After starting and scrapping three different business card designs on Vistaprints, I decided to hire a professional. Sounds expensive, right? But no, a mere $15 on an Etsy design shop got me a fully designed ready to upload and print business card from a professional in the design business for over eighteen years. Her website and design examples rocked my socks off. Yay!
I like simple designs and already have a logo which I use on my website and would use on my blog…if I were more tech savvy. My criteria to the designer: My logo front and center with my tagline below. Add my website and email, please.
I decided not to include my phone number for privacy reasons.
I was on the fence about adding the genre and types of work I write. After conversing with the designer via e-mail we decided to leave it off. My logo speaks to my avocation and the tagline hints at the types of work I write. (Words excite. Imagination thrills. – tells someone I don’t write technical manuals. No?)
Below are two final options. Sorry, the second one is in pdf format. You’ll have to click on the link to see it. PLEASE, tell me what you think. Anything missing? Too drab? Hate it? Love it? Option one or two?
