I work with others to develop business concpets, and find ways in which to help identify niche markets, as well as integration of technology and marketing concepts for an ever-changing world of business! I work with everything from Initial concept to finished product, and help mold the overall image and "experience" of a startup/young company. I also work with other level companies, though to a much lesser extent.
I love to laugh, humor is everywhere, and helps us make life better!
My contribution to the "Hotwheels" community... hahaha! http://i50.photobucket.com/albums/f333/Rojgiean/MySpace%20Sp ecials/Haha/Gummies/DSC00236_a.jpg
...and here I thought I was doing good just to have a sense of humor... Designing them would be really cool!!!
I know, I`m weird...lol But like I said...I love applying my sense of humor to everyday life... even though I am a little off-beat most of the time!
...sorry, I know that wasn`t so "professional"... but I`m in a fun-loving, goofy mood right now...
I have a friend that runs a business, and he spends about $5,000 per month to get 10,000 cards! He uses a holographic base, with metalic letting, and logoing with a secondary metalic fleck.
I thought he was insane when he got the first set of business cards, and I was right... insanely intelligent! His business has increased over ten times!
Card stock and presentation can <i>definately</i> mean the difference between you blending in, or gaining new customers. Just find what you like, and then see how to make it look as professional as you can within your budget. ...and don`t forget to allow for marketing via print media in your budget!
There are companies that specialize in different products, and usually they are willing to cut you a discount if you "bulk buy". That is one way.
Another is to join a system like SMC... notice I said "like"... I don`t like to promote any single business as the answer, as we all have ifferent goals and expectations for our ventures!
