Calling all globetrotters! Are you planning on traveling this summer? If so, remember to take your business cards with you. We’d love to know exactly where your (and our) influence is being spread as you’re gallivanting about across exotic destinations. Have some fun and snap photos of yourself holding your business card in front of Angkor Wat, The Vatican, the Swiss Alps, or wherever it is that you end up. Then post your pics to our Facebook wall and make sure to mention where the photo was taken – you’ll be the envy of us and every partner who visits our Facebook page! Once summer wraps up, we’ll create an album filled with all of the fabulous places 4over printed business cards have been. We want to live vicariously through you while resting assured that your cards are as well-traveled as you are (and as we’d like to be)! Bon Voyage from the 4over team. Have so much fun and may your business cards make waves everywhere from Honolulu to Iceland!
Here’s something to think about next time you’re putting together an email blast, website, or displaying information anywhere across the internet — RESPONSIVE DESIGN. It’s an uber important element in social media and eCommerce now because virtually everyone uses some type of mobile device with Internet access. Often more than one device, for that matter — smart phones, tablets, etc. We found the following article on Pinterest to be very informative. It’s called “10 Basic Tips About Responsive Design,” from the eMarketing specialists over at Splio:
“More than a simple design trend, Responsive Design is a set of modern tools and techniques aiming to rearrange the way information is displayed depending on the device capacities.
HD wide, tiny low res, landscape, portrait…designers can’t rely on one unique layout solution anymore. The key is in response: get information about the device, react, and display an adapted version of the layout.”…CONTINUE READING

Let’s face it, we’re presented with problems every single day. It’s part of the cycle of life. It’s also part of the cycle of business — no one is immune. What we often fail to realize, however, is that problems are actually gifts. If we weren’t faced with problems, there would be nothing challenging us to grow. And growth is, of course, one of the cornerstones to success. So next time you’re faced with a problem in business, look at it as an opportunity for growth. Search for a solution right away AND make sure that when you make a promise to your customer, that it’s a promise you can keep. And don’t focus on the problem itself, focus on fine tuning your problem solving skills — stay always in the solution. Your business and your customers will thank you.
We’ve added several new sizes to our popular Car Magnets category. Car Magnets are printed on heavy duty glossy material and ideally suited for car door signage but can certainly be used on other surfaces as well. Use them as temporary signs at construction sites or any other changing work environments where metal surfaces are present. Drive around town with your own mobile billboard and promote your business, introduce new products & services, etc. Get optimal company exposure everywhere you go! And now with so many sizes to choose from, your customers will have virtually endless possibilities for use!
Here are the sizes that we now offer:
