Didn't really know where to put this, so I hope this is the appropriate category! <3

I've been looking for ways to try and advertise my photography, and came up with this!
I had some extra clothespins lying around from a previous project, so I decided to hot glue my business cards to them, then pin them onto a strip so that people could do the whole "take one" thing.  :3

Before I glued and attached everything though, I "laminated" everything with clear packaging tape, which is something I do a lot--because it works so well!  Basically, it's just clear packaging tape on both sides of the business card (and the thing the cards are attached to, for extra durability), and I make sure to leave a tiny border around everything, that way it's truly water/weatherproof (for if I wanted to hang this display outside....I think I'm gonna put it up on the bulletin board of my local grocery store or community center though).

It was super simple--only took me about 10 minutes--and I think it's creative enough for people to remember it  Smiley

(and considering the fact that this whole post is basically about advertising my photography, please don't think that these pictures are the quality that I normally shoot in--these were taken with my cell phone.  I was just too lazy to take them with a REAL camera and upload them that way...cell phone is faster.  XD)



"Action shot" (aka, me holding it up to show what it would look like hanging, lol):

Let me know what you think!  Wink

***EDIT:  Oh!! And the thing at the bottom says "*Free clothespin with business card!*" lol***

I really like the idea!
Something bothers me a little, though. The huge letters that say please and then an exclamation mark on the end... It kinda feels like someone is screaming at you:)
