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.”

Celebrate Your Retirement with Wilkerson

For nearly three decades, Suzanne and Tom Arnold ran a successful business at Facets Fine Jewelry in Arlington, Va. But the time came when the Arnolds wanted to do some of the things you put off while you’ve got a business to run. “We decided it was time to retire,” says Suzanne, who claims the couple knew how to open a store, how to run a store but “didn’t know how to close a store.” So, they hired Wilkerson to do it for them. When she called, Suzanne says Wilkerson offered every option for the sale she could have hoped for. Better still, “the sale exceeded our financial goals like crazy,” she says. And customers came, not only to take advantage of the going-out-of-business buys and mark-downs, but to wish a bon voyage to the beloved proprietors of a neighborhood institution. “People were celebrating our retirement, and that was so special,” says says.
