What Kind of Art?

After several gentle prods and nudges from friends and family.....I finally did it!

I had some business cards printed! Now I have a little something to put in packages mailed to customers, something to hand out when I'm asked, "And what is it that you do?".

Of course, I'll still have to explain my art when asked, it seems the majority of people I come in contact with don't understand "Early American Art", go figure! :-)

I used Vista Print, an online printing company. They allow you to upload your own photo, select font and color, and, with some limits, allow you to design your own business card.

And this was a the minimum order.....I think I'll have plenty for awhile!

Have a great weekend....

PS. I had to ask my husband what variety of pumpkins he planted in the garden, and he *thinks* he planted the variety that will eventually turn orange. I'll keep you posted on their progress!

I like your business cards very much. Utterly charming.

Too many? They would make great book marks, don't you think?

Blessings on your pumpkins and your weekend too.

Ow Suzanne, I love , love, love the business cards you created, the are SO YOU!!! When I look at the card, I see your artwork, it's just perfect.

Well, if it makes you feel any better, you wouldn't believe how many people don't understand what I do either...educated, seemingly hip people...some of them look at me like I'm nuts when I say I'm an artist...go figure.

Great cards. Yes, why is it that the minimum to order is so high? I have a box of business cards that I ordered years ago... I'm thinking of using them to wallpaper the kitchen when we remodel in a few months.

It's about time!

I love the design Suzanne and I think you will be re-ordering sooner than you think!

I think your business cards look great. I love how you put the silouette on it. Very Early American! My in-laws have rendez-voued for years, everything has to be pre-1840, so I LOVE Early American anything. Congrats on the business cards and have a great weekend.
