Business of Blogging: Business Cards

| July 14, 2012 | 4 Comments

The hotel is booked. My husband has planned time off to take care of the kids. And my elevator pitch is mentally ready. BlogHer 2012 is coming up fast and I’m preparing for my trip. But with the recent launch of Sarah by the Sea, there’s one thing missing: business cards that present both my food and lifestyle work. Enter Uprinting, an online printing company that offers a variety of products from rolled canvases to die-cut business cards. I ordered Uprinting business cards for my trip.

What I need is a card that shares my personal information — how to contact me, my online portfolio and my social media links — along with my blog information. It also needed my photo, so that when folks look back over the cards, they immediately associate me with the name.

On the reverse, I have the logos for my websites, their URLs and descriptions.

Uprinting offers both traditional business cards and die-cut ones. It was the creative and unusual die-cut business cards from Uprinting that really caught my eye though. I opted for the half-circle shape. I added my images and information using the tools provided on the website.

Ordering was easy. Since I knew just what I wanted, I was able to assemble it online in about 30 minutes — that included time for proofing and tweaking. Then I clicked order and was done.

After ordering, I received a confirmation email from Uprinting. It took about two weeks for the order to be prepared, shipped and to arrive to me. There are faster delivery options available though. If you are in a rush, considering paying to upgrade to a faster method.

When the box of cards finally arrived, I ripped them open in anticipation. The cards are great — a nice thick, firm, glossy stock and beautiful printing. Not only are they a unique shape, but they also are well-produced and of high quality. These cards from Uprinting are really pretty awesome. If you haven’t ordered cards for your conferences this summer yet, consider springing for these high quality ones. I can’t wait to hand them out.
