eBay Seller Business Cards

Get more feedback after your auctions and return customers by including your contact information when shipping eBay items. Here are some great sets of designs for custom eBay Business Cards. If you are a high volumn power seller who runs their own store and sells items that may have a lot of return customers and repeat business then you want to make sure they know how to find you again.

Offer a coupon code or discount for your auctions:

People don't bother to bookmark or save their auction history and if it's past the 60 or 90 days that eBay shows on their reports a person may not be able to remember who they purchased something from before. If you include a business card, it's likey they may save that and use it for future purchases. Plus if you have a website where you sell good direct and offer a slight discount, this is a way to cross promote that as well.

Vertical fashion or clothing shop:

Offer a reward program for repurchasing:

Vintage or antique store:

Bokeh Photography Business Cards

I love taking out of focus, blurry light pictures. These work best with a wide apenture like 1.4 1.8 or 2.0 and you have to use manual focus to keep your image out of focus (as far as the camera is concerned).

Here are some pretty business cards I've designed using one of my pictures:

I don't often make verticle style cards, but I wanted these to look modern.

Are you trying to decide whether to hire a professional party planner or do it yourself? Think about how much is involved in planning a successful party, for large events with more than 20 people you should get outside help to plan. 

A party planner will pull together party ideas and knows where to get the best prices and may also have ideas for things that you have never even thought it. It will take your party to the next level. Other than determining the budget and paying for the event, you can find an event planner who will handle everything for you and you won't need to lift a finger. Then you can actually arrive to your own party and enjoy it and not stress over the planning of the event.

Plumber Business Cards

I recently had a journeyman plumber in the house to save my toilets. Some of the parts had rusted on the inside of the tank and he replaced them. He left a pretty simple black and white business card with his invoice, so I wanted to feature some options that plumbers could use for their businesses: I love the retro style:
