Making Connections: Blog Business Cards
Often when I am out and about sketching I run into people who are curious and would like to know more. I give them my URL, but of course they soon forget. So, I decided to make up a “business” card that I could give out. It has proven very useful, both for random encounters and to give to fellow SketchCrawlers.
This turned out to be a really fun project. I ordered the cards online (from Overnight Prints, although there are many companies that do this). They provide a template file (.pst) that can be manipulated in Photoshop Elements. I spent about two hours designing the front of the card, and about a week agonizing over the exact right color of blue for the back!
There are many production options for the cards themselves. I choose heavy card stock with a glossy finish on the front which looks great. On the back is a matte finish: perfect for writing notes.
