I just can’t get over the winning pieces title! haha! Oh well.. I received today my prizes for the business card raffle draw/contest held by octwelve and sponsored by Uprinting. I’m very happy with the outcome of my design and the quality of Uprinting’s cards.
Now I need to think how to distribute the 250 pieces of them… I hope you got the idea of how I got the title of winning PIECES (*corny* )
Thanks again Uprinting and Octwelve!
One of my friends opened up the importance of business card to be included as one of our swiss knife when going out. As a matter of fact, I gained some business because of referrals. So I decided to have a new one because the previous card I had looks awfully bad! The text looks it was washed away by water. I went to the mall last week but instead of bringing home a card, I cam home with a pissed off feeling. I was just complaining about the quality of the provider’s print because I had already a previous bad experience on that but instead of giving me an alternative or solution (or I could have accepted a smile), the crew answered me back with sarcasm. I do not think I’m that harsh to get that remark from her. Oh well, some crew just doesn’t understand how to get business.
That night, I researched on how to create a printer-friendly design using Photoshop and I came to this and this sites. The only thing you need to know is to set your Resolution to 300 and color mode to CMYK. The latter tutorial explains it well that I was able to create following designs.

Which one do you like best? I’m not going to print them in papers though, greater than 1 colors in a business card is just expensive but I don’t want to throw them just like that. I’ll create a minimalistic version when I’ll have the chance. Still, I’ll appreciate your thoughts
