Before Blogs, Brews and Belly Laughs I, I contacted ZINK Imaging about possibly getting some ZINK paper. What I got was two Polaroid PoGos and a ton of ZINK paper. ZINK means Zero Ink and this paper is marvelous stuff. For one thing it slightly smaller than a business card and it has a sticky backing. What I did at BBBL was take photos with people using my XShot and a custom timer on my Canon SD800is. Then I would print the best image out on ZINK paper. I would then peel off the backing of the ZINK paper and stick that to my business cards and give that to the people that I met.
Here is why this is a good idea.
1. Taking a photo with someone creates that shared experience.
2. While the photo prints – about a minute or so you can give that person your elevator pitch.
3. The person walks away with your business card and a unique experience sure to make them remember who you are.
Here’s what I mean
I’ll certainly be using my ZINK paper, Xshot and PoGo printer at Blogs, Brews and Belly Laughs II.
