Jacinda and I just got back from ALT Summit in Salt Lake City, where we had a blast hanging together and catching up with our blogger friends. I also had the pleasure of hosting two roundtables sharing everything I know about getting book deals (that’s me pictured above, mid-animated-speech). ALT Summit is the meca of clever & creative business cards; every year they grow more elaborate and more beautiful. After the conference when I had some time to kill on Saturday morning after Jacinda left, but before my flight, I went through my pile to follow up with some of the amazing bloggers I met. The cards were so fun and imaginative that I decided to snap a few pictures with my phone and do a little post for ya, thinking maybe you would find them inspiring. So may I present our favorite business cards from ALT Summit 2014…
This adorable card from Jensie Jean at Take Two They’re Small gets the point across in the most delicious way.
I had such a wonderful time meeting Gina from Willowday at the roundtable I hosted on Friday morning (she flew in to Alt Summit in Salt Lake City all the way from Sweden!), then when I got back to my hotel room I had even more fun seeing that her business card was also a tutorial! So clever, and who doesn’t love a balloon?

This collection of cuteness from Oh, Hello Friend includes a burnished wooden gift tag, two temporary tattoos, and a lovely business card inside an adorably decorated little envelope; but my favorite touch is the gold-toned, diamond-shaped paperclip.
Alexis Murphy from Jacolyn Murphy went to my awesome (all girls) high school! And also she had a business card that popped, with an adorable charm. So many cards had cute charms that I need to make an Alt Summit charm bracelet.
Melissa Esplin at I Still Love Calligraphy made these beautiful cards and packaged them in a velum envelope with a little display stand, so I can sit at my desk and feel wonderful and delicious while fantasizing about the ingredients that would make up my very own personal awesomesauce (ranch seasoning and low-fat greek yogurt?). I adore this and all of her work. She even offers online calligraphy classes on her website!
And in this case, one PR company made the list for me because I just thought this was so clever. Nicole from Daley PR handed out this postcard with a sticker “paper doll” and accessories, and all of the stickers are the actual products they represent. My daughter snagged this and immediately assembled herself a stylish sticker mama. I appreciate a good business card from a PR firm among bloggers.
Also, we were kinda into our clipboards we made for my How to Sell Your Book rountable…
