Recent Print Projects

I've been busy with print projects lately, so I thought I'd share some of them here so you can see what I'm doing when I'm not playing with my kids or blogging. This week's round-up is a selection of business cards and promotional materials I've done recently.

First up, a new business card for the creative ladies at Crave Interiors. For their cards, I went with clean lines to reflect their crisp, fresh aesthetic. These cards have a matte finish, which is a sophisticated alternative to traditional glossy cards. The Crave team headed off to market recently and I can't wait to see what they're going to do next.

Next up is a business card for Capital Fund Law Group. I'm a huge fan of matte finish; so this one got the same treatment. This card is single-sided with a subtle watermark in the corner to reflect the logo. I also did a coordinating letterhead and email signature for him, too. I'm always amazed at how much information can fit on one tiny piece of paper. (And just FYI, I blurred part of his email address above, since it's not listed on his website.)

Here's a custom thank you note I designed for Dr. Jordon Green. On the inside, there's a little message thanking patients for referring friends and family to the office. I wish I could say I designed the logo, because it's awesome…but I didn't. I've been taking on quite a few medical and dental projects lately. I love it. And it's always a good reminder to floss. :)

And last, here's a little collection of promotional goodies I put together for my most recent trip to Alt Summit. I wasn't sure what I'd do with the roll labels when I ordered them, but I've always wanted them. And guess what? I use them for everything. I put them on the back of the mini notepads I made to give out with my business cards. I put them on the back of the merchandise in my etsy shop; and I use them for return address stickers on my shipments. They're perfect and versatile and I love them. And don't even get me started on those customized golf pencils. In my book tiny = cute, so these babies are clear winners.

And now I have a confession: I have four different sets of business cards. Four. It's practically a lifetime supply of business cards. But in my line of work, having an excessive amount of business cards is probably normal. Right? Of the four designs, these are my favorites. They're a silk laminated card with a spot UV treatment. It's kind of hard to see the spot uv in this photo, but take a look here to see the shiny hearts on the back. And the silk lamination adds a great, velvety smooth feel to the cards. Next time I see you, just ask and I'll let you stroke one of my business cards. You know you want to.

Well, that's it for this week's show and tell. But that didn't even make a dent in the pile sitting on my desk. So stay tuned. I'll be back later to geek out over more paper goods.
