Default Re: Bow cards?

I ordered mine at vista print. I used the postcard size for it, which now I'm wishing I had ordered some smaller ones as well because for some things they look way too big. I don't worry too much about the slits looking perfect since the product covers it up, I just use a small blade to cut them.

I use a business card from Vista Print and got a cute little flower punch to use to clip the bows into, so it is not just a slit.

Vista Print- business card size, postcards and I also had the person who designed them make me a template that is postcard sized- but it is actually 2 cards on it- then i just use a paper cutter and i get 2 cards from each postcard (this is a great in-between size)- I use a regular hole punch or a paper cutter (for scrapbooks) or an exacto knife

True about the bow covering them. By the way, I love your logo! It's very cute.

I have one of these from Hobby Lobby, it's great for ali clips but if you use anything bigger like french clips they don't work (holes are too small). Not overly impressed by the quality of the punch (their own brand, McGill looks nicer), after awhile my hand really hurts. I put all my stacked bows on french clips because of the weight of the bow, and I have to double punch which is a huge pain and impossible to get nice looking holes. I've started looking at more industrial type paper punches but they never tell how long the reach is or the size of the holes, it's frustrating.

Do you remember who made you a template? I could really use one.

Thanks

Like most everyone said,
I get the postcards from Vista print.
They have frequent sales and have the free postcard special all the time, so even if I don't need them, I stock up

We had business cards made and they punched 3 holes in the card for us. 1 at the top to hang on a peg and 2 at the bottom to clip the bow on it. They only charged me $5 to punch the holes in 1000 cards....

Oh no! I just bought this punch-ordered it, but haven't gotten it yet. Bummer.
