We met Zida of Studio Z Mendocino at the Wedding & Portrait Photographers International (WPPI) tradeshow and convention this past March. It was a serendipitous meeting – we happened to share a table in the food court at lunch – and we stayed in touch over the last
It was wonderful meeting Zida – she was very nice and expressed an earnest interest in SnapKnot and what we were trying to accomplish at WPPI. Zida brought along her portfolio and we had the opportunity to thumb through her work. We were very impressed!

“Zida has truly given me a new brand and I love her for that!” – Maria Bernal
Maria Bernal was at our same table at lunch. Maria is a wedding photographer and friend of Zida’s, and recently asked her to design new business cards for a brand refresh. She showed us the results:

These were the most impressive business cards I’ve ever seen! Great design on a very thick mount. These cards are bigger and bolder in all dimensions than the average business card – a real piece of art that you want to keep upon receiving it. Impossible to throw away or forget about like so many dozens of thin business cards collected at networking events. This is a real “keeper” – and that’s exactly what you want in a business card!
Zida gives the details of these cards: “Black, super thick Museum Mount with three foils: black gloss foil, pewter-silvery foil and hot pink fuchsia foil. The bodacious flash of hot pink edge painting sent her new business cards on a trajectory to Venus. Nobody can believe them.”
Why should you consider getting high-end business cards?
“I consider business cards little ambassadors for your business that have to work super hard for you when you are no longer there. Many of our cards do cost over $1 a piece, and the people who are willing to bite the bullet and even put it on their credit card invariably tell me how happy they are they made that investment in their business, that the cards are so special that people won’t even put them in their purses or pockets…they put them on their mantles and call back in two weeks because they couldn’t stop thinking about them. So it is sort of a magical thing, a powerful business tool that works.” – Zida
Zida designed the business cards for one of our newest wedding photographers, Gavin Wade:
