Rounded Corner Business Cards = 20% More Fun!

My new business cards looking like a game of Memory.

First time printing with overnightprints.com and I'm very happy with them. Good quality paper and the shipping was fast. Never had anything done with rounded corners before- my type is a little bit close to the edge and its driving me crazy- although I'm sure I'm the only one thinking about it.

This week is all about printing my portfolio and sucking up all the inks in my printer. Surtex is this Sunday...am I ready?!?

they look great! I was thinking about using them next time I get cards printed. I usually use vista prints but I heard good things about overnight prints

I love rounded corners (and I don't think your type is too close to the edge). Good luck :)

I love the cards! They look GREAT! I think I will have to look into Overnight Prints for my next order! I like how they look with rounded corners- I ran out of business cards and ended up using postcards for my show in Tokyo - they were a hit, so I guess it was o.k. :) Good Luck at the show :)

Kendall @ Entertaining Life said...

These are so cute! I am considering doing the same rounded corners. I am glad to hear you're satisfied with overnight...I can't decide who to use!

May I asked what program you designed them in? I have photoshop in illustrator...is one better than the other? Thanks for any advice/direction you can give!

Chickengirl said...

Hi Kendall, thanks-I mostly use Illustrator and I love it! :-)
