Of course printing them in a lithography company or in some professional printers are the best way to get some really pro business cards. But when we still can’t afford that what we can do is making them ourselves and printing them the best we can.

I made mine in Photoshop and Illustrator because I know those apps from my profession but I know many of you use Picmonkey or other online great apps so you definitely can have your cool business cards.

The first thing you need is defining your style. If you already have you blog name as a logo and you brand colors you have half way done!. Then you design your card on one of those apps the way you like and always thinking of how people would see it. Is it easy to understand? Is it easy to read? Because we want people to keep our cards and remember us, right?

I made my cards design based on my blog new look. I defined my colors as gray, pink and green and my blog name is my logo. Then I just played with my elements. I want people to recognize me, if they have my card and see my blog they will remember and of course if they have seen my blog and then they see my card, they will again remember me! That’s how branding works. The constancy is the key.

Then I placed as many as I could in Illustrator {you can use apps like PowerPoint or publisher if you don’t know illustrator} so I could print them. In my case I made my cards both sides so I made sure to have exactly the same pattern in both pages and well centered so the printed result matches.

I have an Epson Stylus printer, so I highly recommend for this kind of projects, using Epson high quality mate cardstock or paper. There are special papers for HP too.  These kind of paper has special coats that make the ink stick and not being too absorbed by the paper and the result is a bright and sharp printed images.

I sent them to the printer in the best quality the printer has then I cut them and tadaaaaa I have my new cute business cards!!!

    Thanks for the great tips! Thanks for sharing at The Weekend Retreat, hope to see you back on Thursday night!

  4. Oh my gosh, they are lovely! You did a great job. I really want to get an Epson Stylus printer now. I’ve really been wanting to. Are there different models? How large a paper size can they print to, because I have some prints I designed that I’d love to print onto thick matte paper so that I can frame and hang them!

    See you on the next Funday Monday!

    I have Photoshop and had never thought of using it to make my business cards-thank you for the idea! I’ll work on it the next few days, and if I can figure out how I’ll show you the results 😀 Also, even though I am not Hispanic, I felt it was very nice that you added that touch to your blog. BTW, I found this link on Pinterest.

Leave me your lovely thoughts!
