Business cards

After several years of selling online I have finally had some proper business cards made to send out with my orders! Hurrah!

Having ordered a few really high quality cards from Moo earlier this month to test out which images worked best, I fell in love with the riot of colour in this image...


... and ordered a big batch from another printing company. Moo cards are great but they're not really a cost effective option for me as I send out so many parcels. I got my new cards from 123Print and though they're not quite as perfect as the Moo cards (& I might experiment with different weights of card / different finishes in future) they do the job very well.

Today was a parcel packing day so I took a quick snap of one of my new cards in action, tucked into a bundle of pastel felt with one of my handmade thank-you notes. I always include a little handwritten note with my orders and make the cards myself whenever I have the time.


I'm loving the extra bit of colour the cards add to my parcels and - fingers crossed - hopefully some of my customers will keep the cards for future reference or use them to pass my details on to friends, etc instead of just recycling them!

I agree with the Moo cards not being very "price effective". I looked at a few of my images and they really looked great on them but like you during my busy season I send out too many packages to balance the cost of the Moo cards.

Maybe when I'm famous lol.

Lovely! I wish I could afford to have Moo cards to send out with every order but you're right, it's just not practical when you're talking about frequent supplies orders.

Hi Desi, I don't use any glue in my felt crafting - and I used double-sided sticky tape to make the heart cards: http://bugsandfishes.blogspot.com/2010/02/love-notes.html
