  • pictures of business cards??

    I am always curious as to what those of you who do scrolling as a business present as a business card. I wanted to share mine just to get opinions but wasn't sure if we were allowed to do that. On the surface I can't see why we wouldn't but I've learned when in doubt, ask.
    So I'm asking...can we post pictures of our business cards? I would love to see some of what the members here present to customers as a way of promoting your business. It might also inspire newcomers.

    Here is mine from Vista Print. I also have a simple one I print off with card stock.

      Very nice; very clean looking. I love the wood grain.

        Scott, you might want to fix your image so that your home and cell phone numbers aren't visible out here on the internet.

        When I was putting my card together, I put up quite a few versions of it to get feed back from my peers here. Everyone was very helpful, and made me consider things from another perspective. I'm glad I did. I made many revisions until I ended up with a card I really liked...

          Personally I don't think it is a great idea to post your personal information on an open forum. However it is up to each individual.

            I'm watching this thread because I'm trying to come up with a name for my woodworking and a business card.
            Cathy's Wood Crafts sounds so generic.
            I was thinking......."Outback Woodshop".
            What do ya'll think?

                My wife came up with another possibility since I don't have a business card yet. She is taking some of my stuff to a craft show tomorrow. She thought some pictures of what I've made along with my contact info could be printed off the computer and then taped to the bags we use when something is sold. She figured we could either tape it on or use some crack and peel from the shop here.

                  I'm not familiar with the term crack and peel? I would not tape it to the bag I'd have them laying out for people to take one and I would place one in each bag. Most important part is to get you and your name out there.

                  Let us know how the show goes and ask your other half to take some pics.

                    Crack and peel is just a type paper we have here at the shop for people who need labels printed. It's split in the back so all you need to do is crack it on the back, peel it off and affix it to whatever.

                    It will be a first time show for us. It's about an hour and a half from here. Her sister and brother in law go all the time with their stuff. He does mostly oak shelves and oak blanket holders. She's going on her own. It's opening day of pheasant season and I told her way back when that I probably wouldn't be going. My son is really looking forward to going hunting with his dad and grampa even though his arm is still in a cast. (He'll just be walking, not old enough for shotgun yet. Next year) At least her sister and brother in law will be there tomorrow to help her out.

                      Just for the record,
                      I came up with the name Featherwood Woodcrafts because the first thing I attempted to produce for sale was hand carved feathers.

                      Here's my card for food for thought...

                      I downloaded a template from Vistaprint for PhotoShop and made a custom card. I'm pretty pleased with how it came out, and the price was pretty good too....

                          I wish I'd thought of that......
                          And guess what! I just ordered my cards.
                          Oh well......people will get used to it. It'll do.
                          Maybe next time I order cards I could change it. I only ordered 250.

                          If I change it next time I could have printed on the back...."Previously......"

                            You may be able to contact them and make a change. It is worth a try.

                              Well it said on the VistaPrint site once the order is placed you can't change it.
                              I'll just deal with it.
                              I will change it next time. Main thing I just wanted to have a card with my name, number and email to attach to the back of my wood pieces so they will know who did it and for contact.
                              But thanks for the suggestion......I will change it next time I order.

                                Linda,
                                Quote, I kept my old computer even though it was barely alive simply due to one particular program...Picassa by Google...which they removed from the market years ago. It worked like a combo photo and editing program but easier. It could take a photo and change it to a line drawing beautifully...

                                There is a free software package by GLARY Utilities by glarysoft that our local computer club uses to clean junk off do hard drives and defrag. They recommend running it monthly. You should also check for malware which most antivirus software does not prevent.

                                Actually, Jim, I'm delighted that making bowls with the scroll saw is still a viable part of the scroll saw repertoire.

                                In truth, the scroll saw part involves only the creation of the blank and the cutting of the concentric rings. That's what distinguishes scroll saw segmentation (both...
