I like being old-fashioned. That’s why I still have business cards made out of paper.
Some people don’t even know anymore how they work. When I hand them a business card, they think that they have to transfer my phone number and e-mail address into their mobile phone right away and hand back the card to me. Today, people probably simply swipe their cell phones to exchange such data.
For my new business cards I chose six of my photos to adorn the backside. I narrowly managed to avoid the temptation of choosing a photo of myself. Instead, I decided on these six landscape shots:
You will find more information about the photos at the following links:
- Ottoman cemetery in Bitola, Macedonia
- lonely man at the beach in Rometta Marea, Sicily
- red boat in a bay on La Maddalena, Sardinia
- forest in Salaspils, Latvia
- the Soviet-Union era house where I lived in Vilnius, Lithuania
- an old house in Trakai, Lithuania
For the ordering process, I was less old-fashioned though. I ordered the cards online. Vistaprint refused to deliver to Romania (despite offering shipping to Jamaica, Mozambique or Mali), so I used MOO. They are more expensive, but they did deliver.
Now I only have to leave the house and meet some people in order to get rid of my cards.
