I collected a massive stack of business cards while at Alt Summit this year (yay) and have been looking forward to sharing them with you here this week. Just like last year’s roundup, I tried to sort the cards into collections by theme and have included links to each of the cards so that you can discover more from each blogger/business if you’d like. Oh, and you can cick on each image to see the cards enlarged. xo Ez
