Call it whatever "hip" name you want "networking card", it's still a business card!

Before they were called "business cards" they were called "calling cards" so maybe he is onto something.

Like "Branding" used to be known as "reputation"

I changed mine from my last design and decided on this one. I liked having stuff on both front and back. So unlike my last post....this is what my cards looks like.

Hey, it's not bad for a small jpeg of the card. :-)

I was about to ask what size the phone number is. I forget where I read it, but someone said they make sure the phone number is super large and easy to read with out glasses. It may put your card ahead of someone elses to be called. :)

I am still trying to decide what to do about the back of my card. leave it blank so notes can be written like appointment times, or fill it with a favorite picture or something. :) Or one photography subject on one side and a different one on the back. like senior/maternity.

What do you guys think? I never thought about having a business card as I dont have an actual business. But I thought it might be nice so people will remember my name. I have never designed a card before and this is my first try. Anything that you would change?

I'm with brett201 on this one. We'll see what the future holds.

Well, generally they are referred to as "card". As in "here's my card" or "do you have a card?" So it's really just a card. ;)

Here are my cards:

Hope these aren't among the terrible/horrendous cards out here. They're pretty popular when I give them out -- and believe it or not, they're somewhat of a gauge of the articulation of prospective clients. I mentally measure the amount of time it takes them to put the back of the card together and well..you know. Coming from a Public Relations background, making people think makes them remember you more. :lol:

Some people say I need a phone number on my card, but if someone absolutely needs it and cannot save it in their phone (as in, they don't have a mobile phone readily available or don't want to), the cards are matte and can be easily written on with a ballpoint pen.
