|The front and back of my super fabulous moo cards!|
Aaah, the end of summer. Now is the time when we try to squeeze in the last of our fun-filled days in order to prepare ourselves for the more schedule driven fall. We’re focused on getting the kids back to school, buying new backpacks and sharpening lots of pencils…oh yeah, it’s definitely that time. Something about school starting back up for the kids always gets me into “back to business” mode. It doesn’t matter if I work all summer long, when school gets back in session, I get motivated and my energy is renewed.
This is my third set of cards since starting my blog 2 1/2 years ago. The first set was made for me on the computer by one of my friends right before I attended Bloggy Boot Camp, my very first blogging conference. I was so proud of those cards with their tear away edges! I hardly had any information on them, and was wondering if I should add some sort of graphic to take away from all of the white space! With my new moo business cards, I’ve come a long way from that first set!
Here’s what makes the moo cards stand out to me:
These cards are printed on thick premium paper stock that feel like success. I’m not joking! These cards are so luxurious! It took me a second to realize that I wasn’t holding 2 or 3 cards, that’s just how thick one card is.
There’s a light, non-reflective coating on the cards, which pretty much ensures that if your card happens to get a little wet, the ink won’t run. It also makes them look really chic…like you’re handing out a little piece of art!
The Print Quality
The most impressive thing about the cards, though, was the brightness of the photograph that I used. Ayva (yes, my 3 year old!) took this picture, and I thought she captured a very authentic me. Perfect for bloggers and brands who like to judge a book by its cover!
Okay, so I’ve shared how I’m getting back in business mode, now I want to hear from you. What kind of tools do you use to help you in achieving your career goals? Do you have business cards?
