(mild derail) Anybody remember those CD business cards? Had to love it when an administrator or executive would stick one in their Mac or some other slot-loading disc drive.
Nothing wrong with labelling "This is the front, this is the pictorial side, the more informative side is the back, that's the other side, you need to flip this around in order to see the other side, the back, that is"
I just tried out my business card sample pack. I went to a bunch of local printshops and ad agencys and asked about freelancing for them. The response to the front and back layout was awesome. I had several people tell me that they would be sending work my way. All I had to do when they asked for my card was hand them the stack of of cards and say "Take your pick". It worked just like a pocket portfolio and it got people vested in choosing their favorite.
Only one guy didn't flip the cards over. He looked at them and handed them back and asked if I had a card. To which I handed them back again. He said he didn't realize that they were business cards because they were too nice.
Anyway since I've given away my free samples, I just went and ordered 100cards and did a google search for a promotional code. I managed to get them 50% off. If you can't tell, I'm estatic! This was the first time I ever went out and self-promoted and it went a lot better than I thought it would.
here's the 50% OFF @ moo.com promotional code: TWNDQB
Sorry, I don't know how long it lasts.
