Howto use WordPress as a CMS with PodsCMS (WordCampNL)No Post thumbnail set

New business cards have arrived
With the conception of this new freelance project I wanted sort of a retro futuristic feel to it, and colors like a beer brand. Today my new business cards arrived and I think the idea has turned out great. Not too much decorative elements, lots of empty space etc… Well, look for yourself, photograph’d them quickly with my Android phone.
