Default Business card idea!!

I was on the way home from grocery store and woman behind me in line picked up my change I dropped. I had to move to bag my own grocerys when I did she was quicker than I to pick up my coins.So that led me to think if my business card was a 1/2 doller bill on one side and my logo on the other gaurenteed to be picked up by all who sees??? I think this winter I am going to put my evil / yet awesome idea to work.

Cool idea. Treasury department might not share your enthusiasm.

Never argue with a fool - they will drag you down to their level, then beat you with experience.

I had a buddy that used these all the time, but he was not in this line of work.

The look VERY realistic!

I think I'd piss me off if I bent over and picked one of these up to just find out it was an attention-grabbing ploy...back to the ground it would flyyyy...this just does not seem at all professional to me.

Agree with you there Y, it would be annoying to the point of it wasn't real money, as we all like a good find don't we?
Tho' it is worth a bash just to get your name out and about isn't it?.

I think KC Remodelers link http://dollarcardmarketing.com/ where the guy was saying just hand out your cards as normal was a good idea. It is something different (till everyone else does it, anyway). JMO

Why would a remodeler/architect be on a paint forum and why was he let in the doors. Just wondering. Not to be offensive KC but are you a painter. Why would you post links on your 1st post? Why haven't you done a interdiction yet. I would think contractor talk would be more appropriate for someone in your line of work.

remodelers are involved with the painting industry. we have a bunch of people in related trades - like wallcovering

Welcome KC. How about introducing yourself in the intro section

Bill, You have to admit the two high lighted questions are legitimate questions. I will let you get away with this one, I guess.
