Blogger Business Cards

Next Wednesday morning, far before my normal waking time, I’ll be leaving on a jet plane, and I don’t know when I’ll be back again.  Just kidding.  I’ll be back on Sunday.

I’m heading to SNAP! conference in Salt Lake City.  It’s a meeting of the creative blogger minds.  There will be squealing (I don’t squeal, remember?), hugging (I’m not really a hugger, but I put that aside at these types of events), and bloggers introducing themselves by their name and blog name (Hi, I’m Chelsea from Two Twenty One).

With blog conferences comes blogger business cards.  Bloggers swap these puppies like nobody’s business.  Showing up to a blog conference without business cards is like showing up to a nudist community fully-clothed.

I changed up my blogger business cards from last year with the help of my awesome blog friend, Erin.  This time around we added all of my social media contact information.  We also added my beautiful mug so people are more likely to remember me.  (I’ll let you know if this tactic works.)  Erin also put my logo on both sides of the card, which is a great idea because no matter what side people look at they see my logo.  It’s all “Two Twenty One, in yo face!”

If you ever find yourself needing blogger business cards I recommend including the following:
• your name
• name of your blog/blog logo
• blog URL
• your email address
• social media contact information (facebook, pinterest, twitter, instagram, google+)
• photo of yourself (optional)
• phone number (optional)
• QR code (optional)

Now this may seem like common sense, but don’t copy other bloggers’ business card designs– especially if they’re in the same niche as you.  I know business cards aren’t copyrighted and all that jazz, but it’s not the best idea to have your business card look like someone else’s.  Set yourselves apart, people.

I liked how my old business cards turned out, so I went back to Vistaprint to have them printed.  I went with premium matte stock again.  It has a good weight to it– no one likes a flimsy business card.  The 250 business cards set me back $33 (that includes shipping), which isn’t too bad.

I’m using my Baffin Bags blogger business card holder again this year.  Because, remember, rubber bands aren’t the classiest method of containing your cards inside your blogger bag

And you better believe I’m bringing a binder ring and a hole punch to organize all the other bloggers’ business cards.  People were jealous of this system at Haven.

    I love that system to organize business cards or any cards…even the swipe cards on my key chain would be much better on a separate holder like you have. Great post for blogging business cards!

    Such pretty cards! I’m tired of the look of mine–I ordered them like 4 logo changes ago and didn’t really make them all that cute, just basic info–but I’m too cheap to just toss out like 200 cards and start fresh. Such is life. I guess I need to meet like 200 people who want an ugly old business card so I can start from scratch :-)

    I wish my job would allow for such cute cards. While I have not attended a blog conference and it would be sad to mess up any pretty card, one of the best pieces of advise I got for a conference was to write your connection or how you met or something else on the back of the cards that you collect. This is so in 3 months when you are going back through or trying to remember who you talked to about their washi tape hookup, you have that written down. I do it at the end of each day and it has been a great way to keep up with people.

    I love the cards! They are great. I’m a new blogger, in my first year, so no SNAP or bloggy biz cards. I only have mommy cards :( But I definitely will be planning to have some in the near future. Have fun at SNAP and I’ll be anxiously awaiting your return to my blog feed…

    Generally, A business card is a powerful source of marketing and if it is creative, it gets quick attention of people. So, create your best business cards according to the theme of your business and move your first step towards success.
