filed away

i got my new business cards/bookmarks in the mail today and, i have to say, i'm as pleased as punch with how they came out!

here's a close-up of the front:

and the back:

i spent an agonizingly long time designing these (reason #3,728 that i could never be a real graphic designer - i'm ridiculously slow and probably too, how shall i put it?, anal retentive about little things), but i thoroughly enjoyed every single second. i really love the classifications on the back - all are dear to my heart, especially 701.15. if i was ever going to get a tattoo, it would be this dewey classification.

i ordered 500 and i have to admit that it's a bit crazy to think that i'll ever need that many, but positive thoughts, right? these will go out in all filed away orders and to anybody who needs a bookmark (i don't know about you, but i have this weird thing about liking the bookmark that's keeping me from losing my place in a story).

*details: i designed these in adobe photoshop elements 9 and printed them through got print, who i've used as a printer with various work projects.


  1. Those are super cute! I got a bunch of personal/blog business cards printed recently and I have no idea what I'm going to do with them ... But it's fun to have! And they were fun to design, too. :)

  2. thanks! i love pottering about in photoshop, hoarding fonts, and collecting digital clip art. you'll definitely find people for your cards! if anything, you could throw them up in the air like confetti and celebrate the fact that you have a cool blog :)
