Adobe Illistrator is the choice of most designers when designing logos and pritn materials.... but yes I had a graphics designer do my final design with much input from me

Maybe one of the graphic designers can chime in here and correct me if I'm wrong.

Isn't it a cardinal sin to use more than three different fonts at a time? Some of these cards have up to six or more fonts and it looks pretty bad. I'm not trying to be rude but I think a photographer's card should shine in the visual department. There's just way too much going on with alot of these. Maybe it's just my minimalist style but a busy card seems tacky to me.

I hope I didn't offend anyone, maybe I just have poor taste.

I'll be sure to post my card as soon as it's done and feel free to rip it to shreds.

Another thing they said in my GD course when we were covering fonts is that not only should you keep your font changes to a minimum (i.e. 2 maybe 3 tops) but it also looks better if you don't mix more than one of the same family (ie using two serif fonts together looks worse than one serif paired with one sans serif).

I have wallets made with different images that I've taken. They look similar to Jason's card. I have ones made with senior portraits, infants, children and etc. My logo stays the same but the pictures change.

Just an idea

I do that too! Mostly because I can't make a final decision on an image (I seem to have a different favourite every week ;-)a ) My cards are always changing.

I agree that having your own picture on your card can be cool. My reasoning was twofold:
a) when I hand them the card with my picture, and my picture looks a whole lot better than I actually do, they go "Wow, if you can make yourself look that good you can make me look good too!" ;)
b) when someone passes your card on to someone else, they at least have a sense of what you look like, a face to associate. Then when they meet you, they recognize you and there's that thought "Oh, here's the photographer!" instead of "Oh, who's this strange person?"
Just my reasoning!

That's a good idea - like a realtor's card (only more creative and esthetically pleasing :-) :-) )
