Business Cards

Business CardsDo you want business cards for your blog? The answer may well be yes, especially given how cheap it is to get personalized business cards these days. Go to one of the many web-based card printing services, choose a standard format or design your own, and there you go.

I went with VistaPrint, as you can see. My overall impression is positive. My wave photo works well, was printed well. The text shows up well: the black serif text in the sky, and the white sans-serif text in the sea.

On the other hand, there is a little white stripe down the side of the cards, despite my having uploaded exactly the recommended size. And perhaps I should have sprung the extra for text on the back, which would probably have been the tagline/haiku “Andrew weighs in on the ways in which the web and the world are changing.” The card looks rather vague and new-agey. Then again, it’s unlikely that I’ll give a card to a person unless I have a chance to explain the blog to them.

VistaPrint is pretty relentless when it comes to offering deals. Its actions stress the “best price” part of its tagline more than the “best printing.” Given my price sensitivity when looking for cards, I can’t argue with that too much.

  1. I am a student, so good deals are a must. I have seen the Vista business cards and don’t like how they put the logo on the back if it is one sided. Next time you should try They do full color double sided for a good price. I thought the quality was excellent. Then again, I am a designer, so quality of print is important to me. White stripes down the side are the devil!! haha BLEED!!!
