I’ve ordered from Moo on a few occasions and have always found their products, customer service, and marketing to be top notch. I’ve had a set of business cards in the works for a few weeks now, but kept thinking, “There’s something just… off. They’re not perfect. I’m gonna hold off until they’re just right.” But guess what, kids? That’s my perfectionist side talking. And it’s not like ordering a box of 50 business cards is an irrevocable, irreversible, lifetime commitment. So, I logged into Klout on a whim today, and, lo and behold, they’re offering a perk of 50 free Moo cards! I started trying to cram my previous card design into the options provided, got frustrated, and walked away and went about my day. Came back to it tonight, had a brainstorm, questioned the hell out of it, and finally said KIRSTEN YOU NEED TO STOP BEING A JERK TO YOURSELF AND JUST PLACE THE DAMNED ORDER. So I did. And this is what they will look like.
My thought was, how often do we end up with a business card but can’t remember why, or what we talked to the person about? I know it happens to me fairly frequently, especially if I go to a trade show, networking event, or other gathering at which I collect multiple cards from folks all offering similar services. So this way, I can jot a reminder of our conversation on the image side of the card, giving it a personal touch at the same time. I of course sat here thinking of a million reasons this was a dumb idea, but in the end? I would think it was pretty rad and original if someone else did it. So there ya have it. A couple of weeks from now, they will be in my hot lil hands, and I will feel a tiny bit more like I’m for real and stuff. Also, I need to purchase more ultra fine point purple Sharpies to be sure I have one at all times. Because it just wouldn’t do for the note not to match. Plus I never miss an excuse for new office supplies.
