Creating products that you think people will want to buy and setting up an online store never seemed like that daunting of tasks to me when I first decided on setting up my Etsy store. Surprisingly, the part that I struggled with most when getting started was the design of my business cards! It wasn’t even something I considered when first putting my shop idea into motion. Who needs business cards for a store where you don’t physically ever talk to anyone? Boy was I a fool! Craft fairs, blogger events, shipping out products, and even meeting people in daily life – all these situations are perfect opportunities to pass out cards and leave a lasting reminder of your business! I printed my first set of business cards at MOO and I loved how they turned out, but after finding these adorable ideas for handmade cards I am going to start working on some for when my first batch runs out. Check out these cute handmade business card ideas, maybe they’ll inspire you too!
