Business Cards From GotPrint.com

I'm so super excited to share with you guys the business cards I designed for the website! My mom has been on me since day one to get some made because almost every time I go out I always have someone who chats me up about my nails. I've always ignored her and was like , eh I don't need no stinkin cards for my site, it's not a business therefore I don't need business cards!! 

Well months later here I am sitting on a mountain of business cards and I could not be happier! The main reason I decided to bite the bullet and get some cards was due to the fact that yours truly is going to Las Vegas at the end of the month To COSMOPROF!!  For those of you who aren't aware of what Cosmoprof is , it's basically a Cosmetic Beauty Trade Show. It's not open to the general public and I'm still in awe that I was granted a press pass to attend this Show. So Besides being more than thrilled to attend this show I'm super excited because there are approx 15 other bloggers that are going and I'll get to meet them!! okay I'm practically bouncing up and down here with excitement. Here is a LIST that Krystal from Polish Galore has put together of the other bloggers attending.  

I had to talk my husband into going out to Vegas with me because believe it or not the Hubs did not want to go , but after a week of nagging and begging he caved in. So I'm more than thrilled to be going to Vegas for the first time and to make this trip into a week long vacay!! Okay is it the end of the month yet? Cause I'm now officially ready to go since I now have my Business Cards in hand!

So if you are looking to get some cards made I highly recommend that you check out GotPrint. I've checked out like every possible printing company online and this was the best deal I found and honestly I thought it was too good to be true, but I still went with it. I got 5,000 cards , 16pt card stock (the common you see out there is 13pt, the higher the number the thicker/more expensive) Full Color Front and Back,  for under $61.00 and that included the shipping! Okay why did I get so many, well because it was cheap! I've looked at other sites which I won't name but for the 60 bucks I paid for the same quality card I got I'd only get approx 150 cards so why wouldn't I get a ton of cards?  You can get a lot less for example if I got 500 it would have cost me around $30.00 w/shipping. So for double the money you get 10 times the cards!

The colors and quality on these is so much more than I was expecting!
I gotta get some cards made for my "real job" I will for sure go back to GotPrint for that!


Okay this is box 1 of 2, I will never ever put a dent in this box let alone the second one, but for the price I could not resist ! 

I grabbed a random business card off my desk, here I'm applying the same pressure. My card is on the right. It's a super high quality thick card!

I decided to go with a matte finish on the front and a shiny surface on the back.
Bonus Pic: Okay so I couldn't leave the manicure alone from yesterday I added Psychedelic sunshine on top of it and I gotta say i'm loving it 100% more. The formula on this was super thick and almost gooey. It really brought the whole manicure together for me.

  3. Wow! Your cards are great!!! I never thought anyone would ask me about my nails, but it happens a lot. Of course, I'm working at different stores and businesses every day too. And, you did great with designing this. Yes! Hand them out like crazy at the show in Vegas. :) And have tons of fun. I would love to be there too. Maybe next year.

    Awesome spiced up manicure too.

  5. Great cards and do really like the heavy card stock they are on. You will have a great time at CosmoProf....wish I could go. Vegas I can leave alone - but I really would love to attend the convention/conference. Like the coat of yellow goopy glitter over your mermaid tails!

  7. Thanks Memee. i can't believe i didn't think to layer a glitter like this right away, it really pulled it together, reminds me of those sparkly fishing gummy lure thinges. I can't wait to attend CosmoProf. I've been to several "work-related" tool Shows and i can't believe i will be going to a show that i'm actually interested in. Vegas seems great but i'm not into nightlife/gambling/whatever vegas stands for. Just looking forward to checking out some different shopping joints.

  9. Thanks! i love chatting to people about nails because it puts a smile on my face when i impart some nail knowledge to them. I'm glad you like the design, i kept putting off getting cards because i couldn't decide on the design. So I'm relieved that they turned out so great. Maybe we'll meet up at some other show sometime in the future : ) !
