Your business card can enhance or detract from the impression you make when you meet a potential client. You have an interesting conversation and then you hand them your card. Present a contemporary, professional and quality card. A nice cotton stock, clean typesetting and fine letterpress printing or engraving will always get you the reaction you want: "ooh, nice card!"

I was an art history major in college, so any story that takes place in a museum and discusses art in any way, I'm into it.
The Goldfinch, by Donna Tartt
, is a drizzly story about a boy who visits
The Metropolitan Museum of Art
in NYC with his mother, an art historian of some sort (I don't remember exactly, her occupation). Her life's obsession was with a particular work from one of the
petite oil painting of a goldfinch
This obsession with The Goldfinch painting brings the boy and his mother back to the museum one morning, on a day that 13-year old Theo Decker had been suspended from school. When the two become separated in the museum, tragedy strikes and the two are separated forever. A badly injured stranger, near Theo during the blast, urges him to take The Goldfinch painting, saying that it would be destroyed or lost in the clean up. Stunned, Theo puts the small painting in his backpack and woks his way out of the museum after the stranger dies, and in a daze finds his way home to wait for his mother, but who never makes it out of the museum.
The rest of the book follows this young boy and the priceless work of art--that he has now stolen--through the next ten, or so, years of his life. From living situations and decisions both good and bad, his destiny is intertwined with that painting.
Well written, suspenseful, intriguing. I'll definitely read it again one day.

Think of your Save the Date card as a teaser: give guests enough to get excited and make plans, but no spoilers! This stylish wedding card does just that. The type design and colors of the event to come are represented, but the invitation won't be redundant. You'll recognize the deep blue and lavendar color palette from this card, but maybe the invitation will be on dark blue cardstock with lavender engraving, and fill in the blanks regarding ceremony time, and pre- and post-wedding festivities.
What if you haven't chosen your wedding invitation yet? In that case, it's best to keep it very simple on the save the date so as not to clash with the invitation when you do make your selection. You probably have a good idea of the color scheme you'll be working with, but maybe keep some of the extra pop for the invitation.
The job of the wedding save the date card is to get the word out to your future wedding guests that you're planning something big and that you want them to have advance notice so they can make plans to be there. Whether you have every detail nailed down or not, invitations only go out 6-8 weeks ahead of your event, and in this busy world, that may not be enough notice for some. So send a save the date to get the ball rolling, and then follow up with all the details with the invitation when it's about 2 months out.
