Business card

I wanna print me a business card where I appear with something mere impressive than "Io, programmer".

I'm thinking on a series of absolutely trivial characteristics but put them all together and you get something impressive. Like "Io, adventurist, bicyclist, globalist, idealist and monogamist".

There's more stuff to choose from, here: https://www.morewords.com/ends-with/ist/

Last time I looked, "adventurist, bicyclist, globalist, idealist and monogamist" -- none of those were "businesses", or even skills or an identity that a business could use.

If your goal is to hand out cards at interviews, that's the wrong card to hand out.  If your goal is to hand out cards at social occasions, I didn't think people handed out cards at social occasions.

On the other hand, you can probably get a box of cards printed however you want for about $10, so why not go for it?

Unless you sell amway or something there is no utility for business cards.

My professor in Nijmegen, an American with a touch for drama, had new business cards printed by my father when he heard he was a printer, and he ordered double sided cards.

On one side his function of professor of the Fundamental Research on Matter institute, on the other side his function as chairman of the European Physical Society.

He used his Polaroid (this was the 1980's) camera to copy some Chinese characters from a restaurant calender, which he had added to his institute side. The European club had an official logo that he used.

Double sided cards are cool, and allow you to combine different accents.

Allright, dropping the idea. I thought this would be funny but better not make fun of businesses :P

It all started when a colleague bragged about how he'll meet a VIP whom he presented through his title / occupation.

So I told him it's gonna be awkward when they meet and the guy introduces himself like "Chairman of the European Physical Society" and he comes up with "I'm Hubble". Some guys can get away with "I'm Buffet" and if you stare, "Warren Buffet". Guys like us need to add something like "bicyclist, environmentalist, idealist and accordionist" B-)

When I worked for a consultancy firm, my card just mentioned 'IT specialist'.

That was like the shop in my neighbourhood that took on new products all the time, like wine from barrels, or cheese, or nuts: he had just 'specialist' on his bags below his name.

That saved him a lot of printing costs.

I just ordered some from Moo.com

Heavy paper. Colored insert. Elegant type. Minimalist design.

You know what perfect pitch is?

That's when you throw the accordion into the dumpster, and it lands on the banjo.

Whomever it was that introduced the accordion to Mexico and Latin America should have been killed.
