Getting to check out the Quips+Queries set by Russell+Hazel, it is a set of 100 cards in an acrylic box for jotting notes, numbers, your important brain blurbs, and whatever else just has to be written down RIGHT NOW!
Now if I would take the cards out of the acrylic holder and toss them away (which I wouldn’t of course!) I would be willing to say that this is a fantastic desk accessory. The acrylic box is thick and clear (1/4 inch thick walls) and match many of the other great Russell+Hazel desk accessories available. Once you’ve run out of the Quips+Queries cards, the box makes an excellent catch-all for business cards, paper clips or other desk necessities. Or you can simply order refills of your Quips+Queries cards.
Now the set comes with your choice of cards, the one I happen to be looking at is the Luck set, which is lined in a gold tone and each card features an embossed “Lucky” symbol. (Clover, Penny, Horseshoe, Slot 7′s, or wishing bone) Then you have the other sets to choose from:
- Pink: French Sayings
vis-à-vis (Face To Face)
c’est la vie (Such is life)
tête-à-tête (Between You & Me, If I’m translating right!)
joie de vivre (The Joy of Living)
- Another Gold set featuring card suits
- Black: Magic 8 Ball Sayings
It is Decidedly So
Without a Doubt
Outlook Not So Good
My Sources Say No
Concentrate & Ask Again
The individual cards are made of heavy 130lb cardstock and give you plenty of room to jot. In an office setting, they offer a fantastic way to jot notes to colleagues, words of praise, or as was suggested by one on our team: a very unique and personalized contact card opportunity. Rather then handing a perspective client a hammered out, mass produced business card that provides generic information readily available, why not take a beautiful card like this with a little meaning behind it, take a moment to hand-write your name and contact details, and perhaps a little note that includes why the client might want to call you?
