2011 Business Cards

My new 2011 Business Cards

For 2011, me and graphic designer Nubby Twiglet decided to revamp my business cards for a more upscale presentation. For years I had used cards with images on them to promote myself, but I found that by the time I had given away a stack of cards that I had grown a little tired of presenting the same image over and over. Similarly, I also found that the image on the cards was not always appropriate to all the different types of customers I deal with. The decision was made to create a card with no image, one with a a bit of mystery that would push recipients to my site to see my work, rather than having them make a snap judgement based on one image. Nubby had been suggesting for some time that I consider a blind embossed card with a much thicker stock, and I was quickly hooked on the idea ultimately Nubby presented me with a design using my logo as a pattern of blind embossed elements that immediately caught my eye. I had the final cards produced by Taste of Ink and am very happy with both the quality and overall impressive feel of the cards.

  1. Interesting idea to not include a photo, I like it. They look gorgeous, I can imagine they have a great feel as well. Next time I’m in Buffalo I’ll look you up, I’d like one myself!

    1. Thanks

      I have been feeling recently that going sans image keeps the cards much more timely and fresh feeling, while pushing contacts to the website rather than having a dated card image be their first impression. Overall I am happy as I wanted something more up-scale and elegant – which is what i got.
