Default Home Printed Personal Cards

We were not sure just where to place this suggestion but here goes. Many of us who now know a little something of the computer print our own personal information cards. Because, when we wish to continue contact with someone after the cruise, we present them with our card containing our e-mail address, phone number, etc.

After arriving home, as with many of us, we place these cards somewhere and do not retrieve them until some time later. However, when one finally looks at the card and reads (for example) Mark & Mindie Smith, we know the name rings a bell but, were they the Bridge players or the Trivia team players?

What we have done is print a photograph of the two of us above our pertinent information so that when the card is retrieved they can put faces with the names. We have been told that it is a good idea and so here pass it on.

I personally prefer Vistaprint for personal cards to hand out. You get 250 for just the shipping of $6.95(if you get the free ones......they just put a little ad on the back), and you can't even buy the paper to print out that many for so little. It takes about 3 weeks to get them and I have ordered from them before so they have good work.

Love those people. Parrot Pop also has special t-shirts made for each cruise through Vista Print..with our names, the name of the ship and the ports and dates..

We get ours from Vista Print. We live in a large retirement community & everyone has them. VP will also let you upload a picture for a fee.
I even ordered magnetic signs for my DH to put on his truck for his business.
