Default Promotional Business Card Etiquette

Am I supposed to leave one on every Bonnahvulle I see or should I be selective and only give them to strangers in person

Please consider the weather if you're gonna leave on on a car. I hate coming out to my car when it'* rained to find a flyer or business card stuck to it.

How about many more than 4?

Wanna keep 'em less wet this time of year (btw, these new cards are pretty weather resistant, and if you're worried about the weather, laminate them like I do).

Put the card between the glass and housing of the driver'* left mirror. They'll see it, and the water from the windshield won't get it wet as it runs down.

Also, if they get in without seeing it, and THEN see it, they don't have to get out. They can roll the window down and grab it.

The ones I've handed out I carefully tucked into the driver'* side window. Something about the way our windows are shaped, theres a bit of a natural gap there.

I just got mine in the mail Wednesday, and they look great BTW!

My question:
That space for the user name...Is that for them to use when/if they join? Or for our user name, so they have a "friend" here when/if they join. I thought the latter.

Your username. Correct sir. That way it'* more personal than Spam. Not just some random person dumping a flyer or card on a car. There'* a hint of personality and reality behind it. And they can thank/curse you for it when they join.
