Hi everyone,

I've just had my new business cards printed, and am very happy with the results. I am very new to the photography business, but I've worked in the graphic design industry for many years. I wanted a very simple card which didn't try to say too much, as I believe my website is designed for that purpose.

The cards are 85mm X 45mm and printed on 310gsm artboard with a matte laminate on each side.

I'd love some feedback!

I like it, simple, effective, and it has impact. I wonder what kind of photography you do though.

You may have to log onto the website to find out! ;)

Trying to fit all the genres of photos I shoot on one card would have made for a very untidy card.

Any other seasoned veterans with some advice/feedback for a new kid on the block?

There are whole other threads dedicated to business cards & they're as personalized as underwear! Looks OK to me, but I'd put the back info on the front. Some guys stick them into a book file & others on a cork board, & you don't want to make it hard for them to see your info, do you?

The graphic looks great. IMO -- it is perhaps too simple. I would at least put the basic business information on the front. It might be useful to have a tag line that summarizes the kind of photography that you are offering in a few words. Dennis

Good point. I actually have stickers bearing the same design but with my url and phone number on the front. I use these on the back of prints I sell, and they could be used for the scenarios you suggested.

I honestly couldn't find any such tag line. I shoot commercial, architecture, portraits, weddings and fine art. If someone were to log onto my website they would quicklsy see the range of work on offer - I think that's the key thing.

On that same theme, I also carry "something new" with me when I meet a client I've met with before & a $0.17 4X6" print that will make it to his wall is cheap advertising. Can't keep showing them the same prints every time, can we? ;)
