Business Invitation Cards
Inspired by God
This is the absolute most powerful marketing tool to come along in years. Virtually 100% of ALL people that are given this card open it and read the inside invitation. This card has a higher open and read rate than text messages.
Additionally, potential customers keep the card and show it to everyone greatly increasing the marketing reach.
The only marketing limitation depends on the picture or message YOU put on the inside and outside of this card.
Warning, the card and process including this website and videos are under copyright and patent protection.
Part of the copyright and order instructions show what is inside.

Story and Inspiration
One Sunday Pastor Dave at Christian Life Center was making morning announcements. The church wanted to promote the Sunday service to be held at the fairgrounds in Missoula Montana within a few weeks. The pastor asked the congregation to promote the event by telling people.
I assist in the technical running of the services and the first thing in my mind was to hand out business cards at a downtown arts and crafts fair over the next few weeks. However, after marketing the fair for years I realized that business cards do not work. They are like email today. Everyone just throws them away and do not read them.
The next thing that came to my mind was a short movie presentation called "The Interview with God". Almost instantly a phrase popped into my mind, "Invitation from God".
This sparked the idea that people will always open an invitation. If I could make a business card that looked like an invitation, I could get people to at least open the card and possibly show it to others.
During the next two services my mind completely visualized the Invitation Business Card fold and printing layout. By the end of the day I had developed a master for single page, two, four and eight to a page. The interesting part is that eight to a page is just about all you get with a standard business card that will provide only ten to a page. All designs are the same in format but just vary in size and initial page layout.
Over the next week I tested the effect and found that 100% of the people I gave a card / envelope to opened it within a few feet of giving it to them. I gave the card to them in a high traffic area where people were walking by. Many opened it immediately even when just handing it to them as they went by. Most would walk a few feet and open it on the way. Many stopped walking after opening it to read the message. Several, called people the were walking with them back to take a look. They would point back to the booth where I had given them the card.
This card has powerful marketing implications in a day where people ignore most advertising. Individuals that use this advertising method will quickly penetrate any local or mailed market at least over the next few years while it is still unique. An individual can easily produce about twenty-four cards by hand including cutting and folding within an hour.
I was inspired
to copyright and patent the process immediately. We are now almost complete
with a machine that will fold and cut the envelope, cutting production
time significantly. This will allow us to provide a complete card or pre-fold
and a cut card at competitive prices for mass production.
I will provide referral commissions to promote the sale of cards and all remaining profits will go to the support of the spread of the Gospel of Jesus Christ as designated by Roger Johnsrud or his assigns.
Below is the copyright that should appear on any Inspired Business Envelope for those of you that do not have the fear of God.
