As promised, here are five more of my favorite cards.
- Inward Facing Girl is a case study in consistent branding. This design is also on her blog and Twitter background. She also handed out little chocolates with the same logo (not pictured because I ate it immediately upon acquiring).
- Classic, non? Alexandra Hedin‘s cards give you a glimpse into her sophisticated, clean aesthetic.
- I wish I could do Tabitha Evans-Johnson‘s card justice – it has gold painted edges! Luckily, she discussed their wonderful pretty on her blog, Glitter & Ganache.
- Joel Flory is a wedding photographer. His cards spotlight his hometown.
- Lyndsey Payzant‘s cards conveniently list what she does (blogging, tweeting, working) with relevant information to the right. Perfect.
I was handing out my (seemingly less impressive) cards like gang-busters to anyone with an open hand. I still have about 300 left with “Helena Butters” and only 9 months left with that as my name.
Non-bloggers may not know this, but most of us bloggers have business cards. Yep, just like you have business cards for your job. Why? Precisely for meet-ups and conferences like Alt Summit where we want to collect and trade blog links and Twitter handles.
I’ve collected so many lovely cards over the past few days - I had to share a few of my faves. Being surrounded by such creative people has been such an inspiration. These aren’t your standard calling cards.
- Look at the beautiful scripty-calligraphic fonts on these cards from There Comes a Yes and How Joyful.
- The following card from Brandi Bernoskie is deliciously vague. Who wouldn’t want to check out her site after receiving this?
- Heather Davidson of Joy of All Crafts had such a clever idea – she sewed fabric to the back of her cards. So appropriate for a craft blogger! She blogged about the process as well, and I adore that she included “trial and error.”
- Hillary Schuster did a fantastic job with personal branding – the picture below is also her blog and Twitter image. The party hat is famous; I got asked if I was “the party hat girl” and … part of me wanted to say yes.
Yes, there are more. This post had to be a two-fer to share all the lovely!
Today at Alt, I got:
- Thirty-five business cards (three with treats attached).
- A total fan-girl moment when HGTV tweeted a picture of Emily Henderson and me (twice! omgdie).
- Confirmation that the flash on my camera is the devil.*
- A necklace with a wooden kitty on it (designed by Evie Kemp – see pic below!). I rocked it all day and will again tomorrow.
- New blogs to read / twitter accounts to follow.
- Many tips and ideas for future blog posts.
*Ok, but ignore this when looking at the images associated with this post as yes, I did have to use flash to get clear pictures of my goodies on the hotel bedspread.
