You’ve heard it before, the alt summit business card exchange is just one of the special things that happens when you head out west. Along with the recent redesign I designed my very first professional business cards just in time. Previously I was using thin rolodex paper and a truly homemade stamp — I was ready for the upgrade! Once the design was complete, I sent my cards off to Cotton Paperie to get letterpressed. They definitely didn’t disappoint. The quality was superb, and the price was much lower than other places I received quotes from. I really loved that they had an instant quote available too — on my tight timeline, that set them apart from the rest! Last-minute I also decided to create some hand lettered postcards to give as another takeaway at the conference. Along with some velum envelopes and custom stickers, I was all set.
I’m seriously in love with my cards — is that weird to say? I just really enjoy letterpress, and I’ve been having so much fun playing with my new branding and spreading it across all aspects of Pinegate Road. I think I’m just proud to have pulled this off honestly. A year ago I would have never imagined to be at the place I am now with this blog and my career—I don’t think we give ourselves enough credit sometimes for those little accomplishments. I think it’s in good practice to sit back and be proud of them. I’m going to relish for a while, excuse me.
Alright, that’s enough of that! On to my favorite alt summit business cards. I had a very hard time narrowing my favorites, so I decided to categorize them into three groups. I hope you get the chance to take a look through all the wonderful ladies behind the cards!
Last but not least, after all this Alt exchange excitement, I wanted to bring a little Alt to those of who you didn’t have the chance to make it out to Salt Lake this year. I’m going to send out five hand lettered postcards to you! The first five readers that email me their address with the subject line ‘postcard’ will get a special note from me in the mail sometime soon. So, email away and I hope you enjoyed all the lovely business cards I landed at Alt Summit!
