Gotta say.. I like #4 too

..but.. I had to do some mixing and matching... :)

For some reason I don't like the "M" in the #4 typeface.. try and see of the "M" from #5 wull work? (I know ,.. dumbe suggestion)

Also,. I like the "Custom Car Photography" typeface from #9....

Do you think it would go o-kay with #4?

I like 4, 5, 6 and the last one, but it was hard to decide, all are very good. Are you going to put one of your pictures on the card as well? I think it would look good with one of your photos on the other side, or something similar.

thanks
I think i'm going to combine 4 and 9

if anyone else starts looking for business cards. my friend showed me this web site tonight. http://businesscards.c​om (external link)
go inside and click on 2 color cards and an editor comes up and tou can make your own cards. I messed with it for a few hours, it's alright, needs more fonts.

I like #6 personally.

I think it MUST have a pic personally. Others might not agree, but a lot of business cards have pics on now, so a photographers card must do surely?

Even if its a greyscale watermark - doesn't need to be very detailed.

Remove the '-'

I like #7 best, followed closely by #2, however I would remove the dashes before and after the name.

I agree about the pic. It would seem sort of odd that a photographer would have a biz card without some sort of picture.
Also I think that your link should just be www.thectrlz.com (external link) forget the http://.

On your website I would say click on the picture to enter because some people may think that is it. I would also put a title on the 1st page and change the font of your e-mail.

I like number 3, but...

Custom kern the lettering in the name. Notice how the letters for MILL have various widths between the letters. Ugly! But the font is very nice. It's bold, yet does not yell at the reader. I think it makes for a great layout font.

You don't need the top line either. Strip that out and just keep it one colour printing. "Custom Car" pretty well sums up Classics * Hot Rods * Lowriders * Exotics * Imports... and it takes less room.

You could use that space for your motto, or a statement. Or even put Custom Car Photography at the top, then Jakeb Miller in the middle, then the contact info at the bottom....

If you wanted to go fancy here, do the name in bald relief (raised lettering no ink) and leave the ink for the Custom Car Photography and the contact info...

I agree with Penguin. It needs a picture of your work. Text doesn't get you far these days.

If you are worried about printing costs, I recommend doing it on your own printer. Card Stock is availabe at office supply stores.
