Did you ever thought about having business cards as a Blogger? Because I did! I started my blog as a personal one thinking about it more as a hobby rather than a business but with years passing by I realized this is my part-time job. So why not act as a professional person and have business cards for it? It was then when the guys from Aura Print contacted me and offered me the chance to review their service.

Their customer service is amazing: prompt, friendly and professional. I highly recommend them.
The details they needed from me to start making the business cards were:
- Full postal address;
- My artwork (if I was supplying it: 85mm x 55mm, CMYK, 2mm bleed on each edge);
- Artwork instructions (if they were designing for me, with the option to send them logos or anything else);
- My choice of core colour (from here)
I didn’t have an artwork prepared, only a logo and chose Intensive Red as core colour. I let them know that I would like to have a surprise so they can design my business cards. They answered to me very prompt and sent an artwork they did for me so I can approve/amend it (change the design, check the spelling etc). Of course I approved it, it was exactly what I needed, they created the perfect design to describe my blog.
My business cards were sent via DPD and the guys from Aura Print provided the tracking details so I was able to see an estimated time of delivery.
The package arrived. Curious what was in the PINK BOX?! A lovely way to pack the business cards. 250 business cards for my blog!!! Couldn’t believe it! I was dreaming about turning this blog more professional and this is a great way to do it!What I like about the business cards from Aura Print:
