I, too, keep looking at that grass in the left corner! I was waiting for you to comment on it!I think you've received and incorporated many of the useful suggestions included within this thread. The Cafe can be such a powerful resource!
I like the idea of featuring an image on the card...especially when the card is being used for the purpose that you described. I use business cards for much the same purpose. I often meet people while shooting during my travels--and then hand them a card so that they can view the photos later. I feature one of my favorite images on the card...and that card invariably becomes a conversation piece. So, it serves that purpose, too.
So, I like the images you have featured---the lion and Justin with the cheetah. I think it is important to keep the cards simple and clean. I like that the text is aligned...and think it is important to be consistent with fonts.
If I were to nitpick...I would clone out the grass in the lower left portion of the card. The lion shot is powerful--yet my eye shifts to the grass!
Justin's card is definitely a conversation starter! I'm not sure how to accomplish it, but I would like to see the text placed in such a way that it isn't positioned over the cheetah. I'm not sure it that's possible. I'm envisioning perhaps scaling the photo down to free up some open space along the upper right of the card or placing all of the text elements in the upper left with perhaps a somewhat smaller font. Again, not sure if that's possible--but those thoughts are what come to mind.
This is the best solution. You have the domain and I love the name.Pleasant Travels is already used by a student travel agency it seems.
It might be risky to use this, I am not a legal expert.
You could go with Pleasant Photos and subtitle Travel Photography.
I second Vista Print...always had good luck with them.Thanks! I so appreciate all the help and patience!!!! Even I wanted this project to be done! Justin is thrilled and can't wait until I put in the order!
I usually use Vista Print. Any other suggestions for printing?
