ALT Calling Cards 2012.


Exchanging business cards with fellow creatives is one of my favorite aspects of the Altitude Design Summit. I was pretty busy getting ready for the Method party and didn't exchange as many cards as I would have liked, but the ones I did get my hands on were beautiful!


Letterpress cards will always be a personal favorite. I'll never tire over the way they feel in my hands, the weight of the paper or the intricate designs. Jane's card was especially lovely.


My new friend Marie created cards that came with a caramel and the recipe. It was all packaged sweetly in a glassine envelope. And in case you're wondering, the caramel was delicious! I'm excited to try Marie's recipe for myself.


The lovely Danni is a packaging queen so it's always a treat to get one of her cards. I love the little animal paperclip and vinyl "Press On" that came with each one.


Before I left for Alt Lindsay sent a text telling me to keep an eye out for one of her bloggy favorites, Mindy Gayer. I was unfamiliar with Mindy and didn't think my chances were very good spotting someone when I didn't even know what she looked like. Well, guess who I just happened to sit next to during one of the panels? Yes, it was Mindy and she was so kind and lovely. A real gem. Plus, her card? It's pretty rad.

  1. This is the coolest ALT post I have seen yet! Each card tells so much about each blog and blogger without saying much at all. Makes me want to make some of my own!

  4. Wow, those are pretty special. Do they change from year to year? Do you feel pressure to make one that will truly stand out? I'm just curious...

  7. Thanks, Danyelle! Loved your card, too. :)

    I wish I had everyone's. I'm going to send Marie a stack so she can photograph them and add them to her pinboard. I'm trying to convince her to send me some caramels in return!

  8. Suzanne,

    Some people change their cards year to year and I'm sure some of them feel "pressure" to come up with something amazing. I on the other hand, used the same cards I took with me last year. Although, I already have plans to change things up a bit. xo.
