Business Cards by BuildASign

Being a Saline Ambassador for Boogie Wipes, I was in desperate need of business cards to pass out with my samples. All this time I had been handwriting all of my info on index cards. Can we say "writer's cramp"? So I was ecstatic when I had the opportunity to review business cards from BuildASign.

  
I wanted to incorporate my blog into it too, but as always, once I started the design process I was pressed for time. The fifth try I decided to just speed through it & use my blog background on my business cards. Thinking about it now, I should have kept it a basic white & just used my blog button. Oh well, next time. (Because there will be a next time.)


The design process was easy, far easier than I had anticipated actually. You have the option of using a professionally designed template, or uploading your own. Next you add your text & if you'd like, clip art. The hard part is over! Not that it was actually hard, but it was the most time consuming. I went with 12pt. cardstock, 2"x3.5", single-sided options which are all pretty standard. And the flat matte paper was included (which is good since I despise glossy business cards). Next up, quantity, add to cart, enter any promos & continue to secure checkout. 

Check out that cardstock!

After about 2 weeks my business cards arrived! I have to say that I was very impressed with how they turned out (despite my rushed design job). And the thickness of the cardstock makes them perfect to carry around in my purse with some extra Boogie Wipes samples. Not to mention my writer's cramp is gone!

BuildASign also offers signs, banners, magnetics & accessories.
