I have never done it, but was wondering if it's worth putting it on there. I doesn't make a difference IMO.

I don't get it, what's the point? Why does a client need your business license number?

You dont need to, online licensed contractors or any other licensed profession would need to have that on there. Photography isnt a licensed profession... Ex. Massage Therapist would need license number on all forms of advertising... Goes county by county state by state...

I vote no. It will just make the card busier. Do go for a nice photo card from the like of Color24.com $29.50USD

I don't get it either, the client is interested in the photography not your license. It's just I've seen someone do it, but only one of them was a photographer... To me it doesn't add any professionalism to the card or make you better in any way :-)

Thanks for the info Cory.

He gets it from other industries. Such as plumbers and builders. They have to show thier liscence numbers on just about everything. But is is really a certification number. Not really the business liscence number. It is pointless for photography as the client does not need it for anything.
