Pre-Designed Business Cards

One of the pre-designed business card options available on the Wiles Side website.

A nice retro bowling theme design, suitable for a number of vintage and retro businesses.

These cards were inspired by the Palm Springs ranch houses from the MCM period.
Hey kids, I hope you had a good weekend. I've been doing  quite a bit of behind the scenes work on the Wiles Side website lately, and most recently I added some pre-designed business card options for those on a tight budget. I've got a handful of cool retro designs to start off with, and there are three different pricing options: $20 for the do-it-yourselfer, $35 comes with 100 printed cards and the $75 option, which comes with 500 hundred printed cards, and both the 100 and 500 card options include free US shipping. I'll be posting more designs as time allows, but for now,  I'm happy to have it all up and running.

New Business Cards, They're Like Clean Underpants for Your Business

New business cards, they’re like clean underpants for your business. Some might consider this a preposterous statement, but I think it’s right on the money. Think about it, it’s been a long, hot day; you’re worn out and weary. Is there anything better than a quick shower? And when you step out of the shower you don’t want to put on the same old musty skivvies you wore all day. No, you want something clean and fresh,  maybe you even had the foresight to put a clean pair of knickers in the freezer, and when you slip them on—Woo-Hoo!— you realize that it is the best you’ve felt all day. Well, my friend, new business cards can give your business that same exhilarating feeling.

The Castle Restaurant

I'm proud to announce that my drawing of The Castle Restaurant was used in an essay by writer, Jocelyn S. Mackie.

 Do any of you PDX locals remember The Castle Restaurant in Gladstone? Way back in the day it was a popular roadhouse along Highway 99E, back when it was still the main drag between Canada and Mexico. Anyway,  I was recently contacted by freelance writer, Jocelyn S. Mackie, and she asked if she could use one of my drawings to help illustrate a piece she was writing on the legendary roadhouse and jazz club. Of course I said yes, and I am very happy to announce that she has recently posted the piece on her blog, Meander No More. Ms. Mackie did a fantastic job on the article, and I’m very proud to have my work included. But, I am still pissed that the building was torn down—and the reasons why.
