So, you know how when you’re starting a company, there a million jillion things on your plate and sometimes you are performing aerial leaps between branding and web design and writing copy and crunching COGS and attending to legalities and and and…
You now how that feels, right? Well, I’ve been juggling dozens of balls over the past few months and I recently dropped one. When it came time to design new business cards for Lucky Break Consulting, I dashed off an email to my uber-talented designer Jessika with the various tidbits of information that needed to be included: the street address, phone, fax, email, etc. Jess whipped out a fab design in record time. I scrutinized it thoroughly to ensure all the included details were correct and gave her the thumbs-up to upload the file and place the order with Moo. Over dinner that evening, I showed my husband the design- beaming with pride- and he responded with:
“It’s gorgeous babe…is your name on the back or something?”
Oh, yes. My name. Probably the singular non-optional component of every business card in the history of Ever. Yes, that. In my haste, I realized I hadn’t told Jess to include my name. I assumed she’d just do it and I was so distracted by making sure all those numbers on the phone + address were correct on the proof that it never even occurred to me to check for my name. *cue panic* We had uploaded and approved the file and placed the order and these were some expensive, fancy-pants cards. Swoon-worthy Moo Luxe cards, in fact. I dashed off a frantic email to Jess who suggested I contact Moo and pray for mercy.
