Troxxy vinyl business cards.Christian Troegele from Germany presents his unique business cards – made out of original vinyl records!

You produce business cards out of vinyl. What brought you to this great idea?
After a few years in the sales and distribution business I received lots of business cards every day but they almost looked the same. They have all been made out of paper, so I asked myself if there are any alternative materials to make business cards out of different materials?

After that I created the first cards out of steel, leather, wood and gum. You should know that I am a great music fan and vinyl collector. At an evening where I was thinking about new innovative materials for business cards and alongside listened to vinyl records the idea was born. Now I have specialized in creating unique business cards made out of extraordinary materials.

Have others already jumped on this? Any competitors?

It was a long road to create a vinyl business card, so that’s why I applied for the copyright and made a brand out of it called Troxxy™ Vinylz. Troxxy™ Vinylz are original vinyl records assimilated to: Business-, club-, member-, vip- cards, visiting cards, accessory, label, marker, tally, tab, clothing label, newspaper holder, beer coaster, etc . …each one is unique, forgery-proof, barcode and qr-code compatible. And this is only the beginning of Troxxy™ Vinylz.

Isn’t the production of Troxxy™ Vinylz environmentally questionable?
Certainly not. The vinyl records have been produced already and I make something absolutely new out of something which already exists. I am not a vinyl killer I see myself as a vinyl lover who brings vinyl back to the business. You have to be a nerd and vinyl junkie for a very long time to have such an idea to make Troxxy™ Vinylz. I do NOT use any relevant records. But for some records it is more honourable to be used as an exclusively Troxxy™ Vinylz as to decay in a dusty dark stack.

Vinyl business cards by Christian Troegele.Can I print whatever I want on it, even photographs on Troxxy™ Vinylz?

Yes, but you have to know that I print white colour on black vinyl records. So if you would like to have a photograph printed at a Troxxy™ Vinylz the colour white will be silhouetted against the black vinyl.
But I also make creative traditional business cards out of paper and other materials too.

How much does one Troxxy™ Vinylz cost?
That depends of the number of pieces, material, the printed district and the design you would like to have. From a certain amount one card will cost about EUR 1.80 produced as a traditional business card.

These are all ‘Hand Made in Germany’ and each one is unique because of the different vinyl records I use. Especially the Troxxy™ Vinylz are no cheesy giveaways in the traditional way. You give somebody truly respect and appreciation they deserve in a complete new way of using business cards produced by

Who are you clients?

Everybody who will contrast himself from others and will be kept in mind in a very special way. Troxxy™ Vinylz are in particular for clients in the music industry, DJs, nerds and creative minds.

For campaigns in the music or fashion industry this would be a totally new way of marketing! Especially in the music and hip hop industry concerning how hip hop culture was founded. The b-boys in the early 80s used established things like music samples on vinyl records, developed it and made something very new out of it. I did the same the Troxxy™ Vinylz way. Generally speaking my business cards are for everybody who wants to be different and who wants to set oneself apart from others.
