Donald BOHICA - For this next challenge we teamed up with Gibson Greeting Cards. You have to design a greeting card for valentines day. You need to decide who you are marketing it to, design the front and inside of the card and pick a price that will sell but still create a profit. My Gibson account rep and her district manager will pick a winner. Deadline is Wednesday at 11:59 pm EST. Good luck everyone.

I'm going to be away the rest of the night due to some prior arrangements my wife didn't tell me about so I'm going to go ahead and post ours



How is everyone doing tonight. I'm armyatc22 and I'm representing team Haterz gonna hate. First off let me say how honored we are to be designing some Valentines Day cards for your company. We know that this time of the year is one of the busiest for your company and we hope that with the product that we have designed it will take a little bit of the pressure off of your design team.

We will be marketing our product towards wives from husbands. Our product isn't just 1 card, or 2, or even 3. We are presenting to you the Valentine Quad Pack. These packs of 4 different cards come in different sizes, shapes, and sayings. You can pick from humorous ones, more serious ones, or even a combination of both. We have also added these on your website where the husbands and go and pick and choose the 4 cards they want or design some new ones if they choose for a small extra price.

Every wife is expecting that one card with flowers and some chocolate and possibly a nice gift, imagine the look on their faces when they get different cards throughout the day. But guess what, that's not even the best part, with using recycled former cards as the stock we are able to sell these packs at the same price as your competitors are selling just 1 card. With this small price tag and more options to choose from the estimated profits from this product should outshine any previous product in the past.

Enough of the talking lets take a look at a sample pack:

Card 1 Front: One of the humor style cards that could be available to choose from



Card 1 Inside:




Card 2 Front: This card shows off one of the more serious styles that we came up with.



Card 2 Inside:



Card 3 Front: Here is another card that would fall under the humor section.



Card 3 Inside:



Card 4: This is a Chalkboard style card that allows you to write whatever you want on the card. It is also in the shape of a heart. This card is more of a write something and place somewhere type of card rather then putting it into an envelope, therefore this card will not have an inside portion and only an outside portion



So in summary we have created a pack of 4 cards that will sell for the same price as 1 high quality card from your competition and should see an huge profit margin from using the recycled cards.

Our team thanks you for taking the time to hear our presentation and we hope that our product can help your company out for the foreseeable future.

Hello all, Truemountaineer here. I know I am not the leader but I figured I would pitch our idea, since our leader has not done anything lately. So needless to say after sending pm's trying to schedule a time we can all chat, I decide (with the help of some other members, but especially ClarkandLewis) We came up with some cards on short notice. We present you with our top 3 designs

1. For the lovable nerdy or crafty couple.
Front:


Back:



2) For the husband who is always the comedian!
Front:


Back:


3) The romantic card
Front:


Back





We have set a price of these at 1.99 that way, the shopper can easily go out and spend the money he saved (not buying a giant expensive card) and get her something nice like a diamond!!!!

On behalf of our team, we would like to thank you for the opportunity to pitch some valentine ideas. I hope we can maybe work together in the future!

Donald, I do have to say True really took the reigns on this one. Both teams have great presentations but I felt the need to give True a much, much deserved shout one on this one. I was able to contribute a little but True is undoubtably Boomo's MVP this week.

Agreed. Though some of the blame lies on everyone (even TM) for our struggles, True rose to the occasion this week. I think everyone did a good job, and I like what we have. There were some strong and weak links, some people outperformed others, but this has to be expected with a team project. I look forward to the result, I think both teams have good ideas.

I showed my wife the opposition's submissions, and she said she would poison me, cut my cajones off, and then divorce me if she received any one of those supposed Valentine's Day cards.

I am usually not a rah! rah! rah! type of person, but I have to say that he did a fantastic job on a fairly tough task.

I think weve all have ourselves to blame, as Gojays said. That being said, I would also like to volunteer to be fired but its up to someone else to make that choice

True, IMO, you're the safest one in the competition win or lose.

Idk, not getting my hopes up, I think any of us (if we lose) should go into the room.
