My wife's shop now accepts Bitcoins and I am working on putting up signs saying "Bitcoin accepted here" with the possibility of doing a 10% discount which would get people curious about how to get 10% off.

The thing is, my wife is not tech savvy at all and does not understand Bitcoins. Is there a business card out there that can be given out with basic information on Bitcoins and an easy guide for people to understand how to get Bitcoins so that they can spend them at her shop?

I've been printing posters up you could use if i made some small changes to get your shops name on them and have the capacity to print buisness cards(higher cost than the posters i'm affraid due to needing to buy perforated card stock)

I'm sure the designer who made the posters could do a buisness card design if you were to request it

I already did about 70% of the work here:

I think you can easily modify the template to say exactly what you want,  and then have someone print them.

looks like a double sided design i could print that easily enough, and as for the print shop that would print a few thousand i'd do that just don't have a few thousand cards worht of card stock on hand
maybe i should do some math and open a proper bitcoin print shop

That will be a challenge. For the average not so techie user, there are a lot steps between not knowing what bitcoin is and having a cell phone with a bitcoin wallet. You have to transfer money to an exchange, wait a few days, buy bitcoins, find a wallet app for your phone and learn how to send bitcoins there. And unfortunately, the 10% discount might as well vanish as the bitcoin price decreases...

Maybe you should just stick to the "we accept bitcoins"? If a user goes through all this trouble because of 10% and the bitcoin price drops to $4 (very likely to happen), he just lost 20% of his money. He will not be happy about it and he will be mad at you and at bitcoins Tongue

But good luck with that. It's a great iniciative.

I like the simplicity of the text and how it affects the merchant.

Something similar for consumers would be perfect.

Something like:
Bitcoin is a safe to use currency that is great for paying for things online and in person.

Paying with Bitcoin is easy with just a few clicks on your cell phone.

No more worrying about carrying cash or credit cards, everything you need to shop is on your phone.

How do I get Bitcoin?
There are several companies that convert your current currency into Bitcoins.
http://www.mtgox.com
http://www.tradehill.com

Or for an easy way to get Bitcoins:
    1. Open a free account at ExchangeBitcoins.com
    2. Go to the deposit page, make a reservation, and print the instructions.
    3. Make a cash deposit at any of thousands of bank locations nationwide.
    4. Purchase some Bitcoins.
