Today I went to deliver the artwork for my new business cards to the printer.
Last year I handed out a lot of cards at the Country Living show and I have been amazed at how many people have obviously kept them and got in touch many months later.
Having something visual seems to work for me as people stick it to their fridge because they like the photo.
As I am now going to be doing mail order - and as I have almost run out of my old cards - I thought that we needed a change. As the business does lots of different things I have gone for 4 different cards - one general, one weddings, one mail order and one with a map to show where we are. They can either be given out seperately or as a group with a punched hole and ribbon.
I'm also intending to have a blank postcard so that I can use it as a gift card/compliments slip.
It was a bit of a gulp signing the cheque but nothing ventured. . . . . . .
The nice people at Country Living are going to try and get some into the compimentary bags at the show for me - I missed the deadline for them being part of the London based packing (what a job!) but they can go at the front desk and be put in ad hoc.
I would stick them to my fridge. Graphic design as always by the talented Kate Watt.
