When Suzie blogged about her gorgeous new business cards the other day I remebered I had totally forgotten to mention mine! In fact I'd forgotten about them altogether! I ordered them just before Fashion Week, and would definitely recommend getting some if you're looking to take photos of the outside world.

When I've asked people if I can take photos of their shop/stall/selves almost the first thing they ask, understandably, is 'Where is this photo going? Do you have a business card?' It feels so much more professional to say 'Why of course, here you go!' Than 'Errr, no... sorry... I can scribble my URL on a piece of paper though...?'

I ummed and ahhhed about putting a photo of myself on my business card, but in the end I figured if someone didn't like seeing my face on my business card, they probably wouldn't like my blog either! So I went for it! The photo, incidentally, is from an outfit post about a year ago here.

I remember that picture and I love it! Your cards are so pretty. I totally agree that it's much more professional to have cards, although I don't have any for my not-so-new-anymore blog - living in Bangladesh I haven't actually needed them.

These are darling! I've always liked simple type layouts for business cards.

These are so cute. I like how simple and elegant these are! This is actually a really good idea though I don't take enough pictures of other people/their stuff to really need cards....
