Paige’s New Business Cards

A Common Name, Business Card

I received my first business cards today and they aren’t exactly what I was aiming for, but I’m pretty happy with how they turned out. The original idea was to have a blind deboss on white cotton paper with no ink. Unfortunately, even though I asked the printer, the type at the bottom was too small to read once they were creating the first run of cards. I grudgingly agreed to adding a run of 30% black ink over the cards to help with legibility. The cards are definitely legible, yay. I’m digging my logo on there!

Despite my slight printing snafu, I’m really happy with the printer, Taste of Ink. Ask them for a printing sample, they have some nice stuff.
