Windows Phone or Business Card: Can't it be both?

since i’ve been focused on windows phone for almost two years now, and plan on continuing that for the foreseeable future, i wanted to make a business card that reflected my current technology passion. with that, i present to you my new windows phone
and the final product, in terrible lighting…(the cards are actually a dark black).
i am one to share my work, however, so if you would like to download this template to use for your own cards, i’ve provided them in two formats: expression design and adobe illustrator. these were originally created in expression design, but the illustrator files i’ve provided do work, but they’re just a little less accommodating (fonts are not editable, for example).
once you’ve downloaded the templates and the software (if you need it), feel free to edit them to your heart’s content. some of you may not have a youtube channel. others may not use linkedin. make it your own. change the colors. definitely change the tag .
finally, you’re going to need a place to print them for a reasonable
price. i’ve shopped around, and i found a print shop local to me that
was willing to print 1000 of these cards on a heavy 16pt card stock,
with a smooth uv coating, and rounded corners for $110. they’re
familiar with the cards, and they will do a phenomenal job for you as
well. you can find yespress online at
. their price was nearly 72% less than every other print shop i talked to, including the online card makers like
($389.70), but their quality was exactly the same as
moo’s rounded corner business cards
if you do make some cards for yourself, please post them in the comments here, so i can see what you’ve made! until next time…
