If I ever meet you, you can be sure I will ask you for your card and have mine ready to give to you. I don't just mean at art events, I mean anywhere you go. On my daily walks through the country hills I have met artists who became clients because I had a card tucked inside my shoes.
Artists who exchange cards with me show that they are ready to do business. Make it easy for me to contact you and to look at your work by having these items on your cards
- Your personal name
- Your art business name
- Your art business tagline
- Your surface mail address
- Your telephone numbers
- Your web site urls
- Your e-mail address
- An image of your work
You can use both sides of the card or create a miniature note card.
Artists who hand me excuses instead of cards are broadcasting their lack of professionalism. Don't tell me that you just ran out or forgot them or they are too expensive. It shows that you don't care to keep in touch or you want me to do all the work.
It's a simple habit to have cards with you all of the time. Leave them where you have your keys, have them at the entrance to your studio and put them in your car.
P.S. If you need business cards designed and printed at a good price for great quality, contact Robin Sagara at 310-480-6738 Pacific time or Robin@ArtistCareerTraining.com
