While I’m running around Alt this week passing out Lovely Indeed’s new business cards, I thought I’d give you all a little peek as well! Rachel from Lupa & Pepi designed another set of business cards for me this year, and I love ’em so much I’m wiggling my toes.
If you remember last year’s cards, these probably look a little familiar. But what we didn’t have last year was — oh, I dunno — gold foil! I’m seriously so pumped about the foil embossing with the letterpress I feel like it’s Christmas all over again. Gold has become such a staple around here I thought it would be cool to include some on the cards, so Rachel made it happen. And I love that the little heart still has a pop of color on the front.
On the backside, Rachel actually had a kind of crazy idea that I ended up loving and going for. Because the card is so simple and clean, she suggested just including my logo, name, and the @lovelyindeed handle. Since I recently switched all of my social media over to the same username, I kind of thought it was cool. And I know it’s a bit of a risk, not including a web address or an email address, but I kind of love it! It feels different and fun, and hopefully people will know that there are a million ways to find me at @lovelyindeed or lovelyindeed.com. In any case, it was a decision that I’m glad I made, and I loved Rachel’s suggestion! The rest of the backside is a full bleed letterpress (in reverse, so the only thing that doesn’t have color is the information).
It’s just so wonderful to collaborate with other creatives — I love that we made something together that wouldn’t have existed if only one of us was working on the project! Be sure to check out Lupa & Pepi to see more of Rachel’s work. (I’m loving this new pattern in her shop!) She’s also offering a reader discount of 20% off design fees on custom business cards, so check it out if you’re in the market for some awesome. Just email Rachel at [email protected]pi.com and mention Lovely Indeed before January 31! xoxo
P.S. Yeah, my name is different now. It only took me two and a half years to take Mr. Lovely’s last name!
