4th Blogiversary! + Tiny Prints Contact Cards

Tomorrow marks the 4th anniversary of my blog, woohoo! Each year has been filled with fun moments and of course FOOD.  I love sharing new items and information with you all, it's been so much fun!  Thank you to all of you that stop by, read, and comment!

I thought my blog anniversary would be a good time to also talk about my blog contact cards that I recently ordered from Tiny Prints, since this review has to do directly with my blog - how v. Meta, haha.

I've mentioned Tiny Prints before in a guest post over at Hey Love Designs because I really like their designs for cards, so it was definitely one of the first places I looked at for contact cards. I say contact cards mainly because I don't particularly associate this information with a business, if that makes sense.  It's a great way for me to pass on my contact information at food blogger meetups or if I meet anyone out that also has a blog or an interest in food, stuff like that.

Originally, I was looking for strictly food or sweets-related designs in the contact card section, since I thought they would match my blog. As you may be able to tell, there are LOTS of parent contact cards here as well, which I obviously don't need, but I think this is such a cute idea for parents that meet other parents at events.  But then I started looking at more of the business cards and really liked a lot of the designs in there too.  Even though my blog is mainly about food and sweets, I realized that it should also reflect my personality as well, and not necessarily JUST food.

I finally decided on the Hello Intro design, in the rectangle shape as you can see above. I love the pop of coral color, and the casual script of the hello across the front of the card.  I was able to include all of my blog-related contact information on the back easily, and each line is clear and not cluttered with too much text.  I know to most people it might be "just a card", but I feel like this design captures the lighthearted and never-too-serious nature of my blog pretty well :o)

As far as my ordering experience with Tiny Prints, I was able to personalize the card quickly and I received the order within a matter of days. I am very pleased with the paper and ink quality, and they looked just as good as they were online.  If anyone is looking for personal business cards, or thank you cards, I would recommend giving Tiny Prints a try!

Tiny Prints is currently offering a 20% Friends and Family sale discount, with no minimum purchase required, until June 25th.  The discount code is " FNF13 " - I may pick up a few more cards myself with this great discount!

(Note: I was not compensated by Tiny Prints for this post, I ordered and paid for these cards entirely on my own. I was recently approached by someone from Tiny Prints asking if I would consider writing a review of my new cards; I was already planning on writing this review, haha).
