The other picture seems to be the most popular in the office as far as potential cards I've thrown around here.


I like the font... I'm just curious why are you including the black box on the side.. It takes away from the image, IMHO.. You can always just print that information on the back of your card... Most all sites I believe that print cards allow for printing on the back too, and it wasn't that much more expensive.. Not even sure if I paid extra for that.. I used VistaPrints and my own design..

Thanks for the help everybody. I think it is an improvement over the original design. Eventually you just have to make a decision and I have gone with this as my final:

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/40000-44999/40718/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_834589.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/40000-44999/40718/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_834589.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

Done. Good idea. Helps take the Jason below the waveline too.

People don't care about the pretty picture, they want your contact details. I know it sucks, but it is a fact. You have 4-6 seconds to get the message across.

Name - large bold font
phone number larger bold font
website smaller normal font

In my case the patient has already been walking through my "gallery" and asked a nurse "who took those photos?" or "where can I get those photos?". At that point the only message I need to get across is my email. I am not looking to hand these out around town as much.

The main thing that sticks out to me is that your email address is upside down for that type of layout. Business cards with an area on the edge for text are usually for convince rather than style; when someone puts your card in their wallet. This allows them to see your information without taking out your card. As illustrated in the picture below.

The way you have it now, your information (email address) is upside down. I would consider flipping the information and possibly putting other contact info in that section.

Allllrighty, here are a few options. One with your favorite font and 2 with other fonts I thought you might enjoy.

I have the indd package file and if you like them, I can send it. Photo would need to be relinked to the edited one, but I figured this would work for just the showing.

This was FUN thanks for letting me play :)

Since your pictures itself are so amazing, I don't see any point of trying to be creative with fonts, backgrounds, shapes (usual business card stuff). Your name and your pictures speaks well for itself, so here are some quick takes.


Yeah, man. These are it.

do you not have a phone number or a web address?

Yes and no. I have a phone number, but I don't want to give it out to patients who are also clients. That could lead to trouble. I do not have a web site at this point.

Thanks TC! I like the Papyrus one. :)
