I thought I would show everyone the Singing Dogs' newest Business Cards. Even if I can't hand one out to you I thought it would be nice to see the design online.
Since Cody and Sierra are such big stars it seemed appropriate that they have their own business cards. I also got them made for going to BlogPaws 2013. Having business cards is a must for conferences and I have found them to be really useful for handing out in general when people ask about our dogs. (Yes, I usually start talking about their many TV appearances and their musical talents to anyone that will listen. Who wouldn't?)
I honestly couldn't be happier with the design and how the business cards came out. Like a lot of people nowadays I used a microgig service to get the design made. For $10 bucks it was totally worth it as I couldn't have designed anything that would have looked as good as this card. However, there are a ton of great design elements that I asked for.
Instead of ordering business cards online I decided to use a locally based printing company, Indigo Ink, this time. In the past when I've ordered business cards online they always come out weird or something is usually wrong with the cards. I have had issues where the colors were off, the cut was bad, and paper quality was pretty iffy.
Matt Richardson, the owner of Indigo Ink, was easy to work with and answered all my questions about getting the business cards printed. I am not totally familiar with all the printing jargon but he was pretty helpful and understanding in explaining the terminology. When I went to pick these cards up they were printed how I wanted with vibrant colors, a durable finish, and a nice paper quality and weight. In addition the price was not that much different than ordering online and Indigo Ink got them done in 1-day. I was impressed especially since my order was small by comparison to other printing jobs they get.
I'd recommend Indigo Ink for any small or large printing jobs if you are in the Baltimore-Washington Metro area. I will definitely be using them in the future for any of my printing needs. It is nice not having to deal with mistakes that big online printing companies make and supporting a local business too.
Keep in mind a lot of people at BlogPaws were professional pet bloggers who had graphic designed do their business card design and quality of the cards was top notch. I would say our business cards were on par or even better quality than some cards people were handing out. Having the good quality cards along with a nice design makes a big difference to the person who didn't put in the effort and time.
Bottom line I am definitely pleased with how these business cards came out. Have an opinion about them? Leave a comment below and let us know.
