I don't like the logo, and I think it's better to just have one web address on the card. If they can find the gallery through the main site, then I'd just put the main site on the card and leave it like that. I also think it needs to be more personal. Put your name on it, and I always prefer to have a personal email address to contact someone at. When I see info@wherever.com (external link)... it makes me not even want to email that person.

Well I have to say that I agree with Ledrak, every single word of it actually.

Not fan of the logo, but that's personal preferences and I'll skip that one.
Having several domain names is not a good idea. Use one, and either link to a second from there or just place the gallery on the main domain (why not?)
I think every single person in the business should have their own card with their own name and address on it, it's much more personal and professional.

But those are my own opinions...

The card should be 'personal' even if you have several people working for the same company. Business cards are cheap, so why not get one with your name (at least). I don't like the idea of 'info@...." either.

I like the colors, but I'm not sure about the logo. I also agree with the two websites. Pick one, preferably the '.net' one.

EDIT: I would just delete all of the text on the back. Nothing wrong with a blank card on the back.

Not a fan of the card, and not keen on the tone of your posts either. Are you wanting a critique or is the real point of the post just to rant about designoutpost?
