    If one were to print your resume, how will they know where to access your website, dribbble, etc...

      Thanks for the feedback! What do you suggest is a good way to deal with that without cluttering up the top of the page? My assumption with my implementation is that if its in printed form, they cannot get to my links with out getting to computer and typing it in. If they have the digital form its on their computer and they can click. Perhaps I can link to my main site only.

        I'd definitely suggest main site only. That's viewed as more serious/professional than anything else and if someone cares to go to your Twitter or Dribbble, they can get there via your site.

        I agree with what the other poster said. Place the website url, from there they can usually access the others, and you can also mention the others sometimes in an email when sending your resume. Here's an example where your situation may not work, you send the resume, it goes to HR, HR prints it then hands it off to hiring staff. There's also the unpredictable element where something can go wrong viewing it on their end as well, where maybe the hyperlinks won't work.
