Here's an Idea: DIY Business Cards

I reopened my etsy shop oh... seven months ago AND I still don't have proper business cards. I've simply been stamping my logo on plain white cardstock and calling it a day - not the most creative thing in the world (in fact, not creative at all). THEN I saw this and saw the light...


Ruthi Auda is insanely creative, she does art installations for Anthropologie - need I say more?? Ruthi, thanks for giving me a very much needed kick in the arse. I love your DIY business cards and you've inspired me to come up with something a little more inventive than stamping my logo on a white piece of paper (hides in shame).

Glad you guys found this as inspiring as I did! Paper Pastries - unfortunately I'm not that quick, still trying to work it out in my head ;)

Those are awesome! I decided I had to have different cards too & screenprinted mine on some recycled cardstock. They have such a different feel than ones you get from a printer...
