Although I fully support the creative geniuses at Blurb.com and their commitment to helping writers I do think that if you ever feel the need to have a company print anything for you, you should choose Paper ChasePress.
They are amazing at what they do.
Nicole Katz, owner of Paper Chase Press in Hollywood, reports that many of her clients are dropping job titles and addresses, opting instead for cards with just their name, telephone number and–because it is 2014–social media handle. In other words, the contemporary equivalent of something like this.
Make an appointment at Paper Chase’s bright storefront to get colorful, cool cards for as little as $.40 each. Bring in a pdf of your design (either self-designed or laid out by a pro like James Brundage, who works with the creative services department). Select your paper (we like the matte), size and color (definitely go for edges “gilded” in hot hues like magenta, turquoise or red). And then give the thumbs-up after reviewing a proof with an in-house designer.
Just remember Emily Post’s edict on the matter: “A fantastic or garish note…betrays a lack of taste in the owner of the card.”
