Anyone know where I can get some cheap round-corner + my logo done in spot UV or gloss or anything cool besides ink for cheap? The back information can be ink, and I dont need a lot of cards, I only need like 100 maybe even less.

WHCC does smaller quantities. I have some from them that I really like.

Do they do business cards? If they do I can't find what to click, not a good website imo.

An example of what I want, from an earlier post:

Oh okay, would you know how I can get started too? I'm not finding any buttons in the business cards page for customizing a design.

I believe you have to become a client first. Theres a link at the menu bar. I'm assuming once you sign up with them you'll have the ability to create and purchase.

Just a thought.

Yeah you have to become a client and submit some photo's so you can make sure your monitor is somewhat calibrated. You also have to download their program and order stuff through that. I will agree, the website was pretty confusing, but once you get into the program it starts to become a little easier to understand.

Here is a design Ive been working on the last few days, I feel confident going the die-cut route for a more unique look along with other elements such as UV spot, and foil etc. Anyway let me know what you guys think, what I should change etc....

By the way the car will be cut out, so the card will be the shape of the car in the end... Would that detract from professionalism?

I'm seeing 3 different fonts on this card. The fancy one should be dropped. You want a card to be easily readable and that font isn't.

There is also confusing info on your card. You list two phone numbers without describing why they are different. And your website and email are at different domains - that doesn't show continuity.

Lastly I don't think a photo of you in a tshirt does you any good on a business card. A nice image of real estate would be better if you need to use an image.

I think www.gotprint.com (external link) does that and their prices are great. I find WHCC to expensive for business cards. :)

Tony,

I like the die cut of the car, just not sure where your going with spot UV and foil. I think for an automotive photographer it screams professional

This one worked well for me in the past. It's important to generate a vector QR code so it will be printed at the highest clarity:

On the back, the text will be spot UV, and on the front my logo will be a silver foil. So over all the card does seem professional?

I like the car idea, but what I don't like is how the text and logo don't wrap with the car. The car looks great, but it looks like the logo and text are just flat stamped on top of a car design. It would look much cooler IMO if you made the text and logo wrap with the car, so it looked like the logo and writing was actually on the car like race car.
