Namecards You Can’t Help But Remember

Heading off to the printer soon for new namecards?

Hold off until you look at this inspirational gallery of business cards, courtesy of Buzzfeed. And after you look at them, take a walk for an hour or two and challenge yourself to come up with something that would fit into this collection.

Check out the gallery on Buzzfeed

The highlight (or lowlight, depending on how you look at it)? Probably would be the “tear off” cards for the professional circumciser*.

After perusing the gallery, here are a few wild business card ideas we had that could work for jewelers:

  • Card with a ring-sizer on it. (Maybe two pieces with some sort of sliding mechanism that pinches the finger and has measurements on it.)
  • Card with a clear insert that is made of magnifying film. Magnifying factor could be 2x, 3x or 4x. Next to the insert are instructions that say “Place your ring finger under the card”. Main message on the card is: “Upgrade your ring to one that’s THIS big!”
  • Card with a classic painting of Cupid, flying around the clouds with a bow and arrow. Replace Cupid’s cherubic face with your non-cherubic one. Pure comedy. Have a banner on the name card that says: “Your Name / God of Love” or “Your Name / Bringing Love to the World”. (Note: this concept is best executed by a professional artist. Doing it on the cheap will just look tacky.)
  • Card in the shape of a dog biscuit (similar to the one in Buzzfeed’s feature). Message: “Wife just serve you one of these for dinner? Let me help you out of the doghouse.”

Wilkerson Testimonials | Zadok Master Jewelers

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
