Welcome! I am Kathy McGraw of KMG, a graphic designer, east coast gal transplanted to beautiful southern California/ San Diego. This is some of what inspires me. I like to think of it as a mix of west coast bohemian and east coast folk meets Mumbai meets Paris. I'm drawn to eclectic hand done looks with lots of prints and texture, particularly Indian prints and French style. I love branding, packaging, hand lettering, hand printed designs, block printing, screen printing, letterpress and illustration...

BUDGET DESIGN: Hand Stamped Business Cards

It's been a while since I blogged… I've had a couple of crazy and busy months going back and forth from the west to the east coast. I wanted to post about a fun alternative for business cards. Sometimes it's great to get off the computer and do something by hand so this is why hand stamping appealed to me, and I wanted to show some hand stamped business cards that caught my eye… Custom stamps are a great way to experiment with your look on different colored papers, and try different colors of ink… Additionally you can use your stamp on stationery, and packaging, etc… French Paper offer some really great pop tone paper in various colors…, you can also get lovely business card paper at the Paper Source.

I'm quite new to stamping but I find it really unique. Thanks for posting this.

This post inspired me to make up a few custom carved hand stamped business cards even though I alread have cards! So fun.

I have been looking into getting some type of business cards and I am leaning towards getting some stamped cards I have not seen any like this ever before
