New Christmas ART...

I have a knack for art especially hand drawn art of the comic type, if that makes any sense...
Anyway for this Christmas season I am planning to put my little bit of artistic talent to work and hope it helps me propel my business of making and selling cards...

So Here are my 2 newest drawings for you to see before they enter my web store:

1. This is Miss Nude Christmas Claus...

2. For the children or shall I simply say for the family fun visitors:

Hey let me know what you think...

Business Card Etiquette

This new post is something I found in 'Business Week SmallBIZ' June/July 2008 issue
by Amy S. Choi that I wanted to share with everyone...

In the US, how you desing and present your business cards is an idiosyncratic, casual affair. But overseas, a simple exchange of cards can become an etiquette disaster, warns Neil Payne, founder of Kwintessential, a cross-cultural communications consultant in London. Here's how to avoid a blunder. -Amy S. Choi

Your card must indicate status, although the actual exchange of cards will be casual.
Your card should clearly state the year your company was founded and your title.
"Eastern Europeans are very into hierarchy", says Payne.
Using lucky colors such as red and gold plays nicely.
In a show of deference, give and receive cards with both hands and a slight bow.
Take time to comment on the card, and don't write on it

or shove it into a pocket-put it carefully into a card case.
Education is important in India, so highlight your alma mater (if applicable)
and any education honors earned. After shaking hands, use your right hand to exchange cards.
