Homemade Business Cards

I'm shooting a ton of events this week but found that I'm all out of business cards! There's not enough time to get new ones delivered so I thought... why don't I just make my own fun cards at home?
So I hung up a white sheet against the wall and took a few self portraits.
I used double sided matte paper and printed the pictures on one side,
and the name of my website on the back.
I roughly cut around the pictures and placed them between two clear adhesive sheets,
and laminated them!

I then cut them all out,
and poof!

 My new business cards are done.
Now there's a bunch of little Katies running around the world taking pictures!

Wow! how great your own picture can be your own business card i like it .

Clear business cards

cutebun said...

Awesome idea for a business card!

Digi said...

Great idea! Why not send one by mail to someone off your "followers" list and have them do the same, punch a hole in in thier pictures hand and yours and tie them together and pass it on. After awhile it will be mailed back to you and you can have your own chain of friends to greet you at home everyday. Or you could start with Moo and have them do it with thier pets. Your own little circus.
