Earlier this week I started out thinking about and playing with business card designs for the commissioned sewing and quilting that I do. To this point I've done work based on word of mouth only with and had nothing that I could give out to people who were interested in my services for the future....hence thinking about business cards.
For the designs used the name of my blog as the name of my business, and what I came up with are shown to the left. Any ideas on them or what you like to see in a business card?
But after talking the head of my company (I've known her for 9 yrs or so), and listening to what she had to say, I've got some things to think about. Things like what kind of an image do I want it to have, what kind of connotations do I want the business name to have when people see it for the first time (things like would "The Quilted Snail" tell people that I don't get work done fast because snails are slow moving), what kind of work / business do I want the business to encompass (the commissioned work, designing and selling patterns and so on....), and other questions.
At the moment I'm thinking I might use a company name like "Designs by Moira" as my company name. How would that sound to you?
1. 2 months has passed at work and I'm still enjoying the work.
2. Time to sew is on the horizon for the weekend.
