thanks for the advice! :) I love gotprint, never thought to ask for custom work.

np they were printing half sized (moo size) cards for me long before they added them to their page

Are you married to that was address? It isn't easy for someone to remember without having your card.

And as nice as that image looks on a computer, will a print lab be able to print such a variety of shades of grey or is it going to come out looking very dark with less detail than seen on a screen? Something to think about since print dynamic range is less than what a computer screen can show.

The logo is okay design wise. But your contact details are all over the place. You might want to align them, and maybe put your logo in the centre. Could also use a better font.

Yep. It looks very busy-looking right now and not a big fan of the font.

Thanks for the info on all this. I'll see what I can do to clean it up a bit.

More ideas for you:

1. Maybe change the "Email", "Phone", "Web" etc to just "E", "P" or "M" for mobile & "W".
2. Lose the "http://". You might even want to cut the Facebook link to just "FB.com/IndianPeaksPho​tography.
3. Leave some space between text and image if you want to keep the logo in the same position (although ill suggest not)
4. Bold your name.

And one card that is misaligned. Did some autopsy on it.

And yes, they are doing a full reprint of my cards just because of the one misaligned card.

Agreed. The text does not seems to be well placed and is all over the place, including nearly touching your logo. And there is far too much text on your card. Do you really need the full web address for your facebook page? It's lengthy and most businesses say "find us on facebook" or just put the facebook logo. If you search for the business name on facebook you should find it especially if you use your logo on the site.

Can anyone tell me the name on the font used on the front of these cards?

I don't know, but I don't like it. The spacing makes the i and the l's way too difficult to differentiate.
