The Business Side
I have been putting off making business cards for Upcycled by Ash. At first I didn't want too. I wanted to stick with the upcycled theme, get a stamp and make cards out of scrap paper. That still would mean designing a stamp, which I haven't gotten around to doing.
My friends and family disagreed with my not wanting to get business cards. They said I need real cards to look professional. I still thought I could pull it off though. What pushed me over the edge and made me decide to go ahead and get the cards was the number of people asking for them. My husband works in tourism and everyday people ask him about his wife and what she does. He wants to be able to give them a card. He wants me to make some money so he doesn't have to work so hard!
Last night I sat down, brainstormed, and came up with a design. I like it. I'm always worried about how it will look once it's printed but I think it should be OK. I also suck at spelling, so if you see any mistakes PLEASE let me know so I can correct them before I get my cards printed!
I will, of course, be opting for recycled paper when I order the cards. I am also still going to look into the stamp. I think having both as options is a good compromise. I know there will be many times when a handmade, stamped card will be perfectly acceptable.
