Business Cards

I got really tired at OSCON of being the only person there without a business card and promised myself I'd do something about it when I got back.

I wanted a custom card, something with the eSTAR logo on it rather than a standard stock logo. In the end I bought from a company I found using Google AdWords called cardsmadeeasy.com. I guess I could have tramped down into the city and found myself a print shop, but I really couldn't be bothered.

Their site let me design my own card, including uploading my own logo. In the end I had the eSTAR logo and my contact details on one side, with my GPG key fingerprint on the other side. While I had a few inital teething problems with their java applet used to design the card, looks like my Mac's Java distribution may be missing a few fonts, everything else went reasonably smoothly. I was moderately impressed, of course, I haven't actually got the cards yet...
