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.”

When Sales Beat Projections, You Know Wilkerson Did Its Job

There are no crystal balls when it comes to sales projections. But when Thomasville, Georgia jeweler Fran Lewis chose Wilkerson to run the retirement/going-out-of-business sale for Lewis Jewelers and More, she was pleasantly surprised to learn that even Wilkerson could one-up its own sales numbers. “Not only did we meet our goal, but we exceeded the goal that Wilkerson had given us by about 134%,” she says. After more than 40 years in the business, Lewis says she decided a few years ago to “move towards retirement.” And she was impressed by Wilkerson’s tenure in the industry. Overall, she’d recommend the company to anyone else who may be thinking it’s time to hang up their loupe. “As a full package, they’ve done a very good job and I’d definitely recommend Wilkerson.”
