Video How To: Business Cards for Creatives

In late 2018 I rebranded Paper Heart Design in a day. It was one of those things that just hit me and fell together in the most perfect, creative way. When it came time to order new business cards, I thought long and hard about what I could do to set myself apart from other graphic artists. I decided I was going to make my cards myself and that each one would be slightly different. I loved the idea of a business card that was hand crafted and one of a kind. They would each be a tiny piece of art! Check out this quick video from my YouTube channel on how I make them. More detailed instructions and photos to follow.

A custom stamp was decidedly the best way for me to do this. There are a lot of places online that you can order custom stamps from, but I highly recommend Hello World Paper Co. I sent my design files for production and received these beauties...
