Forecast for the Future

"Every individual without exception bears a potential writer within himself. The reason is that everyone has trouble accepting the fact that he will disappear unheard of and unnoticed in an indifferent universe, and everyone wants to make himself into a universe of words before it's too late. 

Once the writer in every individual comes to life (and that time is not that far off), we are in for an age of universal deafness and lack of understanding."

Week 7, Day 2: Design a Business Card

I went with a light project tonight after going to Imanant's "Blue Album Group" show.

Thanks, Palm, for putting an "HQ" VGA camera on a $400 phone in 2007

I've been wanting to make some Hyperliving business cards for a while and tonight seemed like a good enough night as any, so I designed the graphic below in Photoshop and will bring to Kinko's later to get printed (or order online--does anyone have experience with this?).

If you're planning on getting UV coated (glossy) b-cards, I wouldn't go to Kinko's (cost). Instead checkout one of the on-line printers like Overnight Prints ( The link has all the specs you'll need for uploading your design.

If you're planning on getting full bleed b-cards, you might want to yelp for a local print shop so you can deal with someone in person who can guide you through the process. With all the colors you have on your design, a full bleed card will be pricey.

I made the stuffwhitepeoplelike comment on a previous post. As much as I'd like to claim it, it's not my genius.

thanks! i have never made biz cards and i have no idea how much they cost. kinkos seems expensive your idea of online printers seems much more sensible. not sure my endeavor is so serious as to go to a printshop, but i will keep that in mind too.
