Garey who did you use to print the cards with? I need to use a company so I can have a simple card on hand as well.

I used Vistaprint, look for coupons online and make sure you try a few but clear the cache I think I got 5000 of them for $30-35, coated front

for those of you who ordered your cards through UVcards, how long did it take to get them roughly from the day you put in the order?

Asked designer to work on a logo for me, so that will be a few days....

as far as vista print goes, I use them for my events cards that go in race packs because they're cheep but i'm going with someone else for the ones i hand out because my last few orders were messed up in some way and just didn't look all that great :/

Have a target audience for your card. Something tells me you will make far more money by being paid to shoot maternity, babies, portraits, weddings, special events than finding people to buy photos of airplaines yet your card is covered by images of airplanes.

As someone would would receive your card, I would at first glance think you are more into shooting planes than people, so why should I hire a plane photographer? I'd go find one that specialized in shooting people!

Here's mine, looks pretty bad on the scan with all the artifacts but actually looks great in person.
What do you think?

Well i'm hoping this is what my cards will look like. I'm not sure if its done yet... Right now the back in blank but I may put something on the back....just not sure what yet. Ideas? I know I'm going to update my email and web address once I upgrade my zenfolio account. I figure, simple is better and I like the "clean" look. What do you guys think?

Note to everyone. When making a card like mine...

IMAGE NOT FOUND
HTTP response: NOT FOUND | MIME changed to 'image/png'


... and printing with MOO, really exaggerate the opacity on the bg numbers. I forgot that these are printed digitally and not screenprinted or press printed. I had a 10% opacity difference and it wasn't enough. The BG numbers didn't print out. However the rest did and it still looks incredible. Thankfully I put my number twice on the card.

Old post but I really like this design.

I currently have the luxe cards as well, but I don't think I will reorder them. Most people get confused and tries to pull the card apart thinking it is two cards...

Call it whatever "hip" name you want "networking card", it's still a business card!
