This is No Ordinary Business Card
Chic options aplenty when you want to make a truly personal impression
Move over, Kinko’s. There’s something chicer that gives a whole new meaning to “Here’s my card.”
Whether you’re trolling a business cocktail party for the day gig or an evening soiree intending to pad your social calendar, there’s no need to always hand over the corporate card, which probably features an uber-boring shade of medium blue and a logo that inspires nothing other than yawns.
Why not make a personal statement – or imprint, if you will? After all, it’s not a “business card,” it’s a “calling card” – as in, “Call me, we’ll do lunch/business/drinks/the horizontal mambo,” whatever the nature of your intent.
CocoPink has an array of beautiful, fun, creative designs.
For more refined tastes, check out what Crane’s has to offer.
For strictly social purposes, you can drum up a doppelganger on Design-her Gals and drop your Mini-Me right onto your card (watch out, the site is ridiculously addictive and you’ll get stuck for at least a good half-hour creating your various personas – Daytime You! Evening You! Sporty You! Work You! Stripper You!…and so on).
If you’re creative and technical, you can create your own design with Moo Products.
For the economically minded, VistaPrint’s cards are completely free (yes, that’s $0.00).
Way to make an imprint, girl.
