I got new business cards for the BlogHer conference. I ordered cards for the first time right before the conference last year, but my phone number has changed so I needed new ones.
I played it safe last time. They were classy with a retro typewriter theme.
I’m in a different place now than I was even a year ago, so I was excited to redesign my cards.
I’m confident calling myself a freelance writer now. I have been able to create a patchwork quilt of steady work. I have areas I write about more than others.
My days of slaving away writing about portable toilets for a penny a word are over.
I wanted all of that reflected in my business card.
Basically, I wanted “me on a card.”
And I got it!
Aqua. Zebra print. A pink chandelier. A photo of me wearing my chunky lime green beads.
I actually made two cards.
And one is double sided, so it’s actually three if you count both sides.
The double-sided card has my general information on one side. The other side is devoted to my weight loss blog, Shrinking Momster.
At the last minute, I decided to do a card showcasing my Examiner work. I have nine titles there. I chose a folded card and listed each title on the inside. I wrote some other places my work has been featured on the back.
My husband teased me about all of the pink, lime green, aqua and zebra prints, but I think they are pretty awesome. And I got a ton of compliments at the conference.
How did you go about designing your business cards?
