Listen to a conversation between a student and a university print shop employee.

听一段学生和大学打印店店员的对话。

Hi, I saw your ad in the campus newspaper.

你好,我看到你在校报登的广告了。

Oh. We don't have any job openings right now.

噢,我们现在没有职位空缺了。

Oh no. I meant the other ad, about the services you provide for students.

噢,不是。我是指另一则广告,说的是你为学生们提供的服务。

You see, I have been working at the campus tutoring center as a maths tutor.

我在学校的指导中心当一名数学辅导老师。

But things have changed, including my schedule.

但情况有变,其中包括我的日程。

And now I want to start doing tutoring work independently.

现在我打算开始独立做些辅导工作。

But in order to, basically, start my own business, I need to get the word out.

但为了做我自己的生意,我需要把消息散播出去。

Ok.

好。

I was thinking I should get something printed up that I can hand out to people.

我在想,我应该打印些东西出来发给人们。

Ah. Well, actually, I just printed up some great-looking flyers for someone doing the same thing.

啊!事实上,我刚刚才为别人打印了一批很好看的传单,他们正在做和你一样的事情。

Flyers. Yeah, that's an idea.

传单。这是个不错的想法。

I guess then I could post them around campus.

我猜接着我就能在校园里张贴出来了。

Yeah. And you can hand them out too. But, oh, you know what?

对,你还能把它们发出去。不过,你知道吗?

I did something really neat for someone last week.

我上周帮别人做了一些很精致的东西。

She didn't want to go the traditional route, you know, business cards, flyers, so we customized pencils for her.

她不想走传统路线,你知道的,就名片和传单那些东西,所以我们为她量身定做了铅笔。

Pencils?

铅笔?

Yeah. You know, a little message printed on the pencil.

对,你懂的,就是在铅笔上印些东西。

Oh, that's cool.

噢,真棒。

Yeah. But you should know, it's not our cheapest option.

对。但你应该明白,这不是最便宜的。

Oh, and you know those little sticky notes?

你知道那些便利贴吗?

You do those too?

你们也做那些吗?

Well, we did once.

我们曾做过一次。

I think those bright pieces of paper would be real attention getters.

我觉得那些亮色纸片能真正吸引人们的注意。

You know, students use them all the time, so they should be good for business.

你知道的,学生经常在用这些,所以这对生意肯定有好处。

I don't know why we haven't done more.

我不明白为什么我们之前不做多些。

Wow.

哇。

So you've got some options.

所以,你手上有好几种选择。

Right. Well, what about business cards?

对。那名片呢?

My friend has these business cards. She does tutoring too.

我的朋友就有名片。她也是从事辅导工作的。

And she got them at this place in town, but they were kind of expensive.

她在城里做的名片,但是挺贵的。

For business cards?

名片?

Well, I don't know what your friend paid, but we could do something real simple and it wouldn't be much.

我不知道你朋友花了多少钱,但我们能做些很简单的名片,价钱不会很高。

Like for a batch of 250 for one of our standard designs, 20 dollars maybe.

比如一批标准设计的名片,250张,大概20美金吧。

20 dollars sounds okay.

20美元听起来可以接受。

Now, there are some other choices that will affect the cost.

还有不同的选择,会影响价格。

You know, like different background patterns, using colour ink, that sort of thing.

你懂的,就像不同的背景样式,用彩色墨水,就是那一类的东西。

And it also depends on how many words you want to include.

价格也根据你打算印多少字来决定。

Ok. Well, I know what I want them to say. But I am just thinking, I kind of like that pencil idea.

好。我知道我想印什么。但我在想,我挺喜欢铅笔的想法。

Yeah. I thought it was neat.

对。我觉得那很精致。

Now, of course you can only fit your name and phone number, and like, in your case, "maths tutoring" on it.

当然了,你可以只印你的名字和电话号码,还有比如,就你而言,“数学辅导”。

Right. Well, I could customed design the business cards though right?

我能自己定制名片对吧?

That's what my friend did.

我朋友就是这么做的。

She said she designed them at the computer right there at the print shop.

她说她是在打印店的电脑上设计出来的。

Well, you can do that here, too.

你也能在这儿做。

But a custom design would be a bigger investment for your business than one of our standard designs.

但对你的生意来说,定制设计比起我们的标准设计来说,是一笔更大的投资。
