Re: Show Your Business Card


Why do some of you folks have a domain that reflects your business name but the email address is @yahoo.com, @hotmail.com, @aol.com, etc?

Nothing to brag about. I know I need to upgrade. At least I bought them from a real printer, not some cheap thing bought at Staples.

Re: Show Your Business Card


Dam, I'm posting again. That is one classy business card. Less is almost always more, that card is just killer. In a world of marketing getting slammed in peoples faces that is so much better.

You inspired me. I think I'm gonna make cards that just says "Mike"

Mike

Re: Show Your Business Card


It amazes me how much time people spend tying to prove to customers they are experts by printing tons of garbage on things. In all actuality a simple classy card needs no proof, people just know...they don't have to be told.

Re: Show Your Business Card


So what's the general consensus?

one sided cards? or two.

I prefer a one sided card. (as a recipient) because I can write notes on the back.

But I can see the benefit of a dual side card too.

Re: Show Your Business Card


I can't take credit for my design. Found it on the Internet somewhere and made my own in vector graphics.

I had gotprint run off 500 (I think) for something like $30 in a really heavy card stock. Super thick.

I have had many compliments.

I know some people like to have the back side to write on but tough ****
