Pink and Gold Business Cards

I have my new business cards, just in the nick of time for Alt Summit! My old cards were cute, but it was time for something new.

Shiny gold foil printing on thick pink card stock. I designed them, then redesigned them, then overdesigned them, and in the end I redid the whole thing and ended up with this simple layout. I had them printed by Eagle Printing, here in Chicago.

And that’s my new logo on the cards. I think it’s a nice update, and not a radical departure from the logo I’ve had for the first five years. The cards will match the blog once I launch the redesign next month.

p.s. I rounded up 10 of my favorite business card designs right over here.

    Nice work, and combination of colors. The foiling gives it a ‘de-bossed’ look as well.

    I got married this past October and pink and gold were the colors I used throughout (who says I have to use brown and green because it’s the fall?!). Absolutely gorgeous combination. Always classy and just a bit feminine and sweet.
