About to print lots of business cards. Square shape. Which do you prefer?
This is the front of the card.
One on the left is tiny bit smaller.
Ignore the crooked borders.

Of those 2 options? The one on the right with the thinner border


Cheers, Damien

Good luck finding a printer capable of trimming these "dead balls on". Most likely the border will come out uneven. Consider a more pragmatic design.

The R looks a little odd. Would you consider the diagonal part of the R to come out of the belly of the R rather then the intersection of the vertical, diagonal and the round part?

Personally, neither works for me, but if you really like these, I'd pick the one on the right.

What are you trying to say with your business card design? Looking at it I have no idea what type of photography you do.

Are these the actual cards? How do that say who you are? I immediately thought LightRoom

I would't do a border that close to the bleed. You're trusting the cut is going to be absolutely perfect on every card. If it isn't those cards will appear crooked.

I don't like the square. Doesn't seem functional to me.

I agree with @texkam and @kjonnnn

I don't like either. Looks just like the logo for Lightroom. I doubt any printer is going to cut it 100% correctly on all sides.

That is going to be tough trimming with the thin borders.
