    After discussing logos and business cards with a few members, and trying to answer some design questions, I mentioned I would upload my examples. These aren't final and printed yet, but they are getting close.

    C&Cs welcome. Enjoy.

    I like the colors and the swoop thing in the front. I went to visit your website but it was just something like a template example? Did I go to the right place?

    yeah the website is not functional yet. It's still being built. The site address has not been distributed yet either.

    Not this time, but I have in the past, with other photos/threads. BTW, I'm using Firefox 3.



    Looks good Mark!

    Consider having the orange as a Pantone instead of mag/yell screen - better chance of crisp white out lettering (fit issues). Also you could run the Pantone colour through your letterheadings/website, etc for consistency. Black screen for the grey should be fine - also will be 2 col business card not 3. The reflective tint always looks better as a digital image on the monitor and will not look as good on the printed product - better without IMO.
    I have been in print for 23 years and seen the results of many designs.

    One more comment from me - consider thermographic printing where the printed image is slightly raised and very tactile. They look and feel good and work very well for business cards - a notch above the 'usual'.

    It's actually going to be printed with metallic silver Pantone 877C and with UV coating on front and back on 16pt stock... So it should look sharp but we'll see.

    I like the logo, and the colors are fun.

    The line spacing between "social network" and "consulting" is off.

    I assume the white border gets cropped, except for the top of the 1st image?

    The cards look very nice, but I wouldn't say that you do "everything." Many potential clients need a specific thing done, and that's what they want to see on a card, but if you say you do everything they will either get confused and go elsewhere or figure you're so hungry for work that you'll do Anything for money.

    Just to give you an idea of what I mean. I went to show my photography portfolio to a potential client who made ceramic tea pots. I didn't have any pictures of tea pots in my folio, but I did have two pictures of ceramic mugs and bowls, which he loved. He thanked me for coming in, but he really wanted someone with experience photographing tea pots. It can get that silly out there.

    Have Fun,
    Jeff

    Yes, the leading is off for "social network" and "consulting" because they are the same subject. So reducing the leading between those two lines, different than the others, makes them go together in one idea/subject.

    There are bleeds around the card so the white space the extends to the edge of the card will be trimmed. These are the print files so I did not include a boundary to show the edge.
