Default New Business Cards!!!

So what do you think?

Photobucket


Basically, when you tilt the card it's supposed to be reflective. It's called, "foil".



This is my old business card;

Breeze Business Card

That is a nice design. I noticed though that you had some french content on the old card. Is that something that you may do again? Or do you feel like it is not necessary?

I was actually thinking about you earlier and thinking that I had not heard much from you in a while. you ok brother? lol

I'm glad you like the card! It was a $100.00 chance I took to get them made LOL.

Vista print caught me with a deal... and another deal... just took my money, so they better turn out good lol.


I've been off the site for a little while. Basically trying to suck up to people daily to get them as customers for spring.

I fired a customer in July, but she hired me for a fall cleanup so we're on good terms after I realized it wouldn't hurt to take her back.

I spent a lot of time on her property doing the best fall cleanup ever, especially after helping out that other company who would rather hide leaves then to pick em' up.

Other than work, I've been back to my usual ways, brainstorming and printing un-needed papers, pretending to be busy... lol

....................

I just want winter to start & END so I can get back to grass. It's too slow right now, I have a huge caveman beard going on, haven't changed my clothes in a few days too.

I'm trying to think if I should do snow removal at all this winter (helping other companies because I can't afford to do my own snow removal) or if I should find a job other than labor.

I'm so used to labor that maybe I should take my head out of it for a bit.

OH and as for the french content on my old card... I feel as if it took up way too much room & made the card look sloppy.

If I stick to 1 language, I have room to write all my services.

I'd probably do French & English for a brochure or something, but never again for cards.

I will probably never get brochures though, the price to make those is just insane. lol

I'll be happy with 1000 new & shiny business cards

I like them! Where did you come up with the new logo with the B in the circle? That's pretty sweet!

Well in my dreams I always imagine Breeze becoming this big all powerful company. Mass producing lawn mowing machines, with a full staff of henchman who guard my underground facility.

It's nothing evil... it's just a cool thought. Who wouldn't want that?!

I mean, Terminator has "Cyberdyne Systems"

half-life (P.C Game) has "Black Mesa" <- Awesome WATCH THIS to understand;
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7J80KD4BG7M

So all in all, I wanted something simple, a B with a circle around it would look cool on a big concrete building front, right before you walk into the building and meet my several receptionist... (still dreaming)

They are sharp, personally I would change the company motto "Competition Line" I don't think that will matter to a prospect, they already know that, need something catchy, I came up with "If you have the job, we have the tools" The grass may be greener on the other side but it still has to be mowed" something that catches the clients attention.

Do you have your own website and if so, why not have your company as your email, for example I am ALondon(at)Oakridgeyardcare.ca you want your clients to know you are real and for real. Hotmail, Gmail, Live and other have a place but if a company has to use them for company business, if you go after the upper middle class or upper class, they notice this and I know this from direct customer feedback.

If we listen to our clients very close and adapt various areas because we hear something quite often and then use that as a marketing tool, it will work in my experience, it's the #1 reason we grew so fast in year one.

Now they have set my goals for next year, I have to get certified to install septic systems, I had to get the gear to be able to dig foundations, I am taking part of the excavation side directly after the bigger guys, I have the gear and operators in place, have let developer clients know I am now ready (clients from my banking and house building days), I let fence companies know we now have Hydraulic augers on the mini excavators, if we had the right winter (no snow) I have enough work to keep us going in excavation and tree cutting/chipping until June for at least 6 guys.

I did the work to change keywords around to overtake all the bigger tree chipping companies, I am now ranked #1 for that service in google.

I GOT MY CARDS JUST NOW!!! 5:00PM

THAT... WAS... FAST!!!

They look better than I thought.

I am one step closer to owning my underground facility.

No but seriously, there is NO way I can show you how good these cards are.

I am impressed.

This is a card James Bond would carry. I'm very pleased.

I do have a question for you. Where on your door will the logo be placed?
