asking for trouble

New printed things

New business cards

I just collected a box of stuff from Vistaprint. They have a fairly bad reputation but I’ve always had a great experience and everything I order has turned out perfectly. They were doing a mega ridiculous sale the other week so I went a bit crazy but got lots of things for free.

My main reason for ordering was business cards which cost me a whole £10 for 500. They turned out really nice, though nowhere near as lovely as my beloved Moo cards. Still, it’s good to have a basic generic design that I can throw around without feeling I am wasting my expensive cards.

Super Cute Kawaii sticky notes

I also took advantage of the offer to get some Super Cute Kawaii sticky notes! We have been wanting these for ages and they are even cuter in real life. Having cute office accessories used to really get me through the day so why not cheer up your desk with Bunny and Panda? They’re available now in the shop.

Jammie Dodger card

Also available are Jammie Dodger Valentine’s cards! I couldn’t resist as he’s perfect for a Valentine with his heart full of sweet sticky jam. The rest of the gang will turn up in card format eventually but I have other stuff I need to do first.
