So my awesome new business cards from Moo arrived today. I first have to start by saying that these business cards are probably the most self indulgent expense for my backpacking trip. Do I need business cards? probably not, but dam are they sexy. here are the reasons I’ve used to justify to myself that having business cards is a good idea.
- Make’s it easier to give my contact info to new friends I meet at hostels.
- Good for networking with people in travel industry
- Help’s promote my blog (see its a business expense)
- Makes me feel important and like I have a purpose, instead of the reality which is that i’m escaping everything to bum around Latin America for 6 months. haha
Plus I’ve always wanted to have business cards, just because they are awesome!
But enough about with my self justifications, I’ll tell you all about these awesome +1 business cards.
I opted to go with the classic stock rounded corner business cards and I have to say that Moo did not disappoint, the card stock is thick and feels nice to touch(That’s what she said). The other great thing about Moo is they give you the option to either choose a pre-existing theme and modify it to suit your needs, or do what I did and create everything from scratch. You also can choose up to 50 different images to have on the back of your business cards, So it feels like you are carrying around a little photo folio with you.
The only thing that I regret is not having a great deal of awesome photos to choose from, I keep thinking of all of the awesome photo opportunities I’m going to have over the next 6 months in Latin America and I’m sure I will have 100x better photos within a couple of months. but alas these had to be ordered now. I will just have to make sure I give out all 200 so I can buy more 😀
Yeah that’s right apparently I’m now a travel writer & photographer,It says so on my business card so it has to be true right?, While I don’t profess to be exceptionally good at either of these things I figured it was a business card I could grow into, haha. Plus as a friend of mine always says:
Fake it till you make it!
So there you have it my own business cards, I’m so excited to have my own collection of business cards and all of the different images on the back just make it feel like I have a big set of trading cards. I can’t wait to start handing them out and leaving them in random places.
So if your interested in ordering you very own awesome business cards I would highly recommend checking out Moo, their quality is superb and they wont break the bank.
