DIY Limoncello Recipe that will Knock Your Socks Off

Limoncello Made Easy…

Posted By: Matt Hamilton

The hot weather is coming and I’ve got the perfect prescription for you to cool off at your BBQ, pool party or swanky event.  Let’s say it together [ limənˈCHelō ] it rolls right of the tongue doesn’t it?  It kind of makes me feel like an old Italian man when I say it but when I drink it I feel like a young stallion.

Recently our friend Joyce from GoodMotherDiet.com created a blog post featuring a recipe to make the best Limoncello hands down.   Below are some pictures she took of her refreshing creation that features our 2.5 inch round labels on cork top bottles.

Joyce suggests putting your Limoncello in the freezer before drinking it.   We suggest you use a waterproof label material so your ink won’t bleed off the labels when the bottles form condensation.   Get the full recipe and more great tips by reading her full blog post here.

The Secret Recipe To A Unique Business Card

Recipe For Business Card Success

Posted By: Matt Hamilton

How many times have you received a business card and tossed it in the trash?  Most people act like they are going to keep them to be friendly and when you aren’t looking, in the dumpster it goes.   Let’s face the facts; people don’t want lug around business cards unless they have some sort of value.  I personally use them as a ninja throwing star or I clean my fingernails with them (is that weird?).  The point I’m trying to make is business cards generally have very little to no value.

How can you make your business card have some sort of worth that will keep putting your name in front of the person you gave it to?  Melissa Bahen also known as “LuLu” from LuLuTheBaker.com has the secret recipe that will keep your contacts coming back for more!

Lulu’s lineage is filled with fantastic cooks so she decided to make a blog where she could share and preserve her family recipes.   Every year LuLu attends a convention for bloggers named Alt Summit in Salt Lake City.   Each year she comes up with a new business card to wow potential partners and fellow bloggers.   In years past LuLu used card stock sheets to print her information, then punched a hole in the card stock and tied it to a paint dipped spoon.

This past year she had another stroke of genius with Sea Salt Business Cards.

Lulu says “People loved them, which was fantastic, and I realized that I wanted this year’s cards to be equally creative and well-received. I originally had vague ideas of handing out spices in tiny packages, and after many, many, many revisions, endless materials research, and lots of back and forth, I ended up with these little cork-topped glass vials filled with sea salt, with my name and info on the self-printed label. I’m so pleased with how they turned out, and they were just as fun to hand out as I had hoped!”

Supplies You Need To Make Your Own Sea Salt Business Cards:

4-dram glass vials with cork stopper from SKS Bottles & Packaging
Sonoma Coarse Sea Salt from SaltWorks
Printable brown kraft labels from Online Labels

Now that you have some inspiration and the secret recipe to make a unique business card, it’s time to make your own.   OnlineLabels.com gives you access to Maestro Label Designer. This label design software is easy to use and has 100% free phone tech support from start to print.  Don’t throw away money on cards that end up in the trash.  Change the perception of potential clients and partners with an innovative design that makes a lasting impression.

Nothing Says Thanks Like A Personalized Card

Posted By: Matt Hamilton

The goal of her blog is to help people get jobs and improve their networking abilities.  Michele says “A hand written thank you can leave a notable lasting impression that can connect you to the career shift that you are seeking.” Making your own thank you cards is super easy if you have an inkjet or laser printer.
