I make a new one every now and then, so I have a lot of different business cards.

My latest one just has my webpage address. I removed the email and phone number from there: if they are serious about contacting me, they'll check my work first.

And I get less drunk phone calls from wannabe model chicks that want me to work for free.

I am having these cards printed this week - what online service should I use?

I plan on having one side glossy and the other flat, just so the the graphics and photo pop a bit more. The backside will be flat so I can write on the card if needed...

Comments or suggestions?

I tried it out on normal printer paper and an average printer...it looks great on these subpar materials so I'm sure it will print well as a final product.

I have printed my business cards using ineedtoprint.com It's cheap for the amount you get and the quality is top notch. Full bleed color printing.

If wanting other sizes than that listed under business cards try to look under the areas of postcard or elsewhere to see if that is something that interests you.

^^Zens, wouldn't it have been better to simply buy a domain name and forward it to your flickr? Because on the first view, the back of your card makes it really the ''amateur look''. Flickr + Gmail = Bad first view.

Something along the line of ''Zenslensphoto.com'' can buy bought for 12$ a year. You can even get a free email address to go with your domain name.

It would look a lot more professional, even if it simply redirects you to Flickr.

Just my 0.02$ thought, I don't know your background story so maybe you're perfectly fine with Flickr and Gmail.

No worries Rivest, I'm just starting out and will be making a website when I either figure out how, or find someone to help with it. For now these are just a trial run, wanted to see how they'd turn out.
Appreciate the .02$ though :)

I wasn't talking about making your own website I was refering to domain name forwarding.

Basically you just buy let's say zenslens.com and forward that name to your flickr account. So when people type your website, they get straight to your flickr, without having to type all those letters and slashes : f-l-i-c-k-r-.-c-o-m-/-p-h-o-t-o-s-/-z-e-n-s-l-e-n-s

Hope you get my idea ;)
