Show me your photo sharing business cards

So I've been thinking these would be a good idea, and I went on to Vistaprint today, and they are 80% off today. So show me your examples, what wording, and if you used a photo sharing site, which one you used, how it works, etc.
TIA

    Thanks for asking this Laura! This is one of the next things on my to-do list also, and if they are 80% off, I should hop to it!

    Here's ours.  Just so you know, Vistaprint will very often have the business cards for free, so if you create the ones you want and just save in your portfolio, you might get a free offer soon. 

    If you have a lot of time before the wedding, I actually received mine with the glossy finish free too.  You just need to wait for the email with the best offer for you.

    Oh, and for the photosharing site, I chose flickr.com and just created a Yahoo account specifically for the photosharing, so the username is our two last names and the password is wedding.  It makes it fairly simple for people (it only took my Mom 3 tries to figure it out, which is good!)

    Shameless I love that design.. was that a template on the site or did you design it?
  • edited December 2011

    Thanks ladies! Right now they are 80% off, so for 250 their $4. I thought it was a pretty good deal.

    Both, kind of.  I couldn't find any ready-made designs I liked, so I started with a blank card template and searched through their images.  I searched by color, since I knew I wanted it to be red.

    There was one large image I liked, which I cropped to fit into the corner, and then just flipped it for each corner.  It was putzy, but worth it, since it will match our invitations pretty closely.

    I got 250 for free + shipping. Pic in bio, I just used one of their templates since it made it cheaper and I didn't care too much.

    I did business cards.  Because I'm picky, I didn't use any of the free templates, but created my own under Premium Business Cards.  If you sign up for their emails, you will get an offer to get the premium cards free almost every week.

    Are you guys just setting these cards out at the reception/ sending them with the invite... or how do you "give" them out?

    I'm thinking of having them on the tables, so people know that we want their pictures, then sending them out in TYs so they have the info in case they lost the card.

    I just bought three business card holders from Office Depot (nice wood ones for $4 each).  We'll put one in each bathroom, by our bathroom baskets, and one on the bar.  I'll also save enough of the cards to put one in thank you notes after the wedding.
