Here is a look at my promotional materials for the Kansas SCBWI Fall Conference!
The Business Card
Like Laura Zarrin, I chose to round the corners with a scrapbooking tool.
Pro Tip: You will get a hand cramp if you try to round more than 100 corners in one sitting. (Ouch.)
For consistency, I featured the same character and paper patterns in both designs. The image from the front of the postcard (minus the web address) will also serve as the title page for my physical portfolio.
These materials were printed by Educational Publishers, a division of the company I work for in Manhattan, Kansas.
