Business Cards

Business cards are a simple and inexpensive way for your council to promote Freegle and are a good alternative when a poster may not be appropriate. Business cards can be handed out at your events, left at council owned or managed buildings for distribution or sent out with mailshots.

A generic Freegle business card graphic is available but If you want another size or a specific design for your council, just email

There are lots of places that you can leave business cards…

  • Cafes
  • Cinemas
  • Arrange with friendly retailers to hand them out (usually ones with green aspirations).
  • Supermarket noticeboards
  • Corner shops and newsagents
  • Estate agents
  • Repair stores
  • Takeaways
  • Charity shops – suggest they can hand them to people who offer electrical or other stuff they can’t take in their shops.
  • Chemists
  • Carpet shops – good because they have lots of waste such as bits of carpet, wrapping, tubes etc.
  • Churches, Synagogues and any other places of worship often have outreach projects and are happy to dish out the cards.
  • Pubs & clubs
  • Train stations
  • Doctors and dentist surgeries
  • By skips and bins (be selective with this option!)
