New Year, New Stationary

When it comes to business cards, sometimes I make them myself and other times I order them. My last "batch" was ordered from Colorful Images. I liked the fact that these were double-sided, and had matching stickers which I ordered too for use on the tops of jewelry boxes or to seal gift bags. These have served me well, however I am running low AND they were printed before I had my Etsy site. So, I've been having to neatly write my website on them.

Well, ever since I ordered from Colorful Images I get a catalog from them about once a month. Even though the merchandise changes very little from catalog to catalog, I am lucky I am one of those anal people who always look through each and every piece of mail. Imagine, to my surprise after flipping through a few pages yesterday, a new line of peacock products! Oh I am so excited! It's as if the universe knew I was in need of new business stationary! I am planning on ordering the business cards below - I like how they are an unusual 2.5 x 2.5 inch square shape! I am also planning on ordering the matching packaging/mailing labels, matching stickers (like before), and then probably some matching personalized note cards. An investment well worth making to build my "brand".

I love that square shaped business card. I will have to check on these as I've been out of business cards for months. Thanks, Heather.

Perfect for you!
I discovered a local girl, Rethink Ink Designs, at our local market. She sells on Etsy and uses recycled paper and soy inks. She is in the process of slowly designing new cards for me revamping the key logo I have. They are simpler and more me than the Vistaprint ones. I had her make 1/4 size of a business card that is a litle tag for smaller necklaces and bracelets. And larger half sized square ones for bigger pieces so that I can give out my contact info and still look like me!
You have succeeded in a lasting brand image! I was shopping on Etsy last night and stumbled on some vintage teardrop shaped cabs with decals of peacocks on them and had them in my cart thinking of you! LOL! (Don't worry, I didn't buy them, they are still there for you to discover!)
Enjoy the day!
