Yes it is true once I agree with your opinion, this will have a good impact if done by giving a business card will be a pride for the bitcoin release.

It's a very good idea for you to do, to reward someone with bitcoin, I'll try to do your idea well, and that's fun.

I've never really understood the concept of gift cards in physical form or anything like that. It would be more practical to just send them the Bitcoin directly. They would only need a Bitcoin address and private key for it. I guess gift cards have sentimental value, but is it worth spending the money on a physical gift card? Plus, for anyone who cares about the environment then sending it directly is better too...

There is a way.

1. Create a MyBitcoin account.
2. Use http://www.promoprintinggroup.com/shortrun.htm or similar to print scratch tickets with the account name and password.
3. Distribute.

You could even have online activation to prevent people from stealing cards with value on them. You create a MyBitcoin.com account with a secret password, deposit the bitcoins in the account, print the user name and a different password on the card. When you receive payment for the card, you simply change the password to the password that's on the card. Ideally, you would actually create your own bitcoin redemption website instead of using MyBitcoin.com since they might not appreciate all the disposable accounts. If you don't have a problem with fractional reserve principles, you could print a lot more cards than you have bitcoins and deposit the bitcoins from your reserve whenever a card is sold. You use the proceeds from the sold cards to purchase more bitcoins. Spikes in the price of bitcoins could cause a problem, but if you somehow made the price of the cards dynamically dependent on the current exchange rate then it wouldn't be a problem.
