    I saw something similar in the main forum about a week ago - but i want to see what you guys have. Ill probably post my design tonight, but im still making changes. I want to run it by a graphic designer first.
    Also, where are you guys ordering from? Ill be looking for double sided glossy cards.

    Just make sure they're simple and effective. Gradients and drop shadows are a nono.

    depends on the press, my gradients/shadows look better on paper than on screen

    Don't like the fonts.
    Photo on back should fill up the entire card.

    1. Terrible colors
    2. Terrible font
    3. Terrible layout
    4. The photo should be good and it should be full bleed

    1. Its a "Miami Vice" theme - im pretty set on changing it
    2. Im not a graphic designer...i merely saw it as suitable and better than some emo cursive or paint splatter font. Suggestions?
    4. Im suprised you dont like the photo - but that one will probably stay anyway. Its easy to critique a photo from behind a monitor or without knowing the conext.

    Your context is worthless unless you're going to hand out a pamphlet with your business card.

    A guy was making them a while back, just asking for donations. I found the graphic and he made it look like a tile. I miss him.
