G&P Business Card

I’ve been a busy bee, stringing together bracelet after bracelet, beads rolling across the floor, having to rewind repeatedly so as not to miss a single tear shed by Scotty McCreery on Idol.  In a few days time my Etsy Store will be up and running with a full stock … I hope you all like (LOVE).  In the meantime, it occurred to me (with the help of my savvy hubby, of course) that I’ll need business cards.  I already have the (boring) standard rectangular white card-stock version for my professional life, but it’s likely time for a “creative side” calling card.  Back in the day, a calling card was a professional’s business card.  How cute is this attorney’s “calling card” from 1895?  He has a mustache!  And I too, have the best of references.  My mom.

Because I use the standard calling card by day, I wanted a funkier version (by night) for everything else.  I feel like this is making me sound like a “call girl.”  Moving on.  My top Etsy picks:

{1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6}

Tiny prints also offers a few sweet square calling cards, and they will print my logo on the back of the card.  Here’s one version (front and back) … too plain?

Decisions.  Decisions.

    “..I feel like this is making me sound like a “call girl.” ” hahaha.

    I loved EVERY single of it, but my fav is the 2. last and the last one(:

  2. I don’t have a favorite. I would like my own design or photo on my business card. I have been thinking of getting business cards but haven’t gotten around to it. I would love to see more of your bracelets when you get them done.

  3. Too cute! I especially love the second one! But the last one is a great choice as well 🙂

    Good luck with the shop! I’m sure it’ll be amazing!

  4. I’m a big fan of self stamping business cards – they feel so personal while still looking professional. Not to mention, having a custom rubber stamp made is super cheap (about $15) and Paper Source sells pre-cut business cards in every color (ever) so it’s easy to make your card totally your own. Oh, also, you never have to worry about running out, just stamp as you go.

    (I should probably mention that stamping is my go to alternative for pretty much all low budget projects that can’t afford letterpress… personal preference.) 😉

    I love the yellow chevron stripes, and these unique cards are so perfect for people who like to stand out a bit from the rest.

    I love the Chevron — and the previous commenter’s idea about a stamp.

    Re: your draft on Tinyprints, I like it! It is a lot of information, so I wouldn’t worry about it being too simple… I think simple is good when it comes to business cards.

    • I was wondering the same thing! I think it’s probably too much info … I may just stick to blog, etsy, e-mail address.

  7. those are all really good choices!! i’ll be curious to see what you choose!

    I love these choices! I’m working on getting business cards too, just for networking & blogger meet-ups and such. It’s such a fun endeavor! I really enjoyed the vintage business card you shared too. HA love that mustache. <3 EverRubyGirl.blogspot.com

  9. I love Scotty McCreery! I couldn’t take my eyes off the TV last night watching his every move. Such a cutie! These cards are adorable too – I should have some made! Great post!

    Okay…I must have missed a post (or ten), because I missed the fact that you’re starting an Etsy store. Super. Another place for me to spend all of my money! I really like the sweet square cards; I think they really suit the style and “flava” of your website. However, I also el-oh-vee-ee the chevron print ones (probably because I, too, am obsessed with chevron print (and houndstooth)). I they’re bada$$! I think it depends on what shtick you’re going for. I’d love to see the finished product!
