Blog Business Cards From StressFreePrint

As you may know i am off to Britmums Live on Friday which is a two day blogging and social media event held in London thanks to my wonderful sponsor MAM UK. As i will be meeting lots of brands and bloggers at the event it came to my attention that i would need business cards to hand out to people i had chatted to, so they knew who i was and could connect with me after the event if they wished.

I had no idea where to start with business cards as i have never had to make any before and when i had a brief look online i was overwhelmed by the amount of different companies out there and i had no idea how to design my own as i am useless with anything like that. Luckily i noticed that the really talented and lovely Zoe Corkhill  was designing bloggers business cards for the event and i contacted her to see if she could design me some to match my blog. Zoe quickly got to work designing my cards which have my blog header on and the fonts, colour scheme and social media icons from my blog making them easily identifiable to my blog. She also included my Britmums sponsor and their logo and i was really happy with the finished result.


I then had a look around to see where to get my cards printed from and i came across StressFreePrint an online printing company who make a range of products such as leaflets, menus and business cards. They aim to make the whole print buying experience as stress free as possible which sounded perfect for me.

I found the website really easy to use with clear step by step instructions throughout you simply choose how many cards you would like between 50-10,000 then you select if you want colour on one or both sides of your cards, if you would like standard or recycled paper, if you would like matt, gloss or semi gloss finish on your cards. You can then either upload your own artwork to be added to the cards, get a one of the designers to create the artwork for you or use the online designer to create your own design. You then preview and check your design and then a one of the design team will check your cards for free and send you a on-screen proof which you then check over and approve before they go to print , giving you peace of mind.


I was kept up to date throughout the whole process and as soon as i give the go ahead that i was happy with the cards they were sent straight to print and i had an e-mail a day later saying when my order would be arriving and then i received regular updates from StreeFreePrint and the delivery company regarding my delivery with a one hour delivery slot. Delivery was free and super quick within 3 working days, you can pay extra to fast track your order if you are in a hurry.

When my cards arrived i was very impressed they arrived well packaged in little white storage boxes keeping them nice and tidy. And the quality of the cards is amazing the colours and design are great and the cards look and feel nice and thick and have a lovely finish to them and they wont tear easily. They look very professional and i can not wait to hand them out at the event as i am really happy with them.


So if you are looking for some business cards for an event like Britmums or any of the other blogging events this year or even for your business then i really do recommend StreesFreePrint their customer service skills are brilliant with super helpful and friendly staff, they check your artwork and send you a proof to make sure you are happy before they go to print and the turnaround time is quick. I was also really impressed that i got free delivery within a few days as a lot of other companies seem to charge a lot for delivery. And most importantly the cards are amazing quality and look great.
