Another thing which is “just better” when going to a blogger conference than any other conference: the business cards. There were a lot of very creative and thoughtful ones, whether they were handmade or printed with one of the many printshops on- and offline. Toni and I also collected as many business cards as possible and had a wonderful hour back at home. We had a look at each of the blogs again, we sorted them by size and talked about which ideas we found the most intriguing. A little gallery of our favourite ones you’ll find below.
There was Sarah from vlogaboo, who uses a photo slide or Sophie from Great Britain. She writes the blog Hidden Blossom and had a massive pile of old (original!) photographs with her. Each of them was embellished and handwritten – what an amazing effort she put in these!
Or Eleni from myparadissi, who first printed her cards and added pastel-coloured paint splatters – thus each card was still a little different from another. Anna from Anna Sterntaler also had taken the time to sit down and make little tags herself – we loved them and took one anyway although we certainly know how to contact Anna ;)!
Design-wise we also really liked the card from currystrumpet, who we are looking forward to meeting again in Amsterdam! Great colours and a really nice motif, be sure to check out her blog, which is also really well designed! Anne’s (Anne’s Kitchen) I loved because of the possibility to choose one from her many motifs (possible because of moo cards) – I love this macaron shot! Emily’s card is just witty, because they taught you different phrases in Irish – she is an expat living in Dublin and writes the blog From China Village.
Last but certainly not least the mini transparent bags from Almalu’s Place. Once taken out you were welcomed by a little splash of cut-out red hearts. And even the final touch of a piece of masking tape was colour-coordinated.
We are sure there are so many more we’ve either missed because we didn’t have the chance to collect them or because I had to choose only a few. What was your favourite business card? Perhaps you are also writing about them on your blog, then please leave a comment! We would love to see them!
Yours, Toni & Thea
