Canva. I love Canva. For work. For personal stuff. For family. And recently, when I needed business cards, I decided to try designing my own (using Canva of course)!
Note: The following in an unsolicited review of Canva.com and its printing service.
Now, as you may know, Canva has plenty of design templates to choose from. But in true minimalist fashion, I decided to go very simple and make my own template. Going with the same fonts as the website’s logo (Amatic SC) and header text (Josefin Sans) along with my favorite color (magenta or #ff0099) I began fiddling with some layouts and options until I came up with this:
One of my library school friends (Megan) has a great business card with lines on the back for writing out ideas and conversations she was having with people so they could remember what they wanted to connect about. I loved it, so I used it.
With the finished product decided on all that was left ordering them. But where oh where to get these printed? There are plenty of places online, of course. Then I noticed at the top of the page, right next to the download button, that Canva now offers printing! How convenient…
The options for ordering are straightforward. And the price is great! Of course, when you want double-sided cards you double the price, but in this case it was worth it.
The Finished Product
After the order was placed in took about a week for the business cards to arrive. And I am really happy with the results.
First, the packaging was amazing. But the business cards really blew me away. They are so professional looking. So silky. And really crisp!
How adorable, right? With these business cards I’m ready to network and attend conferences and librarian out in the real world.
