Blogger Business Cards

April 1, 2009 / Social Media / 17 Comments

Just printed 200 business cards for my blog. I’m pretty happy with how it turned out! Thanks to Claudia’s recommendation, I printed 200 cards at Tommy Prints for just S$24 – about 17 US dollars – with matte lamination. What a steal!

Why would bloggers need business cards?!

For me, I attend quite a few local social media events not only as a corporate representative, but also as a blogger. However, handing out my corporate card instantly brands me as a corporate representative. So people find it difficult to reconcile between Ivy the blogger and Ivy the corporate communications executive from that telco with the iPhone. And of course, it doesn’t help that my blog’s name is unpronounciable to most. (It’s NAAN-YAH-TAY, people.) So a blogger card is exactly what I need to let people know that I too am a blogger.

As for you? I suggest you read Claudia’s entry on why bloggers should have name cards, ’cause I can’t top that entry. 😛

Get your own Nanyate?! business card!

For those of you who live in Singapore, you can get one at the next social media event or we could just meet up for coffee. For those of you who live in the rest of the world, just e-mail me your mailing address! 🙂

Dear Readers, do you think bloggers need business cards? Do you think you need business cards? Why or why not?
