Beautiful business cards, expensive procrastination [time spent browsing and dreaming vs working] or essential to your business? I’m going for the latter! After returning to freelancing this month after three years of full-time trend forecasting, I seem to have lost all my business cards from all those prior years of freelancing [seven to be precise] – oh well, new year, new start!
I have my eyes on these beauties from my favourite San Francisco based stationary brand Rifle Paper Co. Known for their whimsical illustrations in their distinctive style and vintage colour palette, you can have your ‘calling cards’ customised in your likeness and hand lettered in your name. Just choose your ‘head’ from a drop down menu and off you go! Cards start from $50 for 25.
I wish my head was a little more exciting though, it would probably be 11… Which would you be?
