I like #4 the best. Simple clean shot with lot's of interest.

As for the horses. The shots don't really transfer into a small shot too well. Both backgrounds are rather busy. Perhaps a simple wall, field, or sunset background for either.

Being semi-retired, I don't need a lot of them, so I target them & print them 3-up on a 4X6 pic. Here are 3 different ones:

Nice cards, Frank. The targeted cards, printed in small batches, is probably the way I'll eventually go. I'll never be distributing them in large quantities.

PHotoGuy-great idea, your card is SMART! its like a comp card for photographers *wink*I LIKE IT! Good font, too.

personal story here (everyone sit on the carpet and cross your legs indian style): i'm a weenie about telling people I do photography. In the early mornin' hours, I found the gumption to create a basic business card and elaminate it. I held on to the cards for weeks, too nervous to give them out. There was an op that I passed up, frustrated, I started handing out my card (oh what the hell) and VOILA, people actually called.

Should've done it sooner. :twisted:

Does anyone else have this pic stagefright, or am I truly, Queen of the weenies? :roll:

If we were potential customers, then we might have need to know contact numbers. However, since we are forum members here, there's a good chance that we would be competitors instead, so there is very little to be gained by giving out the numbers here.

I have a card on cardstock, and also made some photo cards as well for pregnancy portraits, as well as portraits, weddings, racing, etc. It is very inexpensive to do, and I can print as many or few as I wish. I made a template in Photoshop and make a JPEG of it and print it out at a lab. I just have to cut them. They are real photos, which is fun, and I get lots of referrals from them.

I posted two for you to look at, minus the contact info"
