I am ready to buy some business cards. What I would like from the groups is to see what eveybody else uses. I have tried about 10 different designs and have not liked one. If you could post an image of your card, I would be eternally grateful. I do not want to copy anybody's card, just get some gidance. I want to make sure that I make a great 1st impression. Thank you in advance for your help.

I tried printing some cards of my own. I used several different stocks. I put an image of myself and my wife on it. I am fairly pleased (i guess), but the paper that I like for the texture sucks for the photo. I will look into that double sided photo stock. Thanks again.

Here's one of my current cards. I have a few different types that I keeep on hand at any given time. For the photo cards, I just print small batches on my inkjet. I also have a run of 1000 text-only cards with my full contact info.

This is far more effective than to try to list the different types of photography that you do. I think what I have come up with is way too busy. I will have to try to do something like this!

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Business cards are so cheap (1000 for $60-70) that there's really no reason to print them yourself. You can get text on the back or even full color on the back, 1000 for less than $150...
