The Business Cards of Alt Summit 2013

Hi y’all! I’m back from Alt Summit and trying to get back into the swing of normal life. It was the best, most exhausting four days of my life! While I’m still processing all of the information I took in, I decided to share some of my favorite business cards from the awesome bloggers and brands I met while in Salt Lake City. Since Alt is a conference for creative people, the business card exchange has become a beautiful and fun tradition, now in it’s fourth year. I have linked to all of their blogs so click around if you are looking for some awesome new people to follow, I still have some exploring to do myself!

Lexy from The Proper Pinwheel and Melisa from LuLu the Baker really blew me away with the time spent on their cards. I mean, Lexy stitched together glitter garland for everyone!

Alt set up these boards in the hallway for everyone to stick their cards too, so fun! I was seriously amazed by all of the creativity!
