Which FRIDAY THE 13TH movie do you most prefer to watch on Friday the 13th?:
Long time coming, I should have gotten off my lazy @ss to do this quite awhile ago but now the time is finally here.
Gettin' some motherfuckin' business cards for myself made!
Pretty much done with the designs, and when I can afford the costs I'll have them printed out. I wanted 3 different types of cards, each one serving a different purpose and decided individually they should possess a distinct flavor all unto themselves. Unique attributes like different card size, gloss vs. matte finish, alternate front/back sides, all of these things taken into consideration. And I'll be using a couple different printing services which can accommodate these features for a particular card.
STYLE - Black Ellipse Edge
STYLE - Black Splatter Edge (A)
STYLE - Black Splatter Edge (B)
SIZE - 3½" x 2"
PRINTING SERVICE - VistaPrint
VistaPrint Seems like the ideal service to use for the standard 3½" x 2" card size, and cost-affordable since they regularly offer sales on their products via special %-off codes. Batch of 100 for $16.99 and even less than that using the promo code. Though it seems they don't offer alternate images for either front or back sides, hm.....oh well.
Still deciding on which style to use, the nice clean elliptical black edge or one of the splattered edges?
SIZE - 3.3" x 2.16"
PRINTING SERVICE - MOO
I'll be going with MOO for these since they do offer alternating image designs for the back side of their cards, back only though not front. It's perfect for displaying various pumpkin carving works of mine spread across their batch amount. Normally $19.99 for 50 cards, a little pricier than VistaPrint, but for the alternate back designs...worth it.
Their standard card dimensions are a little different from the normal 3½" x 2" size, which I had initially designed the front side to be. They're a bit shorter lengthwise and slightly taller, so I had to adjust things accordingly. But a simple task to be sure.
SIZE - 2¾" x 1.10"
PRINTING SERVICE - MOO
No alternate styles or anything, this one's pretty simple & straightforward.
I wanted to mix it up a bit from the other 2 cards and thought it would be cool to utilize MOO's MiniCard size option, I think it suits the design well. For the same price as their normal sized cards I get 100 of these ones.
Thinking about creating a few more designs, for a 4th card I'd probably go with the square shape from MOO.
