Christmas Fair daily countdown tip
It's business card time
Having some business cards for your stall is essential. You can have them on your stand for people to pick up and contact you if they want to think about a purchase, plus you can pop them in bags when people buy something, just so they remember who you are.
To help you on your way, we've picked some little nuggets of advice to creating the perfect business card.
Include only essential informationBusiness cards are tiny, so avoid the temptation to add oodles of information. Pretty much everyone uses the internet these days, so you can happily get away with just including your business name, a few words to summarise what you do, your email and the URL of your Etsy shop.
Keep type readablePick a clean, clear font and keep the type size reasonably large; the school of thought is no smaller than 8pt. The best combination is dark type on a white background. If you cannot live without your colour, just ensure that the text colour and background colour are complete opposite.
Say it with picturesUse your cards as an excuse to show off your products. Most companies allow for 2-sided printing, so use one for your details and the other for a photo. Think of the picture side like a book cover.
MOO offers something they call Printfinity, which enables you to alter the outside image on your cards. So if you can't decide what to show, this might be a good option.
