After having reminded myself to have some made (time and time again), I finally placed an order for official Charley Project business cards. I write down my URL for somebody a couple of times a week at least, and I’m getting tired of writing it on receipts and candy wrappers and stuff. So I went to one of those websites that makes cards and had them design some for me, using one of their plainer templates. Just one side. (Oddly enough, it actually cost more to have the other side blank than to have something on it.)
So here’s my business card:
Very tasteful Meaghan, looks good.
Why did you not include your name?
It didn’t seem to be important.
It is quite simple and clean. Congratulations on having your business cards :). And yeah business cards are still important today, like you said, in your case, they help you not to write your website URL again and again.
And IMHO, design and quality is also very important for the success of any business card (for advertising purposes), so it is not a bad idea to do some good research before hiring any printing services.
I used VistaPrint. I think they did a pretty good job, but I admit I didn’t do anything in the way of research of price comparison — I just picked them cause I’d heard of them. I got 250 cards, and they offered another 250 for half price so I ordered that too. So I have enough to last awhile. I also ordered a nifty leather business card holder that will fit in my wallet and holds 25 cards so they don’t get bent or anything.
