After attending my first beauty bloggers meet up a few months ago I understood exactly why so many bloggers have business cards made. It is so useful to hand them out when you meet people rather than scrambling to write your details down or pop them in a phone and they are lovely keepsake from meet up and events you attend. Since ordering them I haven’t looked back!
I was lucky enough to order mine from Vista Print when they had a brilliant promotion on. The business cards themselves (250 of them) were actually free so I only had to pay for postage and packaging which was an amazing deal, especially as I wasn’t sure about the idea initially so didn’t want to end up spending a fortune on a load of business cards that would sit in my drawer for years to come.
The website is reasonably easy to use and it was fun to design my cards. It did, however, make me very tempted to buy a whole heap of them as there are so many gorgeous designs! Haha. In the end I decided on white double sided cards with a pretty purple floral design. They actually match my very first blog design perfectly but even though that isn’t around any more I thought they were cute and girly so fit my blog well.
The ordering process was also easy and at the check out you are tempted by a number of different products all hosting your design. I admit I gave in and bought a ‘Kimberley’s Beauty Blog’ pen also.. cheesy I know but too cool to resist!
This is where things went a bit belly up. I noticed I had been over charged with delivery and also some labels had made their way into my basket without my knowledge. This was pretty frustrating at the time but Vista Print responded to my email within minutes and rectified the problem.. very impressive!
When the business cards arrived I couldn’t wait to open them and I am very pleased with the results. They look and feel very professional and contain all the information I wanted without being squashed. The only downside is that I am now bombarded with e-mails from Vista Print daily which is pretty annoying.
What do you think of my business cards? Do you have any?
