Since logos were mentioned, I can t recommend highly enough. I set up a contest for my business logo, let it run for a week and got about 100 responses. Most are BS, the designer obviously just has canned logos that they change the text for, but about 10 of them were excellent. Ultimately I settled on a favorite and awarded him the win. I had posted $75 reward, but you can go lower. I thought $75 was pretty fair, and for that I got the logo in a hi res format, one formatted for the web, a favicon for my web site and a vectorized .ai version I can use for banners. If you decide to give it a try, PM me and I ll share the detailed instructions my son sent me. He s a real estate broker in Texas and uses them frequently.

While a good printer is essential for running a business, I still use professional printers for many things. For cards, brochures, etc, I go with Vistaprint. The prices are reasonable, the turnaround is fast and they deliver really high quality. In fact, I went with kraft paper for my business cards. Five hundred of them were $33.

Finally, I use for stamps. It s cheaper to stamp bags than order custom ones.

I actually have all my logos and cards in place now. Just trying to get a little more professional when I go to shows. I don’t do many since I mainly do furniture, but I want to expand a bit in my offerings for the next show.
