If you're a fellow mom blogger, you're probably aware of the HUGE blogging conferences coming up in the next few months. There's BlogHer '10 in the Big Apple in early August and Type-A Mom in Asheville in late September. Both are perfect opportunities to network with potential sponsors and connect with your peers. I am dying to attend one myself but it just wasn't in the cards this year. Maybe 2011 will be my year! But if you are lucky enough to have tickets to one - or both! - of these special events, you're going to want to make sure you have everything you need to promote your brand. With all of the expenses of travel and accommodations, you won't want to spend a fortune on supplies. If you are looking for professional yet cheap business cards to distribute, look no further than Digital Room.
Digital Room is a market leader in online printing, catering to small and medium businesses nationwide. In addition to business cards, you can design brochures, folded cards, posters, banners and more. Or, if you prefer, you can customize a template from their extensive online gallery. They offer 24-hour live phone and chat support so there is always someone available to answer your questions or walk you through the process. How's that for customer service?
One of the many things I love about Digital Room is that they offer eco-friendly printing alternatives. They have a SFI-certified 13 pt. uncoated cardstock containing 30% recycled materials. They also use vegetable or soy-based inks and water-based AQ coating to improve biodegradability. Digital Room is committed to green practices. They recycle all unused paper scraps, printing plates and ink waste. And because they use vegetable-based inks, they provide a safer work environment for production staff, reducing harmful fumes and VOC emissions.
Not sure what type of paper to choose? Would you rather feel the quality and texture before you buy? No problem! Just request a free sample kit to enhance your online buying experience.
I don't think Digital Room could make it any easier or affordable to print products online. They really live up to their motto - "online printing with a human touch".
