When I remembered and contacted them on Twitter, they responded promptly. I decided to go with the option of them designing my card - which cost N2500, if I remember correctly. You can design it yourself and upload it for printing. I just chose the other option because I think I lack design skills :-|
I sent them a few photos and my information and these were some of the designs they came up with.
I decided to go with a square card because I think it's different from the norm, and it kinda fits my personal style. Some of my family/friends were concerned that it might not fit in a conventional business card case. They have a point, but I think a square card would make the average person do a double-take, since it's different. That being said, if you're in a serious business or profession, please go with the usual rectangular shape.
I kinda decided on this photo above eventually because of the color splash effect. Again, it's quirky and different, right? My family/friends liked it too but they all had one issue - "Berry why aren't you smiling?" They said the card made me look somewhat intimidating, instead of approachable. I personally like the photo cos it shows my natural hair, my quirky side, and that I'm African. But I agreed that it should be a smiling photo.
I'm quite happy with the cards. I'm not 100% ecstatic because it was only after I got them that I noticed the circle on the back of the card was not centered. I'm not sure how everyone of us missed that. Ah well. There's always next time aye?
I gave out a few of them this weekend at the Beauty in Lagos Beauty Party on Sunday. It felt good, I must say. I even put it on Snapchat - are you following me yet?
