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

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
