If you read the blog on the reg (p.s. THANKS for that, love you all!), you probably know that I recently attended the RewardStyle blogger conference aka #rStheCon in Dallas, TX. While there, I collected business cards like it was nobodies business, literally– I came home with enough to go out & buy a full blown Rolodex & fill it up completely. Speaking of, I’m actually looking for a Rolodex on Amazon as we speak. Organization is my life.
Back to the point- being a blog & graphic designer for my company Blog-Doo, I don’t just look at a business card & see a name/number/website. I study the design, the thickness of the paper, the shade of white, whether it’s matte or glossy, & any other design element that stands out to me.
Ever seen American Psycho? You know his obsession with business cards? Yea, that’s me in a nutshell (strictly in regards to biz cards!!!).
So anyways, the hot trend that caught my eye was colored borders of business cards. Super bright pinks, matte pastels, & my fave- metallics. Since I already have all my cards printed, I decided to DIY ’em up w/ a little midas touch. It was a superrrr simple project, & now my cards are all sparkly and beautiful.
I love love love ’em, & hope you do too ;)!! Enjoy.
++ Supplies: your business cards, spray paint of your liking, rubberbands or hair ties.
++ The How-To: Tie off your cards with rubberbands super duper tight lengthwise & spray around all sides with your spray paint. Let dry. Now, switch the rubberbands so they are tied around the cards in the opposite direction & spray the edges again with spray paint. Let dry, remove the rubberbands, & voilà– mission complete.
