How About A Laser Cut Leaf Business Card

If you’re in the market for new business cards or a cutting-edge new advertising medium, you should take a look at this brilliant idea - your message or logo etched right onto a real leaf, no paint necessary! The resulting leaves are simple, stunning when looked at against the sunlight, and the best part is that if they are thrown away, there is no adverse effect on the environment. Design Firm Tatil Design of Brazil came up with the elegant marketing idea, which they recently used in 2008 during the 55th Cannes Advertising Festival to promote their “Designing Naturally” workshop. Natural Medium, which is what they call their amazing laser cut leaves, was so popular and well received at the festival that it won the Bronze Award for the 2009 International Design Excellence Awards in Eco Design.

I found this while just surfing around and found the whole process fascinating and brilliant. I'malways intrigued on different ways in which things can be used and still be friendly to the environment. I found the article about the leaf business cards on
