Re: Which Business Card ?

It's really difficult to choose, with the varying subjects that you take photographs of it may well be worth having different cards for different potential clients

Re: Which Business Card ?

I'd go for number two. Nicely neutral subject, and mono makes it stand out. It also complements your web-site.

The others might give the impression that you have a speciality that is not what potential customers are looking for.

Re: Which Business Card ?

I think they are all good. As mentioned by others, according to who you are marketing to, has an influence on the card you use.

Re: Which Business Card ?

Good idea, but if you are going to use a standard size card, I think the images on the back might be too small. Some people might find them difficult to see.

I was always a big Colin Chapman fan. (Owner/designer of Lotus racing cars for the uninitiated). His philosophy was 'Add lightness and simplicate'. I have tried to apply this principal to most things with more sucess than failure. (In my eyes, anyway).

What I'm trying to say is whatever you choose, keep it simple. Less is more.

Can see scenario now in car trip :-

Wife: "Graham, do you not feel removing the doors was a bit excessive darling & don't you think the car looked a bit more wlecoming with a dashboard & door trims ? "
