Making Business Cards for Blogher #print4blogher

This week the kids helped me to prepare my business cards for the upcoming Blogher Conference. We chose The UPS Store in Laguna Woods to go use their printing services. I am the most indecisive person ever, so I was hopeful that the owner was going to help me make the best choices.

When we walked into the store it had to be one of the nicest The UPS Store locations I have been in. It was clean and neat. Everything was easy to find and the kids felt right at home.

Did you know that if you get a PO Box at a The UPS Store location that it will have a real street address? Then your sender will not know they are sending your mail to a PO Box.

The UPS Store does color copies, portfolios, business cards and all of your printing needs.

The best thing about The UPS Store is that they are privately owned and operated. That means that they put a lot of care and detail into your order and the way you get treated as a customer. When I came into the store the owner set my children up in the back of the office with markers and paper so I could work with him without any distractions.

He even let Tyler hold his collectible plane and did not even get mad at him when he broke one of the wheels off of it.

I brought in my current business card, a copy of a business card I was recently given that I liked, my photos on a flash drive and they did the rest. The owner spent almost two hours designing the card with me. He really helped to guide me to make the best choices and created a unique and awesome looking card.

While we were working he took time to give my children a lot of attention as they kept bringing him pictures they had drawn for his store. He was so patient and kind. After I left I got follow-up emails and phone calls with samples of the final work along with different price quotes. We went over the different options and I returned to the store to see a sample product before I gave the ok to start printing.

We returned after grocery shopping next door eager to see what the cards would look like in person. I am such a visual person that it is sometimes hard for me to picture something online. I love to touch and feel what the final product will look like.

I loved the final product. I could tell that the owner had put a lot of work into designing the card. I was a little worried about using my photo because I recently colored my hair, so he made a sample in black and white for me to look at too. Since I change my hair color so frequently it could possibly be dark again soon so we selected the color cards.

And the inside is pretty awesome too! With a QR Reader that goes right to my website!

I can't wait until they come in! It should only take about 5-7 business days and I will have 1,000 new cards! If you are planning on going to Blogher I highly recommend you getting your cards at The UPS Store. If you are local in Orange County come to Laguna Woods and visit the location I went to, and you will not be disappointed.

  1. Being a mom, it can be difficult to take your children shopping with you. Feeling that your kids are welcome somewhere would make me a repeat customer! They did a great job on your cards too!

  2. Thank you! Yes!! Shopping with kids is never easy. It is so wonderful to find a place that welcomes children into their store and understands that they will and can make some noise.

    I cannot wait to get the new business cards!! Yipee!
