As most small businesses know, social media is a key component to our success. Connecting with clients and customers through websites like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, and Google+, etc. is a great way to grow our online presence.
To make it easier for your fans and followers to find you, why not add a 'connect with us' section to your business cards. You can add a professional touch by using social media icons. Most people these days recognize these logos at a glance.
Below are links to the official brand assets page where you can download the social media icon of your choice. Each social media website has specific guidelines to follow when using their official logos, so be sure to read their instructions carefully. You may need to be signed in to your account to view these pages.

Yesterday at 4:44 p.m. EDT, we officially crossed over into the Fall Season. Just because the days will grow shorter and the vegetation will grow dull and drab doesn't mean we have to let our businesses follow suit.

That is why I'm happy to announce the official release of the the Leopard Print Fall Fashion Business Card Collection.

What if I want a specific color and I don't see it on the chart?
No problem. Assuming you've already read part one of this tutorial we will continue where we left off. Instead of choosing a color and clicking done in the color box window, we will click on the Advanced link at the bottom. If you know the HEX Code, jut type it into the Hex Box, or you can use the color selector to choose the color you want, To lighten or darken your selection use the vertical slider to the right.
Now you just click DONE. Don't forget to click DONE on the Color box menu as well, or your changes won't stick.
And there you have it. Your custom selected color will show up on the business card preview.

Have you found the perfect business card to represent your brand or profession, but hate that ugly white background on the back? No problem. Changing the color is quick and easy.
Step 1: Click the Customize It! button on the product page.
Step 2: When the Customize page opens up, click Edit and select Background from the drop down box.
