A Different Look

I'm always checking out business cards when I'm at craft fairs.  A card's purpose is simply to share information, but I like the ones that are a little bit different.  It could be a special font or distinctive shape that catches my eye.

My business cards change almost every year.  I've had my current branding for about a year.  That design is mostly for my Etsy shop, but I wanted something new for the business cards that I hand out in public.

I chose to use the Polaroid design that you see in my blog header for the front side of the card.  The back side has my name and website.  Clean and simple.  For the glossy look, I just covered the cardstock with clear shelf liner (found at Walmart).  There's a lot of cutting involved, but I think it's worth it.

If a business card is unique, are you more likely to remember the person or business?
