I can't believe I ordered something from "Got Print?"

But they were so cheap I couldn't help myself.

So, I have my website, that I'm currently working on, though you can't tell if you go to the site, but I am.

And since I bought a fancy new business card holder from Sam Moon while in Dallas, I figure I should probably fill it with cards that weren't printed from my home printer.

Seeing as the high gloss paper I use costs about 20 bucks a pack from Office Max and I would need to refill my cartridges for like 6 bucks each and also need to buy a new paper cutter for probably 10 bucks-- I thought I'd leave my cards to the professionals this time.

I didn't use the printer that I like and have used in the past, JakPrints. I'm taking a chance on GotPrint (omg).

For less than the price of making them myself, I got 100 thick, matte finish, rounded corners, full color bleed both sides, delivered for 26 bucks. Can't beat that with a stick.


(imagine the round corners, if you will)

I'll be honest, it was really hard to commit to one design for my own card. I mean, I make cards for other people, this card has to be perfectly appropriate and well done.
But I only ordered 100, so if I end up thinking they are lame in a year, I'm not guilt-bound to them forever.
