Hi, friends. Well, as promised I'm back with another instalment of Alt Summit SLC 2014 news! Before I went to Alt, I had heard heaps about the business cards. It was a recurring theme, and it seemed that at Alt, the business of business cards was taken very seriously indeed. It makes sense really, when you gather folk with a good eye and a passion for design, that they want to reflect this in the little bit of themselves that they pass onto others. I did have a minor heart attack about making mine look super pretty, but in the end I opted for a simple look, a cute little envelope, closed with a bright sticker. I mean, everyone loves a mini envelope, right?
While I didn't chat to every single person present, those I did speak to gave me their cards - and I loved them all! There was such diversity, and it was really interesting to see how each person had expressed themselves and their brand, blog or business on a card. There was a lot of lovely letterpress, a dash of glitter, some beautiful calligraphy, and much more besides. There were also cards which included a little treat, from glitter letters to a needle and thread and even a full set of recipe cards. You can see below just a small selection of the beautiful business cards doing the rounds at Alt.
And here are the handy links to all the lovely blogs and business pictured above:
