Last week I finally wrote up the backsides for the Vista Postcards I had printed for my taxi/marketing embarkment. I have to say, other than the colour not quite matching what I thought it would (which is no surprise given monitor settings and unknown printers printing from elsewhere) I am very happy with how the first batch looks. I've yet to receive the clock postcards, but hey I chose the slowest shipping (21 days) and ended up getting batch #1 in three days.
My biggest challenge now is distributing them to the taxi fares in ways that don't make me repeat myself over and over. I have a very low tolerance for monotony. If I have to hear myself say the same thing over and over for too long I will go to a seamstress and have a zipper sewn over my mouth. I've put the cards on the console on the floor between myself and any front seat passenger. I mention I am an artist, they say what kind and I try to casually pluck a card and pass it to them (feels a little wrong and calculated). There aren't places elsewhere to have them just innocently sitting around and I'm wondering if it is gauche to do this? I only ordered 150 cards, they aren't something I'm going to just give out like bank suckers. Don't want them tossed without a thought. Just wondering if anyone has a brilliant idea for how to further sell myself while driving people about. There is nothing worse than feigned interest. I sometimes get neurotic and tell people they don't have to keep the card, I'm just showing them what I do. If anything I'm learning something about something even if I don't like it.
