free business cards

There’s a brand new freebie offer over at InkGarden for 50 FREE Business Cards! There are several hundred super CUTE design templates so all you have to do is fill in your info, and upload a photo or logo (optional) and you’re all set.

Even if you don’t have a business, these make great contact cards for parents, bloggers, freelancers and even for your pets!

Super convenient when you run into someone at the dog park, grocery store, library, school event, etc. and want to connect later for a play date, study session, lunch, or networking. If you’ve got teenagers who do babysitting or odd jobs, you can make some for them, too. The nice thing is that you control what contact info you include. I’ve seen some that only have an email address or Facebook page.
