I saw these business cards on Brand New for an Italian cooking instructor. They’re made of lasagna and laser-etched with the contact info.
I have cause to believe this is the world’s best business card. Why:
- Clever and inventive
- Direct and to-the-point
- The medium is the message, like our old buddy Marshall McLuhan would tell us
- “Pasta Boy Peter” is an incredible business/service name. I want to be known as Pasta Boy Jimmy
- Just LOOK at this
- LOOK at it
- It’s great
- I love it
- It’s so good
- Look at it
The only detractors: I wonder how well they stack and how fragile they are. Which is more of a concern of the person passing them out than the person receiving them, I suppose. I bet if you got one of these you’d hang on tight to it and cherish it. I would, anyway.
If it did shatter in your briefcase or pocket, however, you would undoubtedly be able to remember “Pasta Boy Peter”.
