I’ve been on the business card hunt since last January and I’ve finally landed on a design and gotten them in. I was so worried that two months after ordering something I would no longer like it, or want something different, so I went with a very flexible approach. I ordered a really high quality stock (220lb) with my House of Earnest logo in letterpress. That’s all. No name, no title, no twitter handle… nothing.
Here is the fun part though, I got the business card stamp from Mae Mae Paperie with my vitals. I felt that over time, I could change up the color of the ink, or even get a whole new stamp if I wanted a different look. I wouldn’t be stuck with one font or one design if my tastes change, but the logo is a constant. I did choose my stamp design because the simplicity of it and the font (georgia) go along with the branding of the site, however.
Another bonus is that I can use unstamped cards as little note cards for clients or project partners and they’re not just limited to one use (which you know I’m big on)!
So there we have it. My kind of DIY, kind of custom letterpress cards. They have all of the flexibility I’m after, and allow me to get a little creative.
Do you have a business card or calling card for yourself? Did you feel like it was a huge commitment to narrow down the design?
Have a Happy Tuesday, guys!
