More Business Card Ideas

My business card ideas have evolved a bit since I last wrote about them, so I thought I'd post an update.

I'm still using Moo.com to print my cards, because they're awesome. A lot of people think they're a little on the pricey side, but I think it's worth the extra money to be able to put a different photo on the back of each card. It's like having a portfolio in my pocket! And I'm loving the new rounded corners option.

I'm also still using the same design I blogged about last time. A vertical card with my shop name at the top and my logo and details at the bottom with a big blank spot in the middle. The original idea was that they were earring cards (once I punched holes), note cards and business cards all in one.

Now they're still all that, but I've modified them a bit so they can hold necklaces and fit in the little boxes I ship in. I score across the top, just under my shop name, and fold it. Then I measure out where I want the earring holes and the slits for the necklace. Then I just cut the slits and use a thumb tack to poke the holes. This makes cards that stand up a little on their own for display purposes and sit nicely in the boxes I use.

Oh! And to all my fellow Canadian jewelry sellers - I finally found boxes that are only 3/4" tall, which means they can go through letter mail instead of parcel. That's at least $5 saved! Check out Noble Pack. The product number is M201-W.
