Business cards play a huge role in networking. It allows people to have your details with them at any time and to contact you whenever there is an opportunity.

This is a special ink that can conduct electricity. If the card is placed on a smart device such as a tablet or phone, the conductive ink will transmit the contact information to the smartphone immediately. 

This can be done easily enough and save you the frustration of losing business cards. 

2. Balloons 

It might not be the best idea especially when the balloons are deflated but it’s certainly a creative idea. Of course, the user has to blow up the balloon when they want to access your contact information. 

It might not be a good alternative to using business cards but depending on when and how you will use the balloons, it’s an alternative all the same. 

3. Beer Mats 

You can go the extra mile and use beer mats as business cards. However, there is a huge risk of people using it as a coaster. 

If there’s a water ring on the contact information, it will appear unprofessional depending on the exact situation. You need to decide whether or not it’s convenient. Personalise your beer mat for the best results.

6. Spice Sachet 

It’s a cute idea to have your contact information but there’s the disadvantage of the sachet being disposed of immediately after use. 

Who knows people might choose to keep them as mementoes and will always have your information when they need it. 

7. Coasters 

These are actually very useful and are quite durable compared to beer mats. You can create coasters made out of wooden because they are less expendable and are actually quite attractive.
