Take the second one with your name.
If you have given me your card, then I assume you already know what I want it for, so the list of what you photograph isn't important.
Also that list might close some doors if someone wants you to take a picture of their Pet or something.

Off road racers and their families & sponsors. I do a lot of marketing on Facebook.

Not sure if I'm digging that font choice for the back header, that sort of blocky old style serif comes across as quite dated IMO. Also on the front, gradient effects like that likely won't look as polished when printed.

1000 double sided (upload your own designed card image file) thick glossy, multi-color for $25. It's where I got mine.

Wow! 25,000 business cards for $226US. That's a pretty sweet deal.

I'm willing to bet that's the equivalent to 25,000 business cards in the trash and a new order from a quality print shop on the way for $226..

Trying to decide which direction to go in. Any thoughts? Maybe neither. Email address is going to be Heath (at) HeathHurwitz.com. THe first version was originally horizontal, but I chopped it up to make it vertical.

Thanks,
Heath
