A hand at design

Tonight I opted to postpone making the left mitten and completing my brownie set. Matt (fiancΓ©) and I have not gotten much sleep the last few nights, so instead I decided to have a quick tinker with a business card design and leave the knitting for tomorrow.

I wanted the back (or front depending on your point of view) to borrow its design from the blog. With some minor sizing changes, I was able to achieve this using an image editing program called Gimp.

Business card back

I’m quite pleased with the finished product. I don’t have all that much experience editing images or photos, but this was easy enough to do. On the other side I’ll have all my details, so that each time I send a product I can include a few cards for clients to pass out if they wish. It’ll also be good to have some to hand out at local craft fairs.

Officeworks does 250 business cards for $39, which is a pretty good deal I think. It would also be great to reformat this image to create postcards with some photos of my products printed on the back. But I’ve got to crawl before I can walk, right?

*If anyone out there wants to give Gimp a try, let me know if you get confused. It can be hard to figure out at first!
