My old business cards were sorely outdated—bad phone number and wrong address.
Seeing how printing is now a much different beast than say, 8 years ago, I thought I’d get some new ones for the wallet. (And by different I mean that digital presses make small runs quite affordable and easy to submit)
So I went with VistaPrint and paid extra for the heaviest matte stock. If you allow pop-ups and hang on their site long enough, some deal is sure to surface. Mind you, I’ve used this place before and got a heavy discount from their email blasting—bringing the total for 250 cards to about 15 bucks.
If you go this route, I recommend avoiding full color areas/bleeds (you can see how the trim gets merle haggard on the maroon back).
This time, I left out all the stuff that might change, leaving just a URL on the back. I figure I can doodle a talk bubble on the front with my phone number if need be.
And next time, I’ll get a picture where I’m smiling.
