Never limit yourself to just Business Cards, be creative and make some cards that can brighten someones day.
The card on the left reads:
I would just like to inform you that I find
you to be very attractive.
And have a nice day
Something so simple can put a smile on someones face. I do suggest these cards should be given out by single people and not to be used to pick up on people, but simply to make more of us smile.

Starbucks needs no introduction but just in case: Founded in 1971 in Seattle, Starbucks is the world’s leading coffee retailer with more than 16,000 stores in 50 countries (this despite numerous closings in the last year or so). Starbucks also manages Tazo tea, Ethos water, and Seattle’s Best Coffee. And, part of the reason why we are here today, Starbucks sells more than coffee and its stores offer more than coffee (Wiiii-Fiiii says I in an Oprah wail). Yesterday, Starbucks announced that beginning in March, to coincide with their 40th anniversary, their brand would be making a bold visual evolution. Namely (pun intended) dropping its name from the logo. The new identity has been developed in-house — Starbucks has one of the strongest internal teams in a big corporation — in partnership with Lippincott.
This is obviously a big deal. Not just because of the change itself but because of what it represents logistically: all those 16,000 stores and all those hundreds of products need to be updated with the new look, aka lots of money spent. The change being relatively subtle can make some people really angry about the cost of implementing it. Store signs notwithstanding, the changes will be phased in over the year and will likely fall in the cycle of production as new packaging and promotions are needed.
Another big complaint is that, OMG, the Starbucks name is not there anymore. Chill people. The name will appear somewhere in the vicinity of the new siren-based logo. It won’t be directly around it, but you can rest assured that if you are walking on the street or browsing an aisle in the grocery store you will see “STARBUCKS” spelled out somewhere. Nike does it. Apple does it. Target does it. It’s not that hard to create a link between an icon and a name. Tangential to the name being dropped is the concern that the siren is not a recognizable enough icon to stand on its own. Please. It is. It just happens to have been dwarfed by the relatively enormous Futura name around it all these years. I would bet my daily morning Starbucks coffee (brewed at home) that the siren will not have any problem establishing itself as a Nike swoosh or Apple apple within one or two years. With the amount of bandwidth that Starbucks occupies in the visual landscape, no one will confuse the siren as it being the icon for a hair salon, tiara manufacturer, or mermaid depot.
Now to the actual result: This is a fantastic, confident evolution. If you look at the image of the coffee cups above you realize how clunky the old logo was and just how extraneous its many elements were. It went from four circles/rings to one. It went from two colors to one. It went from three stars to one. Perfect simplification without losing the essence of the brand. That new cup design alone elevates the identity to an actual lifestyle brand more than a retail brand. It has a newfound sophistication that would have been impossible to achieve before.
Come March it will be interesting to see how the identity system evolves. As hard as I tried this time around to get some additional images no one budged. But I sense there is some interesting executions waiting to be implemented.
Lastly: Please, for those comparing this to Gap (looking at you Reuters, Daily News, et al), don’t. It’s not even close and hopefully the media and the consumer can stop asking for every single redesign to pull a Gap and return to whatever was before or next thing you know we will be driving horse buggies again and afraid of any kind of evolution.

We are sorry to break the bad news that our shipping rate mess has been corrected. A big thank you to Brant at FedEx for all the help and support, we've been on this for a while.
From here on out all shipping rates are standard FedEx list rates, however the additional U.S. Home Delivery charges will not be charged to the customer. Instead we will pick up the tab for that and all fuel charges to keep your shipping rates reasonable.
The ones most affected will be the international orders. I'm sure most of you thought $10 shipping from the U.S. to Thailand was a bargain, well it was for you because we ate the bill. No worries, everything has now been corrected. If you are an international customer email us at Info@ambermediasolutions.com to work out a deal and inquire about how you could get 1/2 off or free shipping!
