spring, in blog land, means a surge in conferences, meet-ups, events, parties, and even networking at the playground. when your surrounded by a sea of awesome writers, bloggers, small shop owners - your first impression, your business card, has to stand out and be remembered. all of this was on my mind when i rebranded my blog last fall i began the hunt for a new business card. did i want to design my own? or go with a pre made? would it mirror my blog header or speak more of me as a person? what paper would i go with? either way, i needed a w o w factor.
minted.com. we had previously ordered our christmas cards with them and was wow-ed all the way to the mailbox as i sent off our quality, eye catching cards. i knew working with their business cards would be no exception. with over two-hundred and thirty designs and multiple "create your own" options i knew i could confidently select a card that would be unique and amazing and say so much about my style at first glance. the styles and choices they offer are so fun! i found myself gravitating towards the mommy "calling cards" multiple times before reminding myself i was there to pick out blog cards. what a awesome concept though, i can't even tell you how many times i have been trying to navigate the crazy halls at preschool and the mom of this weeks best friend is trying to grab my number or email and we are scrambling for a tiny scrap of paper. there are even daddy options and little reminder cards to hand out when you set a playdate.
a triple thick, sweet bees card for myself. it was so fun to design - with custom options i chose to add my email, twitter/instagram handle, and most importantly my blog url. i went back and forth on doing something more reflective of my blog design but in the end just chose what screamed "me"! i can guarantee my blog look will change again and i would like a card that will grow with it and not have to be replaced often. the few i have already handed out have received so many compliments. right away the triple thickness make a statement and the simple yet eye catching design leads the viewer right to the important important information. i am so so pleased!
