I’m officially headed to Alt today, (whoop!) and as a friendly reminder, this DIY’er always welcomes a wish of luck and a prayer or two. While I’m plane hopping and fighting off butterflies, I’ve left you with the unveil of what I’ve deemed my new Blood, Sweat, & Tears business card packaging. My husband would be very happy to vouch for this new title as well…

The card was designed by me and letterpressed by the ever-amazing folks behind Eat Sleep Ride Print. We used clear business cards envelopes to enclose the card, a swirl of twine (my go-to item as you know), a package of glitter (my number two go-to item), and a little wooden clothespin to emphasize pulling yourself together. Okay, that last part isn’t true, I just thought they were cute so I threw them in there. Don’t judge me.

    Sometimes I think I’m the only person in the world that doesn’t like glitter. I like to see it, sure. Super pretty. But I hate dealing with it! You’re so brave to handle so much glitter and not get injured by the stuff! ha.

    It is a fine summer morning and you are in a happy mood. You have just returned from a long and important overseas business trip and you have attended a number of seminars and exhibitions. As you sit down with a cup of coffee your secretary enters and hands you a stiff piece of rectangular paper. She announces that a well-dressed man had come to meet you regarding an important business deal and had left behind his business card. As you glance through the card, you are impressed by the quality of the board used to make the card. What strikes you is the superb color combination the logo and the lettering of the card uses. Your eyes are riveted to the same and you just cannot take them away..

    There are some folks who cram up their business cards with all the information it can hold. This is not done, for a business card is business card and not sales literature. Let the additional info be there on your sales literature and keep the business card as simple as possible. This will ensure that the card will be able to pass across the information it was supposed to convey immediately. Would you rather want that the CEO of a reputed company scanned all through your business card just to find your contact information? A proper business card design should have as much `white space as possible on it. People should be able to access the necessary information immediately.;

    Full color cards, or cards that use many colors, are printed on sheetfed presses as well; however, they use the CMYK (cyan, magenta, yellow, and black) four-color printing process. Screens of each color overprinted on one another create a wide gamut of color. The downside to this printing method is that screened colors if examined closely will reveal tiny dots, whereas spot color cards are printed solid in most cases. Spot colors should be used for simple cards with line art or non-black type that is smaller than 5 points.’
