I, like many of my friends, am not rolling in the dough. So, I have used my creativity to come up with a far cheaper way of making business cards. I recommend using a paper cutter to do it rather than scissors or your cards will look slightly crooked, like mine. But, that sorta charm is what makes it handmade-little imperfections. I had another picture that I liked, but for some reason,it wouldn't post on here. What's important is that you establish your brand. Make it cute and creative. Look below and you can see where I used scrap book paper and cardstock scrapbook paper to make mine. All I did was cut my scrap book paper to the same size as my 8 x 11.5 paper dimensions, used a table without lines, inserted my information, and made my business cards.
If you can't afford to go to Moo Cards (www.moocards.com), then this is an option. Vista print also has free business cards that you can design. All you have to pay for is the shipping. But I like the charm that comes with handmade. I know I know..sometimes ought to not be handmade. But if you've got the gift, go ahead and DIY.
You can see the front of my cards above and below you can see the four different types of card stock business cards I made out of the paper I had around the house. It's not AWESOME, but it's cute. Put them in your creations and send it out. Slip it in your bag and give out your name. Do what you do best and DIY
