The importance of easy info

Yesterday something very nice happened which brought to my mind the importance of having easily available information. I was stopping by the little candy shop next to the office on my way to work in the morning, (yes candy for breakfast, that is what being an adult is all about, being allowed to decide yourself what is good for you to eat. Sometimes that is ice cream for dinner or candy for breakfast. In my defence, it was just a little candy and I had been eating my porridge before it. So it was more like an early mid morning snack. But I digress).

Anyway, I was standing in the little shop and this girl who was in there as well said to me - I like your necklace, where did you get it? So I got to proudly answer, I made myself. So she asked if I made a lot of jewellery and if I had a card. Which I of course didn't. I have been thinking for a while to sort out some kind of business cards, but I haven't' got around to it.

This event pointed out to me how important it is to have your shop info easily available. Well mainly because I had to dig through my entire bag to find a piece of paper and a pen to write my webadress on which meant I dropped my wallet on the floor and it subsequently distributed all my cash and cards all over the shop floor. So my next goal is to get some business cards sorted.

I think I'm going to go with moo cards, they have little mini cards and you can upload your photographs and design your own card. I think that is what I will be doing tonight when Mr T is studying. First I was planning to make cards myself, but then with Moo cards you can print on both sides of the card, so I could have a big photo on the front and all the contact details at the back. I think it would look really nice and professional.


  1. It's a great idea, and very professional. Hi, I'm Maria the jewellery queen, here's my card, se'ya:)

  2. Låter klockrent Maria, nu får du bli bussiness både i ditt arbete och i din hobby.
