a prepster's guide to business cards

[this is a sponsored post, however all opinions are my own]

For a while now, I've been told to start making business cards - to promote myself as a journalist and social media director, and to promote my blog as well. I know I need to make them, but it's just so much effort to create a logo, to design a business card and to find a company to make them. That is, until I discovered Sweet Peach Paperie.

Tracy is a mom of three, who decided to turn her blog into a full-time business, and designs and sells invitations for parties, bridal and baby showers, and almost every event you can think of, as well as calling cards, party decorations, photo cards and notecards.

Not only are all of her stuff really cute, but they're also super-easy to order and arrive: it's all done online! With the purchase and payment of your order, Sweet Peach Paperie will customize your files.  The completed PDF files will arrive to your inbox within 24-48 hours.  The files will be completely ready to print at home or they can be forwarded to your local professional print shop.  Print, cut and assemble if needed.  Voila!

Tracy also has a "Preppy Stripe Collection" and a "Preppy Nautical Collection" with calling cards and party decor, and they are to die for. Seriously. It's striped. Ask anyone who knows me and they will say that I own way too many striped clothes and I have a ridiculous obsession with stripes. No, really. So when I collaborated with Tracy and she sent me my own customized calling card, from the preppy stripe collection, I nearly died.


This calling card comes in four different colors: green, red, light pink and bright pink. I ordered mine in the light pink (which, in hind sight, I shouldn't have done seeing as my entire blog is pretty much in bright pink, but the light pink was waaay too cute to pass up on!) Each calling card is sold for $7.50, and within 24-48 hours, is emailed to you, either in pdf or jpeg, depending on which you specify. They have navy blue stripes, and a single-initial monogram in navy blue as well, which I'm obsessed with!


Now these cards are delivered as one-sided calling cards, and can be used as anything from a greeting card, to a gift tag, to a business card to a luggage tag. I'm planning on matching the colors in a photoshop file and adding my information to the back of the card for a super-cute and super-preppy business card.

If you like Tracy's calling card, be sure to check out the rest of her stuff here, and you can contact her if you have any more questions and/or orders! I highly recommend Sweet Peach Paperie for your next party/event/holiday/it's a tuesday/anything haha!

Enjoy! xo caro.
