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 StressFreePrint.co.uk 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.
StressFreePrint.co.uk 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.
They 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 StressFreePrint.co.uk is the way to go. I promise you, you will not be disappointed.
