I still think you need design in bright blue/green to set-off the contrast...

I was playing around today and come up with a card that's almost as wordy as I am...almost. I am trying to come up with something to give to give to stores that have at least some info on it.
I know, let go of the need to justify your face painting existence...baby steps... I've been trying to get past the blank business card template for about 2 weeks. My husband and son came up with the name...I think I like it more for sentimental reasons...you know...they were brainstorming for ME!
I didn't ask them if it hurt or anything! It's sweet and my son was so proud of it, I guess I'll keep it.

My husband started a site for me this weekend...like I'd know what to do with it, so I have to get that up and running before I can print any cards...so I have time to de-vocabularize it and to bribe my kids into letting me paint some more recent faces.

Very wordy... and do you don't really want to use the web-guy in print do you??

Take out the middle "why..." part and it is a decent business card. This version could be a postcard or resume....

Web guy is just a place holder until I can nail my son down to a chair.

I figured I'd have to lose the Why part...I have issues with unused space.
Maybe that explains my cluttered garage...

wondering if a bigger border on the images might help separate them from the background?

I was going for the "snap shot" look.

I just caught the part about the resume/postcard thing. I think I like that idea...well...for store postings. I think I'll do both! Simple business cards and resume' type postcard thingys. Thanks guys!

as for the issue with "unused space" ... make the fonts bigger... you don't want them to need a magnifying glass to read your card. Just the basics on a business card. If you MUST put all the other stuff on there, put it on the back.

My new version of a business cards failed the test group here in Kansas but this version passed with flying 'colors' (I made a funny). Any opinions? I have not ordered them yet.

Back side is the regular contact information.

Jadye: Too much text. Let your pics do all the talking. Plus your card is about 3.5 times larger than normal and I can't read the type, so went it is shrunk and bleeds a bit, there will be no way to read it.

Cox: Very nice, but would try and replace the two photos in the middle with more color. Color is more eye catching.

what software do you use to create your business cards? I'm a Mac user and have a hard time finding affordable software.

I was a mac user when I first started graphic designing for the websites my husband was coding but, over the years, I have found it very hard to ignore the large amount of stuff for IBM compatible users. I went to the dark side about 10 years ago.

Let me know if you find something good for a mac. I am interested.

I learned MAC in college for graphics and like them, but I am a PC user (need it for the games) the first time I tried GIMP for the PC, it kept crashing, that was a few years ago and I have recently tried it again, and I have not used it a lot but it seems more stable. I too recommend it as it is free!

I used Pages for MAC. Not sure how expensive. I use my work computer after hours. We are an OMNICOM company so, it may be pretty pricey. On my PC at home I use Microsoft Works Templates..........

I mock mine up in MS PictureIt (which came on my computer)... save it as a JPEG, then email it to my printer with the orginal images for them to create on their software and have their designer tweak it for me.

This is mine -I need to clean it up some more but it's all original art. I can't get the size right to post it but if you click it it opens up and you can read it.

Yes
Info about products including the name brand
Hygiene
Removal

I am a designer but too close to my product - so I had a friend whip me something up and I traded a party.

The design translated nicely into the logo I used for embroidery.
Speaking of which ...I used Queesnsboro.com
no set up fee and 4 piece min very resonably priced great tools for changing the color of your logo if it's going on a dark vs. light shirt.
