Shout Creations Business Card

Posted on September 20, 2010

Whew… It’s been a busy week. I really ment to upload these photos last week but I’m just getting around to it now. So here they are, finally. I canot be happier with the final result. I love the texture of the paper and the color came out just right. It’s a really satisfying feeling knowing that you made your own business cards from scratch.

I learned a lot in the process and hopefully it will rub off on some of my future designs. Most important is that measuring and cutting took twice as long as I thought it would. The phrase “measure twice and cut once ” really came into play. The guys over at Lettre Sauvage were awesome. Cameron helped me every step of the way (actually, he kinda setup most of the work).  He really helped out and I can’t thank him enough. Oh and thanks to Fiona for helping me get the right colors. If you live locally around the Santa Paula area defiantly check them out.

It was really cool to jump back-in-time for a day and see how people were printing back in the 30’s. Oh and if anyone is thinking about doing this in the futre, make sure you leave enough room to register your plates. It will save a ton of time. My website might not be finished but at least I have business cards to hand out!

    Really nifty business cards. 🙂

    Perhaps worth submitting to Card Observer – http://cardobserver.com/ – they’re into those sorts of designs and techniques.
