Business card that sprouts

Check out this lovely design for a business card that sprouts a miniature garden when you dip it in water:
The result was a business card that worked like a miniature house-plant, growing alfalfa or cress when dipped in water - a business card for 'another bloomin' designer'.

The logo was also cut into a 'seed stencil' that allowed the logo to be grown on either earth or lawn; on uncut grass, the message would remain hidden until the area was mown.

Update: Stella sez, "Here is another creative business card that sprouts a landscape. The card is for a landscape architecture firm. On the card is a printed plan of a landscape design of a miniature garden. Seeds are embedded within the card so in just a couple of days the seeds will sprout through the holes of the print.


  1. Even though Earch Day 2008 had passed I was wondering if anyone knew some truly “green” printing companies that are on the cheaper end.

    Of the “non-green” printing companies, I do highly recommend 4FocusFX Printing … .. I think they try to be green, but from the many orders I’ve placed through them, they’re definitely NOT green at all.
