It's not as simple as you think. First, you have to come up with a design that you want to keep for a while. Then choosing the paper, colors and shopping for a printer that will provide the best quality.
When I decided to design my business cards, I knew I wanted something a little edgy but fun. I went with offset printing on Kraft recycle stock. It's been 3 years and I still can't get enough of my business cards.
