Title: My bitcoin business card for the conference
Post by: dacoinminster on May 10, 2013, 05:35:39 PM
The bitcoin conference is going to be a stellar place to network with other people involved in exciting projects who might be future colleagues. At the last minute, I decided I couldn't live without a business card to hand out. Here is what I ended up with using Zazzle (starting from this design: http://www.zazzle.com/formal_elegant_computer_programmer_designer_business_card-240148101875111713):

I selected 1-day shipping just to be sure I get it in time. What do you guys think?

Update: Zazzle cancelled my order. They noticed that I hadn't changed the back at all from the default. Oops! I submitted the order a second time, and this time the back of the card has a QR code for my email address with my printed email address below. Awesome - I didn't even know I was getting a 2-sided card!

Here's the new back:

"Computer Software Programmer Developer" sounds a little silly

Yeah, obviously I changed that as shown above

As a card for conferences it's pretty sweet.  Clear and complete, with just a little complexity to start conversations.

Although for day-to-day my preference is minimalistic - mine just has my name at the upper left, and "At Reasonable Prices" at the lower right.  Anything else is contextual and I write it in.

My prices are never reasonable, so I'd just have to have my name only :)

'Reasonable' is owned by whoever has the best cards...

That's pretty cool, wondering how people would react if we would show up ripped, shredded and with two blondes wearing our outfits, it's pretty cool meeting dorks but I'm afraid same thing will happen as with Bitcoin Conference 2011

I guess the economy went through so much since then....

Heh. Nice photoshop there :)

I didn't go to the 2011 bitcoin conference, and after the whole Bruce Wagner melt-down, I'm glad I didn't.

Update on the business cards: The tracking number says they were left at my front door, but I never got the package. I suspect UPS probably left them at the wrong house. I doubt Zazzle can get me replacements by tomorrow, but we'll see what they do.

No cards, no potato. I sad. :(

I like the design! Simple and to the point :)

I would leave the back almost empty though. When I talk with somebody in a conference, I like to write on the back of the card the topic we talked about, so they remember better.

Subject: Re: Your Zazzle Order # 131-03351155-7580796 - Order Shipped [Incident: 130515-000873]
To: Zazzle Customer Support

Aaaaand my wife just told me she found the first package . . . . apparently the UPS guy decided to HIDE the package instead of just leaving it by the door. It was cleverly concealed in a bush. We would never have found it except my wife was trimming that bush back.

You might want to update your support staff and have them let customers know that if a UPS package is not received, the driver may have gone to unexpected lengths to conceal the package from nosy neighbors.

You might also want to ask your friends at UPS to enter "Concealed near front door" rather than "Left at front door" in their tracking computers.
So, no need to ship the replacement cards. Thanks for your prompt attention to this matter.

If you're at the conference, don't be surprised if I try to give you one! :) :) :)

What we talked about will almost certainly be summed up by the little quote on the front about MasterCoin :)
