My first business card… circa 1990!

I setup in business around 1990… I think. This card was created in CorelDraw, back in the days when neither I nor the software knew much at all about trapping (huh?). People loved that card 🙂

Hey, fellow bloggers… I want to see your first business card too! Or at least the oldest card you can still dig up from somewhere.

    What a great idea Alister. Mine was nothing much to look at – pretty shocking really. I’d give you the URL to see it but your comments box doesn’t like that and threw up an exception 🙂 But I will blog about it at my own blog!

    I think it looks great!!! Even though it was over 16 years ago, but I must admit they made a pretty sweet job here!

    I'm gonna try to find my first business card. It's from 1992 and I got it – just don't know where, but I'm gonna search for it this weekend… (p.s.: It was also created with one of the first Corel Draw versions…) :o)
