I found out a few weeks ago there is a quilting convention, QuiltCon, in Austin (my town) this weekend! Unfortunately, I found out about it so late that all the workshops I was interested in attending were sold out. 🙁 They do have one-day tickets available, so I am going to head downtown Saturday morning to check out the show and try to attend some of the lectures and panels.
I figured I should have some sort of business card on hand, just in case, so I spent some time yesterday putting one together. The actual designing wasn’t that hard, (I put it together in Photoshop Elements) but getting it to print centered on the card was ridiculous! I have a set of Clean Edge Business cards (Avery 8871) that I bought about 10 years ago and never used. No matter what I did, I could not get the image centered!!! And of course the first two sheets I printed had a miss-spelling, Photoshop really needs to add a spell check function!
I wanted to do a double sided card, but the design of these cards make it impossible, which I figured out after making both sides. (The cards peel off the sheet kind of like a sticker.)
What do you think?
Here is the back, which I was not able to print this time around. I will get these professionally printed at some point (on glossy card stock) and will do the front and back. (You can see the spelling error in the text below…)
You can scan the QR code and be taken directly to my website. I love it!
I found a tutorial for a cute little business card holder over at the Crafty Cupboard, and I hope to whip a couple of them out today.
I also added my social media links to the card, I am not sure how necessary that was, because you scan the qr code, and it will take you right to my page where I have all the links.
What do you think? Take them off or leave them on? (I can make the qr code slightly bigger to take their place.)
