What A Business Card Says

Perhaps you have just opened your first website? Maybe you own your own business? You could even just want to find a good study partner in school? All of those reasons and more are great ways to use a business card to help aid in those pursuits. A business card can speak for you in many situations. In the digital age in which we live you may think that a business card is unnecessary, but it is quite the opposite. While it is true that some people will ignore your card and possibly even throw it away, you will find that the people who have any remote interest in you and what you are doing would love to have a business card from you. It is a formal way to make sure that a certain person or place has your contact information. It’s just as easy to misplace an email with your contact information as it is to lose a small card containing your details. In fact I think that business cards, if you choose a good and proper design for yours, can prove to be much more useful than an email or phone call.

The main things to remember when choosing a design for your business cards are that it needs to represent you or the business you are trying to promote clearly. When people see the card they need to be able to clearly know what you or your business is about. If you have a design firm you don’t want to choose a design for your card that has dogs and cats on it. Hopefully if you own a design firm you would already know that though. Another important thing is to not overdo the design. Add only the vital information and a simple design to the card for the most effective outcome. Lastly, keep in mind that the whole point in the card is to promote something or be a useful form of contact information for someone to get in touch with you. Don’t give them to just anyone, give them to the people that count, make the cards a special thing and not an overstocked commodity. A business card has been the most effective accessory to a business for years, and that is not going to change anytime soon.

SMMile Photography

Stephanie Michelle Muncy, started her own photography business “SMMile Photography” just earlier this year, and all ready is having success. Muncy runs and operates SMMile Photography by herself, without assistance for the most part. She does at times have an assistant at photo shoots however.

Muncy stated that she offers her clients multiple options, “Packages vary. I usually make a flash drive of all images and give a release form for a set price but other packages vary. My prints range from 1$-10$.”

It was Muncy’s love of photography that led to her starting SMMile Photography,“It started out just being a stamp I put on my photos so people couldn’t steal them and slowly grew into more. People started asking me to take pictures for them. So then it became my name. Then as I got more and more jobs, I turned it into my logo.”

When asked about who some of her clients have been thus far, Muncy replied, “War Torn Angel, a local band, will always be one of my favorite clients, they are some very talented musicians and i love traveling with them to shows. They were one of the first to ever hire me. I love them to death and thank them for supporting me and helping me get to where I am now. Also I’ve had many seniors in high school, along with couples and children from the area. It started out with friends and family then progressed much further.”

Within the next five years, Muncy hopes that SMMile Photography will grow, and that she will possibly have a studio. She takes great pride in the quality and affordability of her photography. She feels as though everyone should be able to capture a special moment in time, and she loves being the person responsible for helping them preserve that moment. Muncy said, “I am very blessed to be doing what I love. If you need pictures just look me up on Facebook.” You can do so by checking out the SMMile Photography Facebook page!
