Cards!

I know that some of you bandsters are very private about your lap band journey...it's a chance for you to share some serious feelings, what's going on in your life, and your weight (which is a sensitive subject, banded or not). I totally get that and understand how blogging is like a private journal or diary that you only share with certain people.

In contrast, I'm rather an "open book" with my journey. I share my blog address with anyone who asks or shows an interest. I especially like to share my blog link with those fellow bandsters at my surgeon's support group. I noticed at support groups that I was writing my blog link on backs of receipts, slips of paper, etc. So for about $8 (incl shipping) I designed my own business cards (250!) to hand out when someone asks for it.

I blurred out my real name, which appears at the bottom of the card (for internet security purposes). I wish that I had used all white lettering...oh well, still gets the job done.
I made the cards at vistaprint.com (I have no affiliation with this company, I just noticed they were the cheapest)

  1. I had thought about doing this too since I kept writing my blog address on the back of my work business card (which I don't particularly like doing). I also used Vistaprint for some of my wedding stuff 4 years ago -- they are cheap and fast!

    So cute! Hmmm....I may have to actually do this now!

  2. What a great idea! I've ordered cards from Vista print too. They do good work, but they will pester you with near-constant emails.

  6. I'm on the fence about sharing my blog info. I guess I am afraid people will judge me if I have a bad day. I don't mind comments from fellow banders but when some skinny bit*h that hasn't been overweight a day in her life tries to give me advise...I nearly blow my lid! Love the cards they are beautiful! I have used Vistaprint in the past and find that they are reliable and make quality products!

  11. That's a good idea and maybe when I get further along I will do something similar. I think I will be more open about my surgery after I get it done right now I don't want to hear everyone's opinions lol. Thanks for stopping by newish blog and showing love.
