business cards

business cards
I ordered new, business cards last year. I have a very small etsy shop, in which I sell mixed, paper kits; handmade paper crafts; and used/unused craft supplies. I used to sell paper bag albums and premade memory books on ebay. For the occasional sale I make, I like to add a business card to the package pointing to various places the buyer can find me- ie. my blog, shopInstagram,Twitter- because I appreciate getting pretty, business cards (see here) when I buy handmade goods. In the past, when I was swapping artistic kits, I would also include a business card there. (See here and here). In previous years, I've had mini cards made from Moo Inc. Mini cards are 1/2 the size of a business card- and though I really like the mini cards, they can be expensive. These are some of my moo cards from previous years:

I like to take pictures from blog posts to have business cards made. If you'd like to read more about a particular picture, I've linked to the post that pertains to the picture.

I recently branched out and used a different company (Vistaprint). I liked the results:

I went with a picture of my favorite supplies and blog url on the front. On the back, I added the various places to find me:

I have to cross off the email with a sharpie because that email is no longer my email address (long story). My email now is jessicarrodarte (at) gmail (dot) com.

When I receive a business card, I immediately add it to my collection (I collect pretty business cards like they're baseball cards). I hope mine makes the cut in your collection. ;)

  1. Your new cards are awesome! I love all the elements you included and the black background. Good to know that you were pleased with VistaPrint. I've used MOO in the past and really love their cards. I had looked at VistaPrint as a slightly lower priced option, but wasn't sure if I'd like the cards. May have to give them a try!
