Do you have business cards? If you are an artist you should have them and keep them handy. It doesn't matter if you are a professional artist or just paint as a hobby, a business card connects you to both collectors and other artists. How many times have you been at an art event and met people you would like to remember? Those are the times that exchanging business cards would be helpful.
If you are selling your work then a good business card is essential. You want to share your card with collectors and potential collectors. But here's an important consideration:
You need a card that people will KEEP. If they toss it, they won't remember you or won't be able to get in contact with you.
When I exchanged cards with fellow artist Denise Rose, I was impressed. Her card is like a little work of art and I keep it on display. I had to have some cards like that! (thanks Denise!)
I just received my batch of cards from Moo.com and I am thrilled.

Yes they are a bit more expensive than Vista Print. But if you want a card that people will KEEP it is well worth the extra cost.

The great thing about the Moo business card is the ability to have up to 50 different images printed in the same batch of cards....in full color and front and back! With Vista Print I could only have one image for the entire batch of cards. I chose to have rounded corners for a small extra charge and I like how they look. Here is some more information taken from the moo.com website:
"Handing out a business card is often the first impression people take of your business, so you need to get it right. Using your own photography or artwork to create custom business cards can help, and MOO makes the process easy with our simple online tools and templates.
Our Business Cards are double sided, printed in full colour at no extra cost, and available in short print runs. There's a choice of premium paper for Business Cards too: As well as sustainably sourced Gloss, you can choose 100% recycled with a light satin finish or sustainably sourced, with a smooth matte laminate."
