Similar to business cards, which is why I ordered them, Erin Condren Contact Cards provide some basic information in order to contact you. Wow! Surprising! The difference is that a lot of their premade templates are super, super cute. Since I was in need of some new cards (I had previously used VistaPrint) I decided to try them out. Now let’s find out more after the jump!
So, let’s start with the not awesome things and then move onto the good to get it out of the way.
The Not Awesome
- Templates While there are quite a few cute options, it’s sometimes hard to tell how well the text will read after printing. That’s, sadly, what happened with my first go-round template. The blue used for the name made my name practically illegible. 🙁 After letting them know and sending images they very quickly provided store credit so I could order a different set! So, sad but with a happy ending.
- Price Ouuuuch at those prices. If I hadn’t had store credit initially I probably would have gone back with VistaPrint. Currently the pricing for the cards is 60 cards for $30, with rounded corners being an additional cost (which I did pay for because…rounded). I have to say, the quality is great though which leads me to…
There’s only so many ways to show thickness on cards, y’all
- Quality The paper used is 130lbs, which leads to a nicely thick output. They aren’t easily bent, so in the long run they should hold up pretty well. They say that it’s a matte paper, and for the most part I agree, though there is some sheen on the artwork but it’s not so outside the realm of matte that it’s too noticeable. Unless you’re super detail oriented like me. Oops!
- Templates Yes, this is both a pro and a con! There are a multitude of super cute templates available. You’re able to customize (for the most part) with the information you’d like to use.
- Printing The quality of the final printing is super great. There aren’t any unintentional breaks in the artwork or text, it has rich colors, and the rounded corners look great!
- Font Oh man I love the font on the Watercolor Floral and always have – not just on these cards, either. I would show y’all the super cute email/phone number fonts (it’s different from the fonts shown) but, no offense, I keep some things wrapped up!
No, I don’t mean the clothing article. While the price is high, I’d probably order the Erin Condren contact cards again. Not only am I a lot attached to the template design, the card itself is very well-made and they look A+.
Where do you normally order your business cards? 🙂
