I am dilemma-ing over business cards. At the moment when I am meeting people to talk about the art playground, I don’t have anything official to give them. I’m planning to make a business to business flyer, almost a 1 page business plan, so that they can see what I’m rambling on about, have some contact details and it makes me seem a bit more legit. In the meantime, I have drafted some free (apart from about £4 p&p) business cards from vistaprint. Even though the cheapest p&p option says up to 14 days, in my experience they arrive within 3 or 4 days anyway.
The dilemma is, get some business cards with a gmail email address on and without art playground branding (as it’s still tbc) or wait until I have a proper christina@artplayground email address and branding and in the meantime continue scribbling on bits of notepaper as I meet people. The OCD lover of clear branding in me is resisting the vistaprint cards, but they are free. I also judge businesses that have a gmail or yahoo as their official business email, but then most people are not as judgemental about stupid things as I am, so it probably doesn’t matter in the real world. I should probably just get over it and order them.
