Bizness cards!

I ordered my first official business cards from an actual company yesterday! I'm excited to get them and hopefully they come out looking good and the matte finish isn't too blah. I'm definately a starving artist, and i saved $10 bucks for not getting the glossy finish. hahah. can't wait to get them in the mail, and so glad i don't have to worry about making my own ugly biz cards for a while. yay!

inside 12.5x18.5 (13x19)
