Trip Down Memory Lane

Kuzak's Closet Business Cards

Over the weekend I was filing my month end paperwork and I found a small stash of my old business cards in one of my files.  I don’t hold on too much and I was actually glad that I could have a look down memory lane.  When I started organizing professionally I worked through word of mouth only, no business cards, no blog, no website.  At that point it was a part-time gig on the side of my job as an operations manager at a K-12 school in Chicago.  I stayed busy enough that it never occurred to me to have a card to give to clients until I started working for a famous Chicago restaurateur.  At the end of one of our sessions she asked me for a business card and I was a little embarrassed that I didn’t have one to give to her.  I went home and put together something simple of Vistaprint.  These were a premade design, I liked the color scheme and the design.  There were my cards from 2007-2009.

When we moved to California in 2009 I decided to turn my part-time business into a full time career.  Chris built me a website, I started blogging, and I changed my phone number to a local number.  With all of the changes I knew I needed to  come up with a new business card design.  I wanted something simple and clean on a really heavy card stock.  Chris went to Papersource with me and we worked with one of their designers to come up with this design. I only used these cards for a short time during 2010.

As my business and my blog grew Chris suggested that I get a logo and I agreed.  I wanted something to print on t-shirts that could also brand me online.  I was on a budget so I decided to use Logotournament to find this design. I put in a minimal bid and I figured if I didn’t see something that I liked I wouldn’t be out much.  I was pleasantly surprised with the logos that were designed for me and after the 7 day tournament I found what I was looking for. I created these business cards on Vistaprint and upgraded the paper to nice heavy card stock.  I used these cards from 2010 until January of 2013.

I loved my old logo but I needed to upgrade my website and my blog.  From 2009 until the end of 2012 Chris had been the primarily been designing my site and writing all of the code behind it.  He did such a great job but he and decided that we wanted to reach out to someone who could take the site to the next level.  I wanted to switch from Blogger to WordPress and give it a more polished look.  I also wanted it to be easier to navigate and I wanted my potential clients to know that I am in the home organization and estate sale business.  We hired Stephanie Sheldon from Hello Parfait.  She instantly suggested that we redesign everything, even the logo.  I was a little hesitant about the change (a lot hesitant) but I’m glad she talked me into it.  I love the new color scheme, all of the stationary that coordinates with my new look, and the website resign.  This is a look at my current business card, I received them at the beginning of this year and I love the weight of them.  I’m looking forward to enjoying my new look for years to come!

I hope you enjoyed my trip down memory lane.  It was fun to look back at how much my business cards have changed in 6 years.  I wonder where the next 6 years will take Kuzak’s Closet?

  6. Throughout the great scheme of things you secure an A with regard to effort and hard work. Where exactly you actually confused me was first on your details. As they say, details make or break the argument.. And that couldn’t be much more accurate right here. Having said that, permit me reveal to you exactly what did deliver the results. The writing is extremely persuasive and this is probably why I am making the effort in order to opine. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. Secondly, despite the fact that I can notice a jumps in reason you come up with, I am not necessarily confident of just how you appear to unite the details which produce the actual final result. For right now I shall yield to your issue but hope in the near future you actually link your dots much better.
