This is the Summer of Declutter(ing). Progress is painfully slow; perhaps a sequel will be in order.
Of the few things I have done, there is one task that I have thoroughly enjoyed! I’ve reviewed about half of the magazines in my magazine bin, tearing out interesting articles and recipes and such so that I can recycle the remainder. (Tidbit: Did you know that ads compose 50 percent of the pages in a typical magazine? Another convincing reason for me to clean out the bin.)
In Country Living‘s 2008 Women Entrepreneurs issue, I found a one-page article discussing the importance of a remarkable business card. The content was sparse, but the photography caught my eye!
I love the colors, the various fonts and graphic elements, and the shapes and sizes. I would love to have all those cards, to have and to hold . . .
That, however, would be in direct violation of the Summer of Declutter(ing) mandate. Sigh.
A few of the cards beckoned me to hunt for the company’s Web site. The lime green card to the right for Tribbles Home & Garden didn’t disappoint! The site is as lovely as the card design. SHINE Home made me smile! So very creative, and I love the home address, shineeveryday.com.
What joy when a business card gives a sneak peak of what awaits in cyberspace! Something about the integration and echo puts everything in place, in purpose.
So it’s true. Business cards do pack a powerful punch in a small package. Be sure to make yours worthwhile.
