Just like we talked about with packaging, business cards are essential to a small, independent designer. Think about it – you’re in the grocery store, and someone comments on your super awesome handmade top or necklace. You say thank you and pull out a business card, right?! Well, you should. But it shouldn’t be just be any ole boring business card – those will probably just end up lost somewhere or in the trash. Just like your packaging, your business cards should be memorable and show personality. When face to face with a potential customer, you only have that tiny little rectangle to hand them in hopes that they remember you. So it’s best to make an impact!
Whether you DIY, choose a graphic designer, or use a professional website for your design (MOO.com and Vistaprint are some good ones), make sure you present your business in the best way you possibly can. Maybe you use an unconventional material or shape, or you hand dye or watercolor each card yourself, or you just include a special little detail that will make it stand out (like those stitches above. So cute!).
Whatever you do, be original, and be creative.
