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.
