OK Ok Ok!!! I was catching up on my z's the last couple of days..... so I missed the forum poking me. (Thank you Shannon! Wink

Here it is..... I got a very nice graphic designer to do my logo (from Craigslist - pm me and I will give you his name and info - he was very reasonable!) I went on gotprint.com and they give you very nice glossy finished thick full color double sided cards that you can design with their easy to use program and what you see on the program is what you get. I believe I spent about $24 (that included shipping) for 500 cards. My feeling is vista is never really free - they harrasss you - and EVERYONE has their basic templates - making it harder for you to stand out.

Again I can't take full credit someone on a forum said they loved the printer I chose and suggested getting a graphic designer to help get a more professional result.

I think I trimmed off part in my scan of the back side (whoops!) and already I want to change the pictures.....the problem of using pictures is you get better and don't like them as much later. Another reason I like buying them 500 at a time so I can change the photos as I grow.

Hope it's OK to say here, but I'm a graphic artist. I have over 20 years experience designing logos and marketing materials for individuals and small businesses. If anyone needs help send me a PM and I'm happy to give some tips. If you need any design my rates are really reasonable too. I'm in the process of updating my website, but it has some logos on there to look at. www.catzmarketing.com

Keep in mind that the purpose of the business card is to contact you. The impact should be powerful enough to impress and instill trust that you're professional and creative. Contact info should be really clear so it's easy to call. I like how the front of Wyndy's card is clean and simple, but powerful. It's easy to read the contact info too. Good job.

FINALLY - new ones are at the printers! I'm so bad at Photoshop it's not even funny - sure, I can twist a giant 7' palm tree with monkeys, but can I figure out how to put crop marks on a business card? Noooo....luckily I know graphic design geniuses, haha. I always think I can do it myself, though...

Anyway, this is what I've got! (Bear in mind there's an extra bit of margin around them, for bleed)

Back:


Also, stickers I've ordered (3.5" X 2.0") for events and to put on balloon orders etc:


Whee!

Thanks ladies! So glad you approve...and am happy you like the ladybug! It's pretty adorable, and still fast enough for line work. In retrospect I should have coloured the dots in - but it's still recognizable and looks good, and that's what matters, IMO.

I wasn't even aware that I favoured purple THAT much!! Funny when things just happen, eh?

Kristal, that is looking really good, I especially like the front page. It is nice and simple, but still give all the information you need, while being different and getting attention at the same time.

Kristal,

I learned how to twist the birthday cake after seeing yours in the Christmas card. Thanks for the inspiration. BTW, just how were you planning on using the stickers?

I had planned to hole punch the corner of my business cards and attach with curling ribbon to the balloon creations, but I also like the stickers.

Thanks so much for the positive thoughts!

Stickers: I can't remember where i read/heard about this idea, but someone mentioned using stickers at events where there was more than one painter/twister - advertising and it separates you even more from the competition!

For balloons, I was going to put one on the back/bottom. I haven't thought about when, specifically, beyond large pick-up pieces - they're business card sized, so a bit big to slap on even that ladybug bracelet - but I didn't even think about that until yesterday. I ordered them solely for that event situation. I haven't decided if I'd use them for events I'm at, exclusively. They were $99 for 1000 - at 10 cents each, I may very well use them everywhere!

And yay for you doing the bday cake! It's not very tricky, once you break it down Razz I bring a pre-made one to each birthday as a bonus - total incentive. I also tie two 160's together to make a strap, and the birthday child can wear it as a hat!

(And thank goodness you knew what it was - after I ordered them I wondered if the image was too small...)

You could always slap the sticker on the kid. Maybe slap isn't the best word. But it's a great deal. I'm ready for business cards and stickers.... just waiting on the tax refund.


Oh, and since the sticker is business card sized... it would fit in a rolodex... for your corporate clients.

Oh, yes, that was the plan! They can walk away from my booth painted/with a balloon, and wearing a sticker advertising for me!

Adults can have a "normal" business card Razz

Honestly...the service is not great, and the orders take longer than you're quoted (prob because they're offering these deals...haha), but I'm happy with the product. As long as I order well in advance and don't mind if they take 3 weeks instead of 1, I'm happy, haha.

I can mail you the cards/stickers I've ordered from them?

I put a couple biz cards together. I like the idea of lots of images, but not necessarily on one card. If you agree, see www.moocards.com. I did these myself and had a printer do them quickly. I'm still working on what pics I want to be on them. These were pics of my own kids and my niece that I pulled quickly before an event.

What's a good sight to design your card & can you take the design to vistaprint.com? I've done my cards there before & I'm ready(soon) to get new ones. I want the POP & WOW factor!
