards, a set of 150 costs 5,800 yen (around $50). Great, peanut business cards....what will they think of next.
So of course this got me started on thinking on other alternatives for anyone thinking of investing in the Peanut business cards. (Please don't.......)
