What’s your opening line?

6th February 2012 by Andrea

When you order our new Luxe Business Cards, you’ll notice that we include a card with one of our favourite opening lines in every pack :

When we asked you for some of yours you didn’t disappoint! As far as opening lines go, the movies are a great place to get inspired – which is why so many people end up using movie quotes on their business cards, to rather memorable effect. As always, you’ve come up with some fantastic opening lines, both from the silver screen, and the real world, so here (in full technicolour!) is the winner – and the best of the rest.
