::Etsy Business Cards and Blog Friends::

A couple of weeks ago I ordered business cards for my Etsy shop...
I bought them from Vista Print...you can design your own. I say... it was pretty easy to do. I loved their features and I loved how quickly they got my order to me. 



But.... there is always a "but" with me... :) 
If you're not a graphics art person .... get some help with it. My cards can't be read all that well. **edited to say...NOT Vista's fault. I loved working with them. I'm just not a graphic designer, that's all. Kudos to Graphic Design folks! 
They can't be read at all by anyone that is COLOR BLIND. 

My sweet son...Looked at my cards and said... " I'm sure they're really nice, Mom. But the background is too busy for me to see what's going on there." 

Live and learn!! My next cards will not be so busy... I've designed a more reader friendly card now. 


On the bright side... I have 500 really cute HANG TAGS FOR ALL MY HANDMADE GOODIES IN THE SHOP! 

Actually it's pretty good timing... 
The Boston Lady recently bought one of my pumpkin banners from the store and she is posting about her Fall decor at her blog-- I've given her a Coupon Code for her readers to use if they purchase from  9th and Denver ... it's 10% off everything in the shop!  Visit her blog...get the code...and go shopping! 


Thanks Boston Lady--- for your bloggy friendship and great advertising! 



Oh give Thanks to the LORD for He is good; His loving-kindness is everlasting.
~Psalm 107:1

You reminded me I have to order a new set of business cards. I got them through an office supply store last time but everyone is saying great stuff about Vista so I'll have to check it out.

Too funny, our timing is the same. I just bought some mailing labels and some notecards for my blog. I should be receiving them soon. I'm thinking of the stamp now....

I can read them fairly well, but your next set will perfect! So happy to put your talents up on my blog! Ann

I made my cards with the same system. I used actual photos of my own and downloaded them. They keep it on my account for future cards.

Oooh, nicely done, missy. You are a real pro now if you have your own cards, I say!
