You know how 10 years ago you could pick up a box of business cardstock and print your own cards. This was back in the day when the cards you printed had no logo…just your name, job title, business name and address, and perhaps an email, but definitely not twitter or Facebook or urls. No the biz cards of the late 90s/early 2000s were simple if you were a WAHM. Work was simple back then, wasn’t it? You used the biz card to call the person on the phone. If you were very “tech savvy” you emailed the person, but many people I worked with in the book publishing field did not have email in the 90s/early 2000s. Once you stashed the card in your Rolodex you were done. No more recordkeeping needed. Gosh, could I age myself anymore with this post!
Times have changed and this back-to-working-after-being-a-stay-at-home-mom has not kept up with the trends. Sure I have a business card, but the card is the DIY variety — you know the print-at-home kind. I set up a template on my computer with my name/blog/twitter/Facebook and hit print. But the business cards look…well printed at home…which they are…with inconsistencies in printing strengths of ink.
Over the past few months I have looked in to getting business cards professionally printed. For one reason — inertia, money, indecisiveness — or another I have put off getting biz cards printed on a machine other than my taxed-to-the-max laser printer until now. I’m thrilled to announce that I am the proud owner of a spectacular set of business cards. Yes!! Squee!! Here’s the card…
Isn’t this the prettiest card you have ever seen?? I love the color. Adore the way my blog logo looks like it was drawn on each card. Doesn’t the blue go beautifully with the blue of the border and the pastel colors of the sleepover girls photo? I’m gushing…I know, but really have you ever seen a more perfect card??
I love how they turned out and they are even more impressive IRL!
wow, they look great! I love them.
I don’t have time to edit this post, but my business card was featured on @momcommblog / @adventuroo’s blog feature “Super Fab Bloggy B-card Week.” Thanks, Melissa for featuring my business card. Thanks also to Tiny Prints for the opportunity to do a business card review.
