As some of you may have experienced, when you mention having a blog, some people ask what it is, and some may even ask for a card. For many years I was just printing my own cards at home, using card stock and keeping the design simple, but recently I was longing for cards with more character and panache, and just last week Patrick designed me some fresh business cards!
Patrick asked me what I wanted, because usually I have an idea for what I want, and either draw or describe it, and Patrick whips them up in the computer, but this time I was really lacking in ideas. I said “Oh, maybe something that reflects my blog’s look…” And then I also had a small argument in my head…I wanted my interest western imagery to be somehow showcased too, and Patrick said he could design two cards, and he designed one that reflected my blog well, and with the other, he took a vintage postcard that featured a cowgirl and altered it to accommodate my information.
We went to Moo for these cards, as they are easy, relatively inexpensive, and you can have the back side an image, so we went through my blog selecting an array of photos to feature on the back. I wanted to highlight my wide style range, as well as feature my cosplaying. And these beauties came just in time! Expo is this weekend, and I do get asked a lot for my information there! And we’ll be heading to Palm Springs soon too, and it’s nice to have cards to offer when I ask if I can take photos when visiting shops.
Do you have business cards for your blog?
