Blog Business Cards – Must Have for Bloggers on The Go

Blog Business Cards – Must Have for Bloggers on The GoBlog Business Cards - Must Have for Bloggers on The GoWell this small card can go a long way and for me and it is the number one must have thing for blogging.

Lately bloggers are gaining more and more respect as a media outlet, more and more companies are starting to work with us and value our opinions, and more and more money is being poured into supporting bloggers.

However like with every other business, first impressions count the most… you talk to someone who sells or offers something of interest to you, you would like to approach them to work with you… what better way of making that first impression than by passing over your blog business card?

I remember a blogger meet-up I attended a few months back when I already had Bark Time on a self-hosted domain but I still carried with me my old .worldpress business cards… every time I passed one over I had to explain… “Well, I have moved to a self-hosted site but the old domain will re-direct”… it occurred to me that this really wasn’t ideal. It was the time to get some new cards made.

Luckily once again agreed to create and print some business cards for Bark Time. After my first encounter with them in the summer of last year I was totally over the moon with their service (you can read my previous review here) and I really wanted to know if their outstanding service would be the same the second time around… well… it wasn’t… it was tenfold better!

The first time, I wanted some business cards but I knew in my heart that they aren’t forever… I knew that a domain change would be coming in the near future and that would demand a new card at some point in the future. Now this future is here and this time I knew that whatever we created would stay with me for a long time.

Blog Business Cards from works with you. You give them the outline brief and they create a design based on it. Well, I gave them the brief but once the first draft came back to me I hated it, despite being done exactly to my specification. I worked with Nilesh from their Artwork Team for days; we made countless changes until the card was perfect (in my opinion of course). There were moments when I was ready to quit and simply accept what we already had but I wasn’t letting myself off the hook until I was 100% satisfy with my new business card.

My New Blog Business Cards from arrived securely packed in hard plastic boxes, once I took one into my hand my senses were met with a smooth velvet like paper… pure pleasure to touch and hold. At this moment I knew that my cards were spot on, I really couldn’t ask for anymore; I had something which would help me with those ever so important first impressions.

If you need new business cards for your blog or any other business come to that, then is the way to go. I promise you, you will not be disappointed.

Stress Free Printing – does it really exist?

my business cards from

Lately in line with my #StressLess campaign I am on the lookout for any new ways to reduce my stress and anxiety in everyday life.

Imagine my surprise when asked me to try their services… perfect I thought to myself… but then immediately I started to worry… what is this? Is it just the name of the company and it has nothing to do with a stress free printing… oh hey, as I needed some new business cards for my blog I decided to give it a go.

Have you ever tried to design your own business cards online?

I did… a few times actually but I never managed to finish the process… never. Always it ends up with something going wrong; leaving me in a hysteric state that the whole project will be lost… and in the end it is as I just close the window giving up on the idea. This has happened to me very recently when I received some free business cards as a Klout perk… after spending over an hour on the design of my choosing I gave up… I was beaten by the program and unable to finish the task.

So is any different?

Oh yes!

They are actually very different and totally stress free. They offer to design them for you to your specifications! How cool is that! I was asked to pick the basics… paper type and finish, any graphics I might want and all the information I want to include on my cards. I had pretty good idea what I wanted as I imagined my cards over and over, but I didn’t know they might look so good! did a great job. Not only did my business cards match my stated specification, they also look so much better that I envisioned they would.

Final draft... approved and ready for the print

Once the design was done I received an email asking me to either confirm it or suggest changes. I had one change to my first draft… I wanted a full url of the blog on both sides… few hours later my second corrected design was ready… it was accepted and it went to print.

Few days after this at 8am a lovely courier delivered my business cards… all 500 of them. They come in plastics boxes split to bundles of 100. Every 100 of my brand new shiny business cards sits comfortable in its own plastic tab. They are dry and safe from any dust. I really like it… so thoughtful.

As for the business card itself… they are stunning. The quality of the paper and print is fantastic. They feel very luxurious and I totally love them!

Business card anyone?

So you see sometimes the name is not just a name. really is offering stress free printing service.
I love it and next time I need something designed and printed I am going back to them; there is no question about it.

As an overall service deserves 5/5 stars. They offer a fast and reliable service. They also reply to your queries in a quickly in a friendly and polite manner. They are understanding and efficient. I know that I am not the easiest customer out there… I like having things done my way and a lot of salesmen’s quickly get fed up with me but staff treated me with respect and I really felt that they do actually care.

Thank you for a fantastic service and great product; and thank you Meredith for packing my cards with care.
