I would like to also make a comment about the phone number - there is a reason why phone numbers are broken into segments: the human brain isn't wired for remembering long number sequences, this is why different kinds of number sequences are broken up. (globally)

You are doing yourself a disservice by not having some sort of hyphenation in your phone number.

the phone number and web address are too close to the bottom of the card. you need at least .125 of an inch from all sides to allow for the cuttingn process of the cards.

I personally, like either spaces, dots or lines between exchanges in phone numbers, having them run all together messes up my mind if I want to call... "which number did I just press...?"
123.456.7899 or 123 456 7899 or 123|456|7899

Love the colours, love the fonts.... layout is clean... very nice.

I will give this a +1.

Don't change a thing. It's perfect because you say so. Don't bother listening to design tips. Just print them. :roll:

I think it looks great but as someone suggested, I'd put a ph: in front of the phone number and (in my own opinion) divide the number with periods.

ph: 216.406.3229

I agree that it needs an email address.

The phone number is there, why make them go to your website to hunt down your email? Might as well make them go to your website to find the phone number, too. You don't want to make them work to find you - the purpose of your business card is to provide contact info, isn't it?

Regards,
Jim

I love the card, I think you did a great job with it. I also checked out your website and it looks awesome too! Did you use the same font for the card's URL that you used on your website? The card makes more sense after looking at your website, they work very well together. On your website you used a period in your phone number, I think that would work better on your card too.
I'm torn with the email suggestion...I think you want to drive as much traffic to your website as possible, and most questions are answered there..so I could go either way with that suggestion.
