It's about time to order new business cards.

My main work is in pruning, and the cards are pretty nice. Green marble gloss card stock with gold foil.

It came to mind to simplify text and put both businesses and websites on one card. But the more I think about it, it seems better to pay extra and have a separate card for photography and a separate card for the tree care.

Any of you have two different businesses, one photography? And do you have different cards for each?

Also, do any photographers prefer brochures, since cards are so common place?

:cool:

One business per card. Your card should say you are a pro, Bobs photography and lawn service says that you dont have any confidence (and perhaps competence) in one or the other.

It could seem that way.

Irrigation and Tree Care are two entirely different fields, but would probably be a perfect match together on one card.

But I think something green trade and photography would be an odd mix.

One could lead to the other. You would just be setting business up for the following year.

Shampoo sounds like an unfortunate name for a hair product.
