I have my very own business cards for GlitZeeGlam how exciting?
I know I’ve only been blogging for over a month but I am attending the North West Bloggers meet up in Liverpool on 2nd March which has been organised by the lovely Hannah Rosalie, so I thought business cards would be a great way to promote the blog and get myself known to the blogging world.
I did my research with various different online print companies but I was drawn to 123Print UK because of their prices and their option to design my own business cards.
The design I’ve gone for is simplistic and matches the blog in terms of my header and text colours. 123Print UK does have numerous amounts of templates that are ready for you to input your details but if you want to create something more personal and unique then you can get pretty creative and customise your own design.
The only flaw with custom design is you have to ensure all your text is aligned correctly, I thought I aligned everything but when the cards came my Email section is slightly of key compared to the left hand side of the card. I’m a bit gutted about this but it was my first attempt and isn’t so noticeable unless you take a good close up look.
The delivery service was great, I received emails updating my of the order process and within 4 working days the cards arrived in secure packaging. The delivery service is standard Royal Mail however if you would like them delivered sooner there are other delivery options. The delivery is quite pricey for the standard delivery starting at £4.99, I was lucky enough to get a promotion code for free delivery. The total cost of my business cards was £4.63 for 100.
Having business cards always makes a good first impression with fellow bloggers as well as companies who may also be attending the event you’re going to. After all the blogging industry is massive and you never know who you’re going to brushing shoulders with so it is best to be prepared.
If you are planning on getting yourself some business cards for your own blog/business I would most definitely recommend 123Print UK. They also print a variety of other things including personalised note pads, mugs, letter heads etc. The standard business cards start from as little as £2.39, but remember you would have to add £4.99 delivery charge onto that. Overall, I am very happy!
What do you think of my business cards?
