Yours truly...

nadnut’s namecards.

Let me tell you all about the namecards fiasco.

It all started at the LG KS20 event. I was invited as a blogger for the event then. At the reception table, one of Fleishman Hillard’s guys asked me for my namecard. As some of you guys know, I’m pretty anal about revealing where I work and I do not think it’s right for me to give my work namecard. Afterall the nadnut on the blog is different from the Nadia at work. There should be two different identities. ANYWAY, back to the story… I then told him that I do not have a namecard. He then passed me HIS namecard and asked me to write my name and number. This was for the lucky draw happening later.

Do you know how paiseh it was? Well, it felt that way for me. To scribble my particulars on someone else’s namecard. BAH.

After the event, I then decided I was going to print namecards and I wanted them done way before I traveled for my Australia trip. I then searched for a place to print namecards when I stumbled onto Claudia’s entry. I thought it was damn cheap. I was willing to pay up to 100 bucks (yes, i know. to buy “pride”).

I then enlisted the help of my buddy who is a fantastic designer (I wanted to ask Jayden but he was so busy doing his FYP that I decided not to disturb him :P) and gave him a few specifications. I did not want the typical business namecard. I wanted something fun and uniquely me.

And here’s the outcome!

Rainbow and clouds. Uniquely me. I chose the titles because I wanted something fun thus the camwhore enthusiast. (Obviously I omitted the hp number here. :P) If you’re wondering about the vodkaster bit, yes, it was intentionally spelt that way. Go think about it. 😛

The lines in the background actually spells out nadnut. Heh! And that little cartoon girl is me! He drew me! Heh. I know i know, I’m not THAT cute but the fringe is definitely so me! :X

And he even did a little logo for me!

So cute right?!

Thank you Gerald! If you need someone to help you design stuff, you can contact him! He charges quite reasonably. 🙂

I then went down to Tommy Print. I paid 30 bucks for 3 boxes. (300 namecards) And the quality was good. I had opted for matt lamination but now come to think of it, maybe I should have gone for gloss lamination to bring out the bright colours.

Well, I’m left with 2 boxes now, maybe the next batch would be gloss lami!

Thanks Gerald for the designs and thanks to Claudia for the review AND thanks to Rinaz! For after I’ve seen her post, I’ve realised I haven’t blogged about my namecards though they were printed like 2 months ago? Oops. RINAZ! I want one of your namecards. They’re so chio! I like her cartoon characters! Cute!

  1. Eh nono, don’t get me wrong. It’s just that the brick background doesn’t seem to match your colorful card!

    (I didn’t go through with the picture taking thing with you! DOH)
