I'm not sure a bad person can write a good book. If art doesn't make us better, then what on earth is it for?

Reading is Fundamental!

I almost made a $300 error today. I authorized the printing of my small cards and this morning I went to order the envelopes and discovered that I had misread the size of the envelopes. So I stopped the presses (whew!) and avoided paying for product I couldn't sell.

I came home and found that I could obtain 4" x 4" cards, and though they looked good, it felt wrong to me. I'm pretty smitten with the idea of selling a dozen little cards for $11.88. So I scoured the web and found a site that offers little envelopes in odd sizes. This size is very close to the one I first thought I had. I've re-created the cards to the size of 2" x 3". This is business card size, but a little taller.

Order submitted, and once I see the proofs, I'll order the envelopes. (UPDATE: I've replaced the pictures below with snapshots of the proofs, and I added one more card: the sunflower.)

Mercy... I'm glad it worked out as it did, although I think I've driven my poor printer nuts.

Oh, and in a bit of good news... at work, it looks as if I'll be working on a marketing project, and frankly, I couldn't be happier about it. I get to listen, react, write, invite, engage, promote, and educate. Right up my alley. Life is great!

Glad they found a niche for you at work that puts your talents to good use! And the cards are amazing! You cropped the pictures amazingly well. Shows the focus of their larger counterparts.
And glad you caught your mistake in time!!
Are you going to sell giftbags with your cards too?

I would really like to see you make your cards in 2x3 size. really small card that you can stick in a pocket, lunchbox or wallet. The use to sell these in groups of 8-12 and i really enjoyed them but now I can't find them. My friend will stick inspirational notes on her cards and put them in her daughter's lunch box. Simple sayings - like "have a super day" "Smile" "I believe in you" "I love you"....What do you think about that Mr. Rogers?
