I think "Youth Sports Photography....." needs to be right justified with the info in the blue patch.

Any other suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks for looking! :smile:

I like the vibrant primary colors. The only suggestion I would make is to somehow find a way to get a sample photo on the card as well, to catch the viewer's eye

I think it works Dennis. A photo would be nice but I don't think it's a must.
The most important thing is a Logo that folks will recognize as soon as they
see it and know it's you. I had 3 marketing folks tell me that when I redid
my logo a few months ago.

I try and keep things as simple as possible. My cards are printed on both
sides with additional info on the back. The front is very simple.

I thought about that; however, a picture of which sport? :redface: If I choose, say, soccer, then might someone looking for pictures of swimming overlook me? I don't know. I'm just an ol' man with a camera. :biggrin:

Thanks for your input!

i find it too busy
imo business cards need to be short and sweet with a solid background and no graphics, mine have company name, website, my name and phone number in bold and easy to read fonts that stand out against the background

I'm on Mark's side here, anyone using their face as a billboard doesn't need a fancy business card :biggrin:

Short and sweet and to the point. They'll remember you better..

Leave it to me to be different.....:smile:. This year, instead of cards with little info on them, I pass out half-page flyers at the games that have all of the info on them. It allows me to work the sidelines much more efficiently. :wink: I swap the photo depending upon the sport. They cost slightly more than cards, but to me it's worth it.

Please excuse the poor P&S version. (no scanner)
