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.

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.”

*Warning for the easily offended: a few cards in the collection feature pretty raw language.

Wilkerson Testimonials

Wilkerson Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
