I could write about how tonight is the beginning of the Redskins football season, or possibly reminisce about the Hokies resounding victory this weekend in Chapel Hill. But the readers of this blog generally give a resounding “Yawn” whenever I talk sports (there are a few noted exceptions – Hi Carrie!).

But in the effort to occasionally post something to my blog, I’ve decided to post about Kate’s business, KC Quilts. She’s enlisted me to provide Web and graphic design expertise (or a an imitation thereof) for her business venture. I leave the quilt making to her.

I’ve done a couple different items for her so far. The blog, these fabric labels, and a design for a business cards were the first three items on the docket. Next up is the rest of the Web site. Today, we got her business cards in the mail from 48hourprint.com. They came out really nice, and I would definitely recommend 48 hour printing. The only complaint I have is that the coating they use stinks. No, seriously. It actually stinks. I think the business cards need to air out a bit before they are put in a holder for Kate to carry around with her. Nobody wants to be handed a stinky business card.

Splish, Splash, B&W

    Very cute business cards! Maybe store them with some potpourri first. Don’t know how to remove stink.
    Oh, and I haven’t been feeling well so I accidentally fell asleep during the game last night. I woke up just before the missed field goal. Darnit!!!

    Wow… very cool business cards. Actually, the potpourri idea isn’t a bad idea. People really do take notice about scented business cards.

    Back when I was going to tech shows for DynCorp, I accidentally sprayed a few of my business cards when I was spraying myself to get ready. My cards smelled like Ralph Lauren Polo Blue. Oddly enough, I was complimented on the cards by men and women alike when they noticed they were scented.

    Potpourri scented cards for KCquilts might be a good combination! 🙂 And great cards! 😀
