Great Business Cards from Blissdom

I love creative print pieces so much, that I’m a bit of a business card collector. Well, I collect the really good ones and stash them away for design inspiration.

Today, I’m featuring some of my favorite cards I received at the Blissdom blog conference. If you are attending any type of event to promote yourself at a large event such as this, think about doing something different. These cards will give you some great ideas!

Of course my own were one of my faves!! I actually designed four circle cards, one for each of my blogs, one for my partner Angie’s photography business and one to thank our sponsors. I then spent hours tying them together with ribbon (it wasn’t too bad since I did it while watching Lost). My friends at Ussery Printing printed these for me. They have a nice digital press that is very affordable.

This card by The DIY Dish is so great! Kim and Kris are twins and after seeing this card and them together…. I definitely wanted to visit their web site. They seriously wowed me with their branding!

You don’t have to be a graphic designer to wow people. Tip Junkie made bookmarks from shrinky dinks! The label on the bag says “I hope you’ll “bookmark” www.tipjunkie.com and be inspired everyday.”    •     Mabel’s Labels attached their product to a post card with a photo of Caitlin “your Mabel’s BBF (blogger best friend). When you are at huge events, having a photo really helps you remember who was who. The larger format keeps you from loosing it and helps it stand out. Great idea!

And speaking of photos, I absolutely loved J.J.’s card! You can tell I had it in my pocket the night we met Harry Connick Jr. and danced. ha! This was such a cute and memorable card that I couldn’t throw it away. It fit her personality to a tee! The back had a questionnaire: We met at… We Talked About…  Great job J.J.!  I’m hoping to see this as her new blog header soon.

Next week I will fill you in on the workshop I spoke at during Blissdom. I’ve got some tips to help you with your own branding and design for your blog. Standing out from the crowd is a good thing!

  1. My business cards where a huge disappointment, but Staples made it right. I really like my old cards better. Live and learn.

    I’ve really enjoyed looking at, admiring and comparing (in a good way) everyone’s business cards. There are some really creative women out there. Such an honor to meet them.

  18. Wow Amy! THANK YOU so much for your spotlight on our business card! What a thrill it was to come across this today. I agree with you on all the other cards as well. Such clever people out ther- including yourself! We have to tell you, that when we were first getting a logo designed, the graphic designers came back with a rough sketch of this one plus several others. Our immediate reaction to this was a very easy, “No way.” The thought of having our “faces” on there as part of the logo was just a little awkward for us. We almost went completely in a different direction. However, after some thorough talk on branding, we decided that this would definitely be the best way to go. We’re really glad we did now, but it definitely took some convincing in the beginning! We’re so glad that you thought enough of it to share. You’re awesome!

    • @Kris and Kim,

      This is the perfect testimony on why to hire a good graphic designer to help create your brand. You two are you brand and that’s what makes it work! You made a good choice. I love it!!

  19. Fabulous designs for your round business cards, Amy! So unique and memorable! LOVE them!

  20. You just had to pull out the short card, did ya? LOL! I had no idea you had written that on there. :)

  22. Great ideas for your cards. Adore them. I think I love you more and more everytime I find something out about you:) I also have a desire to collect business cards! I have a folder for ideas from them. Love it.

  23. I think I am in love with the circle business cards and the tag card the best. Thanks for the inspiration.

  24. I guess I didn’t get a chance to meet you- my biz cards were chocolate! :) Love these other ideas, too. I am trying to think of something clever for my next conference- TBEX for travel bloggers. I am thinking luggage tags…
