I ordered three more greeting cards from another company. I'll tell you the company name after I get the cards, assuming they arrive and don't look awful. They shipped via the post office (after telling me they only used UPS), but that's okay. The post office is slow but reliable. The main problem I have with them is that their online tracking system is slower than their delivery. Delivery is guaranteed for today, but the tracking data says they haven't picked up the package yet. In the past I generally got my mail up to a day before the tracking site confirmed delivery, which kind of kills the purpose of the whole thing.

Design 1 - simple:

Type 2 - bold and colorful:

Type three - geeky but slightly creepy:

Type four - the card I originally ordered:

Type five - experimental design:

Let me know which one you like apart from #5 which I only plan to employ on special occasions, such as when the chloroform takes effect.

I like the first one (but those dots remind me of bubbles) or the one you originally ordered. The one you originally ordered looks very businesslike and professional.

That eyeball one is just a bit too..."Twilight Zone-ish" for me.

Avitable said...

The first one is a good one.

Tai said...

I vote for the eyeball card. But it should have swords sticking out of it.
And blood. Red, red blood.

I like the first one too but i'm kinda partial to polka dots.
Hate the eyeball one (you'll pick that one - I just know it)
LOVE the last one heh heh....

Kira said...

It depends...have I dropped acid before viewing the cards? If so, I'd go for #2 and #3. Otherwise, I like #1 and #4.

metalmom said...

I like all but #3. Yeah, even #5.(in a sick twisted way, that's the one I'd like to get.)

The second one caught my eye. :)

Leesa said...

I like the forth one. Classic - and mentioning your affinity for Japanese women.

~Deb said...

That's discrimination!!!

Grant, what nationality are you? Just curious.

pq - the red dot makes me think of blood.

avitable - thanks. I agree.

tai - I liked that the best at first, mostly because of the binary numbers, but the eyeball is just a tad creepy.

doug - darnit!

patti - I'm leaning that way too - I wanted bold, but classy is better.

kira - just lick the corner of cards two or three and everything will be groovy.

metalmom - the eyeball would have been better if it pulsed and sent out subliminal commands.

~deb - it's very striking, but in reality it's loud and a little ugly. My first thought upon getting it out of the pack was "What was I thinking?"

leesa - the fourth one looks cheaper in reality than the online image shows. I'll post a little more about it today.

~deb (again) - I'm an American; a real mutt. I'm Irish and German on my mother's side and British and Cherokee on my father's. If it will prevent a lawsuit, I will have sex with you.

It's the best offer I've had in a very long time Grant. :D

I'm kinda close to Asian. Kinda.
