Promotional Business Card Shredder

Instead of a business card, give them this with your company logo on it.

Everybody gives out pens and such that often get tossed. This would probably be kept on the desks of most people it was given to. I'd use it a lot.

Battery powered and not much bigger than the business cards it's designed to shred, make a statement to your client about the competition.

"Thanks for the meeting Bob, here's something to use after your meetings with other vendors."

Have it say something like: "Doctor Remulac 3's Brain Confunction Service - We shred the competition"

Hand-held shredder https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00EY1TD4U/
There are already hand-held, human-powered paper shredders. Creating a portable, branded version would be pretty easy. [aguydude, Sep 07 2019]


       [+] Your competitors will retaliate with business cards designed to jam the mechanism.

       That's ok, technical competition spawns innovation.

       My business has a shredder for your shredder.

       Darn, I though this would shred them into cool shapes like linked men.

       //That's ok, technical competition spawns innovation//
Yes, exactly: that's why I voted for the idea.

       //technical competition spawns innovation//   

       Like the business card shredder shredder Dr Worm mentioned which would of course lead to the creation of the business card shredder shredder shredder.

       The shredder shredder shredder, which moved under its own power, to seek out and destroy competitors' shredder shredders, was banned last year after a malfunctioning unit shredded a pet gerbil. I hear rumors, though, that BorgCo is developing a larger model for cats.

       Yup. It'll be in the Fall 2010 catalog ...

       It also shreds catalogs.

       //It also shreds catalogs//
Yet another mis-application of regular expressions. Somebody obviously used /cat.*/ where they should have put /cats?/

       I don't feel I have the sufficient wit to add to the jokes, so let me just say: Bun [+].

       // used /cat.*/ where they should have put /cats?/ //   

       Thise wildcards will get you every time.   

       // I don't feel I have the sufficient wit to add to the jokes //   

       Don't let that make you feel small or inferior, even if you are ....
