New Business Cards


I finally got around to making new business cards.  I loved my old ones that my niece had designed for me several years ago, but the info on them was hopelessly out of date. I kept hearing about Moo Cards and how easy they were to work with and they were right.  It's all done online with super directions and many opportunities to change your mind.  After I had it all set up and sent through I realized that I could have had a color for the background or for the print.  They had a lime green background that was the exact color as the quilt. that would have been cool, but I was too late. Maybe next time, but these should last me awhile.  I wish that I had them when I was in Houston.


I only ordered 100 because I don't want to get stuck with too many in case my info changes again.  I chose a slice of a small quilt that I like for the front and all of the cards will have this design. It doesn't look like it here,but the left side is pure white.



 I chose two different designs for the back.  This shot of one of my cabbage quilts will be on half of them



and this slice of my "Technicolor Ginkgoes"for the other half. This is also the quilt that I am currently using as the banner for my blog.

I wanted something colorful and eye catching and I think I succeeded.  What do you think?

I've linked up again with Off the Wall Friday.  Go see what everyone's up to.

Norma: these are very cool cards. Love them. I used an online service to print mine (Vista print)... but I did not add a quilt on the back. What a great idea.

I also think that you succeeded in having a colorful and eye-catching design for your business cards! With business cards, it's important that your business is incorporated in the design, and you did just that. And since business cards represent your business, it's a must that they are printed nicely.
