Ok, I think I have my final design for my next batch of cards. I am currently out, so these need to be printed quickly.

Any suggestions? I'm concentrating on automotive photography work right now, and had a photo-book printed up as a portfolio. This is the front and back of my proposed card, and the image matches the front of my portfolio.

Not sure I like the "logo". It looks too busy to me.

Yep, I agree. It looks like a mess of characters not clean or designer.

Here's what I'm planning on ordering tonight- let me know if i screwed something up, there's still time to ask the designer for changes :)

We're doing spot UV on everything but the dark grey and white of the backgrounds

I just ordered some cards from Zazzle during a sale. Two thumbs down, would not recommend. It's definitely true in this case ... You get what you pay for. Even though I ordered the most expensive / thickest stock, it is still cheap looking. Sorry I don't have a picture of them to post.

For anyone thinking of using Moo, I wouldn't hesitate to use them again. The customer service I received was beyond anything I've ever gotten.

I ordered cards and when they arrived, I was not happy with how they looked compared to how I expected them to look. Completely my fault. A quick live chat session and I was given a discount code to cover the cost of a new batch. Received those and I am more than happy. Well worth the extra expense.

So I ordered from Moo. This was my maybe 5th or 6th order in the past 3 years. I used the 25% sale and ordered cards, postcards, luxe cards and mini cards.
Only to realize I misspelled on all of them. Got $370 worth of stuff completely useless.
I called them the other day to explain the situation and since the sale is over I politely asked if I can get the 25% discount again.
They are re-printing everything again for free. That was an error on my side and there is no way they could have known since the name was misspelled.
Yes its expensive but its worth it.

Your design is all over the place, not sure where to look. You have more text (snd bigger text) showing you have the same name on social websites than telling what you do. :confused:

Really loving your cards. These are spot on for your specialty area, and you've shown excellent restraint and/or taste. How'd the printed versions turn out? I'd like to see how the spot UV treatment came out. Sometimes smaller/thinner text can be hit or miss with that.

Okay, what do you think?

This sample has room left for bleed.

The look is nice and simple, and it has a very approachable feel. What will be on the back? If you don't already have plans, you might consider moving your logo to the back, and go very clean and simple on the front with just your info and name. If you want a tie-in, perhaps bring the feather onto the front in an abstract or secondary way, such as tinted dark grey, and bleeding off the card. The texture is very low-key, which is nice, but it might be almost too little. It borders on looking accidental rather than purposeful. Maybe bump the density up a tad bit?

Hmm, maybe more like this? I might need to find a different chalkboard texture. I use the chalkboard in a lot of my copy, including my website and mini-session cards.
