You people are all retarded. READ THE HEADLINE!!!!!!!!!!! It says RECESSION business cards, not ENVIRONMENTAL!!! Therefor it is saving on the cost of paper. Plus, just because there's 10 designs, doesn't mean you produce anymore - great idea, great execution

The idea is quite an inspiration, I guess the real truth is, its not about the ideas or about saving paper. Its about telling companies that even during recession you should try to advertise. This is just a way the agency is trying to get attention, like the effort.
