mint’s new business cards


Did you check out my DIY business cards post over on Pitch yesterday? Lots of good ideas, and as promised, here are my handmade business cards! They’re digitally printed on some paper left over from a past project, and then patterned masking tape and string were added afterward. Looks like I’m ready for Alt!


{These will be added to the shop next week, in case you’d like a set of your own!} Sorry, these are no longer available for sale!

These look awesome! I love the combination of the different materials; each of these is like a little collage! Oh your cards will stand out so much more than others.

I love these! They all look so personalized. I love that they’re different. I would definitely add these to my inspiration board at home!

ellie, you have remarkable color sensibility! the patterns are simply gorgeous, and from what i can tell (by reading your blog and seeing your design work) they really express you.

wow, thank you so much! i’m glad you guys like them :) it’s always weird to look at the 100th card you made and go, “wait, are these good?” so i’m glad you think yes. i’ll be furiously tying knots on the plane.

ellie, these are great! i love that you could create something amazing from things you already had… and it reflects your design sense so well!

ah! wonderful! i have a small-town event coming up asap, and my business cards won’t be back from the print press in time. this is perfect!! i’ve been looking for some wonderful project to do with patterned masking tape!

awesome! of course, this design is copyrighted (and for sale, if you’re interested!) but i’m glad you find them inspiring enough to make your own DIY cards!

I also really enjoyed the DIY cards over on Pitch. Never thought there would be so many cool ways to DIY cards! Thanks for sharing!

P.S I love your style of design, your blog is so inspiring!

These are really great biz cards. I love collecting cool business cards and tacking them on my inspiration board in my craft room. These would definitely be a great addition to the collection!

I *love* these. I find that having many different styles of the same card engages the recipient at a new level – give them a little stack and let them pick their favorite (which is what I do with my moo cards that aren’t half as cool as yours!).

Wow – I love these handmade business cards by Ellie Snow of the design blog Mint. It just goes to show what you can create with a digital printer, pretty masking tape and lots of creativity. The cards will soon be for sale in Ellie’s shop. Inspiring and adorable…
