My Fashion Blogger Business Cards

My blog's business cards arrived today... 
Why have a business card for a blog you ask?
After attending a couple of events I was asked about 3 times for a business card. Since I didn't have one, I verbally told them about my blog and realized, they would probably NOT remember it by the time they got home! 

So I curiously googled "blogger business cards" when I got home. The most helpful article of them all was this one: What to Put on a Business Card from The Blogger Business Card Showcase. For me a business card, other than for advertising purposes, is a great tool in networking with other bloggers, merchants and other people I may want to collaborate with.

I experimented with both Vista Print and U Printing and went with www.Uprinting.com because they had a user-friendly business card creator where you can see a 360 degree preview before printing. They had so many great tools that allowed me to make my business card from scratch!!


To put a picture or not? that was the question
After looking at other fashion blogger business cards, I saw that many had an outfit picture on one side because, after all, that's what we do... outfit pics. After sleeping on it, I decided to just tie in my blog's header as the focal point of the business card, because what if my outfit goes out of style when I'm handing these out?! Plus it's good to maintain uniformity from your blog, to your other networks as a way of branding. 
QR reader
I thought it was a great idea to include a QR code on the card (plus it made me feel futuristic). That way anyone can scan it with their smart phone and read your blog on their phone. I used www.QRstuff.com to generate my QR code for free.

After experimenting with placement, pictures, etc my main goal was to put as much information on the card without making it look cluttered, so this is what I came up with. I hope you like it and I hope that this post is helpful to you :)


Do you have a business card for your blog??
I would love to see it and keep it my rolladex! Tweet it to me!! @lilbitsofpau

  17. Today's distinct plastic material company plastic business cards can be amazing very little works of art way too. You need to use virtually any coloration within the sunshine as well as incorporate your own emblem as well as virtually any pattern you'll be able to imagine.

  22. Selling a business consumes time and distracts you from the day-to-day operation of the business. A business broker can provide some valuable advice.
