The Stickard.

As a businessman, I’m always thinking about how to get the word out. So when we printed elephant stickers 2.5 years ago–and they quickly began appearing all over notebooks, bumpers, bikes and yoga studios–well, I shoulda printed more right away. But stickers are made out of P.V.C. (bad). It took me two years to think up this eco(ish) solution: print your business card on the back. You’ll save some trees. Unlike paper stickers, P.V.C. lasts forever, a basic principle of sustainability. Each staff member gets a different color, with different info. Be sure not to perforate the back, and print ‘em in the U.S.A.

    Love it! True, the elephant sticker is ubiquitous. Can your recommend a particularly earth-friendly printer?

    Me too! How do I make some for my company? I have a conference coming up in September and I'd love to have some of these to distribute.

  3. […] Or, as Longchenpa, another great Buddhist teacher put it…well, the quote’s on the back of my stickard: […]

  4. Blogging like you do is such an art and you obviously have that skill here – I don’t but I did find this that made me smile so maybe I can return the favour by making you smile too?

    Wise people think all they say; fools say all they think. 🙂
