My good friends Susie and Heidi were in town last week from LA. We met up for dinner here. After a few minutes of catching up pleasantries, Susie said something that surprised me. “I want to give you my new business card.” Now I’ve known these sisters for almost fifteen years. I have all their contact info. But Susie had such a smile on her face handing me the card. And I know why.
The design of the card is simple. Logo, phone number, website. I complimented her on the update. Talked about paper stock (we are designers after all), and slipped the card into my jacket. We carried on with our evening.
Next day, I found the card nestled in my wallet. Two things made me smile: Susie’s name in a massive swirly-magenta-scripty font. It took me back in time to Mrs. Davis’ first grade class. All my desk objects (pencils, notebook, crayons,) had my first name HEATH written large and in charge. Second: the design on the back. When I flipped the card over, the pattern made me think of Michigan J. Frog singing “Hello My Baby, Hello My Honey, Hello My Rag Time Gal”, just like the cartoon.
I’ve never had a business card make me this happy. It perfectly summed up Susie and her business. Next time I need a little cheering up I know what to look for in my wallet.
Question: How is your business card looking? Maybe your website could use some love. If so, we would love to help out.
