Sweet­ness! My first offi­cial, (per­sonal) busi­ness cards. The ones that weren’t actu­ally printed via Vista Print =)

Thanks to Eric of for help­ing me get them here quick. I just put the order on Thurs­day, May 17—and they arrived today… only 5 days! Fast indeed.

Note: Only $33.83 for 300 w/ Spot UV applied on my name… I need a bet­ter desk lamp.
