    Ibraham Hussein? Terrorist much?

    Font is just atrocious, you can barely read what it says. And on the back the "Your college life" "simplified" seem mismatched, like simplified is a few pixels higher than it should be

    I like it, but the fonts and name are hard to read.

    Your name is Husain, no one will come to you.

    No seriously, it is hard to read. The lay out and style looks good but no one likes the odd ball text. Go with a clean looking text style and it will look great.

    really? The font is hard to read? damn, I thought it was cool... I know I need to change the contact info font, I've heard from other people it was difficult to read...

    Simplified is on the same line as "your college life." I guess I should just drop them both down a few pixels.

    it's cool but people don't buy into it. People shouldn't have to look at it twice to see what it says. You can use fonts that will give it a unique look but still be easy to read. The over all style looks good, don't over do it.

    The font with your contact info does not go with the card very well, IMO. Also, you might want to have your name printed on the card.

    I honestly don't know. I have a company that a good friend went through, and it wasn't too expensive, but definitely not something I'd call cheap.

    I don't know why you're advertising your college blog on a business card. I could see if it was a portfolio blog or something, but :dunno:

    fix the font and it won't be too bad at all,
    it is too hard to read, esp for a business card

    The design is not bad just make the font something you can read.
