I’m a professional. I am a social media consultant, blogger and vlogger. I may tell you and have a decent website, but there is something about handing a nice looking business card to a colleague or potential client.
This weekend I put myself up to the task of getting that new business card. With a recent pitch from Minted.com to try out their service, I thought, hey, why not. Their artistic business cards would be a big change from the standard big box business card supplier of nearly all my colleagues.
Saturday Card Making
I had a bit of time Saturday afternoon to create and order the cards. I needed far more time than that. Why? Because I spent so much time browsing the Minted.com website. I wanted to get married again. Well, maybe not married again (very much happily married) but I did want to order new wedding invitations. I was in aw with the stunning letterpress wedding invitations. They are just gorgeous. I mean, look at this:
Back to Card Making
Well, I did refocus and got my business cards done. I had loads of help from my Facebook Page who chimed in on the best wording and design for my needs. I ended up selecting the Botanic Card designed by Leslie Hammer of Unless Someone Like You. My new business card came out beautiful! They are expected to arrive in the next week! I can’t wait!
If you haven’t been to Minted.com you must. According to their site: Minted is a global community of independent graphic designers and an online store that prints and sells the best of their designs in the form of paper goods. Essentially, Minted is a BEAUTIFUL assortment of unique cards. You won’t find the standard card, birth announcement, wedding invite or business cards. You will find paper goods that look like they were designed by an artist not a computer. I love that.
I was provided with credit to Minted.com to facilitate a review of their service and product. All opinions, time wasted looking at invitation and beautiful business card are all mine! Mine Mine Mine! (The toddler in my house is starting the to rub off on me!)
