Blog Business Cards

Please note: Signazon provided me with a set of business cards at no cost. The opinions expressed here are my own.

Interested in creating business cards for your blog? Read on!

Let’s travel back in time for a moment – back to the Princess Half Marathon of 2012. I attended my first ever blogger meet-up hosted by Heather. The bloggers who attended were SO nice and I really enjoyed meeting them. I knew before hand that others would bring business cards (I didn’t have any at the time), so I made up a few “taste of Louisiana” baggies, complete with a completely bootleg cardstock cutout of my blog name/url.

LAME-O. By the way, I’m sorry if you were a recipient of one of those.

Can you imagine the first thing I did when I arrived back home? Yep, I made business cards online.
Prior to creating the business cards, I searched and searched online for ideas of things to include on my card (easier said than done, there’s not a lot of information out there!). :0) It took a while (because I can be incredibly in-decisive about silly things), but I finally figured out a style/design/wording that I loved.

Things I chose to include on my blogger business card:
  • My Name. If you don’t want to divulge your personal info, you don’t have to – have them printed with your first name only, or use your blog’s name instead!
  • Email Address
  • Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, & Pinterest info – no, these are not all necessary, but I decided to include them anyway.
  • Blog URL – that one’s kind of important! :0)
  • Favorite quote, picture, emblem – make it personal!
Since that time, my stock pile of business cards has dwindled….from races to expo meet-ups to giveaway packages, my cards have come in handy more times that I can remember!

Lucky for me, Signazon contacted me and asked if I would be willing to review one of their products. After digging through their website, I stumbled upon their business cards and decided to make a new set of my own!

A few design methods for creating business cards were offered - I chose to use my blog header and design both sides of the business cards on my own. I  then uploaded my designs into their design template. Apart from creating your own design, Signazon also offers several pre-made templates for creating business cards..

How did they turn out?

The design printed perfectly and the cards are beautiful! I absolutely love these cards.

Corner style is an addition option that’s offered – I chose round.

These babies fit perfectly in my business card holder! Perfect for on-the-go at race expos, conferences, and meet-ups!

Are business cards a necessity? No. However, they definitely come in handy when you want to exchange information with a fellow blogger in person, send your follow information along with a giveaway prize, or simply have on hand when the occasion calls. Who knows when you might need to swap Twitter handles with someone – it’s the important things in life, I tell ya! :0)

I cannot say enough good things about Signazon. Their website and design tools are easy to use, their team is prompt to answer questions or help with any needs, and their work is beautiful! Check them out if you have a chance!

  2. Yes, we have business cards thanks to Christine. They do come in handy for giveaways and the times when you are in random places and running becomes a topic of conversation. A card is a simple thing to tote in your handbag!

  9. I, too, never thought about business cards for my blog. But really, I'd probably use them more than my real life business cards? Haha, I love the idea. Especially if there is a MeetUp for Disney Princess (make sure you invite me!!!!), I will want to have some handy!
