So I used to have a business. And now I don't (officially) anymore. I still do the occasional session, but not very often, & usually for barter or super cheap or in exchange for the rights to use & sell images.
A friend of mine,
who is in the same mindset as I am, posted on Facebook about purchasing
moo mini cards. Now, I had the sample pack of moo cards made up over
two years ago with some of my photos & loved them... but couldn't
justify making business cards when I felt my style was evolving & I
honestly didn't have a large enough portfolio to pull from.
I started thinking about it. I checked out moo's pricing for the mini cards. It seemed really reasonable. I thought about how many people I meet & how often I write my blog URL down. Then, the clouds parted & angels appeared (no, not at all, that is not how this story goes, but it does lend a certain melodrama). It all became clear. Just because I do not have a business, does not mean I cannot get a calling card!
Thus, these beauties were born. (1. a small selection of cards. 2. a collage of the images used. 3. the backside of the cards. 4. packaging!!!)
The best part? When I placed my order (Aug. 29), I got an estimate that the cards would arrive on Sept. 12. When I received my confirmation email, the moo bot guesstimated a delivery date of Sept. 7. I actually received my cards by Sept. 1 at the latest, which was when I went downstairs to get my mail. So really, any time between the Tuesday night I ordered them (at 11:30 pm!), & after the Wednesday morning "shipped" email (8 am!) is fair game for actual arrival at my door.
And check out the cute box with a filing system! EEP!
So, if you happen to meet me somewhere in the future... I just may have a cute card for you! (Maybe that's how you got here in the first place, eh?!?!)
So... ridiculous, or genius investment?
