YOU LIKE GRAPHIC DESIGN? SO DO WE.
I arrived from a weeklong trip to Phoenix, Arizona yesterday to be pleasantly surprised by a USPS box waiting at my doorstep. I immediately suspected the contents of the box as I've been anxiously awaiting the arrival of our first run of business cards for the entire month of March. The printer gave me a 3 week lead time, but it took us a whole lot longer than that to come up with a final design that we all really liked. So months of humming and hawwring over the layout, color, cardstock fiber, thickness (and all that jazz) finally came to closure with the arrival of said box. When I laid eyes on these little babies I was flooded with a moment of personal pride paralleled by sheer joy just because they came out so damned good. Of course, I can't claim all the credit for this awesome result- it was undoubtably a joint venture from start to finish, with more than one hand in the proverbial pickle jar. Lucky for me, I have fabulously talented friends, and in this case, one of my friends from high school, Matt Nosbusch just happens to be an incredible graphic designer at Vans and helped me with the streamlining of the card. I'm not gonna lie, these little nuggets weren't cheap, but I feel like the value transcends the cost sheerly due to the unique nature of the card. As you can imagine, the free cards at vista print were my second choice, but ultimately ruled out because they didn't have the best selection of pre-made templates... I was forced to go the other route. And just look how beautiful they are!!!
