Best Practice – Cards

Here’s another installment in my best practice series – business cards! If you have ever received something from me in the mail, it’s likely you have received one of my blog business cards / calling cards. They are a quick and easy way to market my blog.

I set up a template in Word that fits two cards across by six cards down. I printed it on regular white cardstock from the office supply store. I especially like to change the photo for the seasons.

If you are going to carry cards with you to market your blog or your crafts, you must have a stylish holder to keep them in! I made this cute little card holder using a pattern from Amy Karol’s first book.

I had to make it a little wider than the pattern instructions in order to fit these cards. Now it’s big enough to carry my blog cards and my etsy shop cards.

Last week, Anne suggested getting some MOO cards printed up because they are more portable than carrying around a photo portfolio. Check out this handful of MOO cards I had printed a couple months ago for my shop. They are fun to have in a bowl at my desk because the unusual size and the bright photos attract people’s attention.

You never know when you’re going to strike up a conversation about your blog or the crafty things you make. People are almost always interested in what you do for fun, but they may not remember your name, your blog name, or your URL. Never leave home without a card!

Feel free to share your best practice ideas in the comments or link to your blog.

  1. Love,Love, Love this idea. You are very creative. It just keeps getting better every day. The cards are really pretty. I can see why people would stop to look, take a card and you are off. Possible alot more business. Love the card holder. I have made them before, but not with two pockets. Really like that idea.

  2. I love them! Especially the MOO cards 🙂 My second favorite thing (after fabric) would be paper. My mother in law got me started making cards a while back, super fun!

  3. I’m such a goof – I carry my cards around (in nothing as pretty as yours), but rarely hand them out. My husband on the other hand is always giving them to people. I think I need to get over myself! Thanks for reminding me 🙂

  4. There you go with your buzz words again! 🙂 You are so organized and on top of things! I loved getting your business cards with my recent winnings from you! I really love the idea, especially when you can carry them around in such a cute little holder. Those moo cards are really pretty cool, too!

  5. Thank you so much for educating me on MOO cards – I didn’t even know what they are! What a great idea!
