Feedback On My Busines Card Please...
 
I'm new here, but this forum looks like a good place to receive advice. I'm having a guy create a business card for my online sports card business I do on my own. Here is the card below...plz be honest!

Thanks!

From the headline "Brady's Sports Cards", it doesn't summarize why a prospect would want to do business with you. I like that you included multiple means of response on the card, so that different people can respond in different ways.

Is the back of your business card blank? If so, place some testimonials on the back to lend some credibility to your name.

Change the headline to something like, "Sports Cards Of All Your Favorite Athletes All For 1 Low Price". I think this headline would incite a reader to learn more.

Hi Brady! I've got to agree with Daniel. Business card is your mini rep and it needs to convey the message. Also, I'd recommend to make an emphasis on your website address since this is after all an online business. Personally, I like light colors and white space, but it is a design preference.

Good luck! :welcome2:

Hey Brady,

The thing that jumps out at me is your email address.

Having email "at hotmail" versus [email protected].

Do you see how much more power you have when your email address is "at <Your Domain>"?

And the cool thing is, you have a domain - and Google will give you free mail handling. Just check out "Google Apps" at http://google.com/a

Cheers,
Tim

I wish I could get it to show on here...can you guys see the new logo?? It just shows a red x....thanks for the feedback though!

I can see the images you posted. I'm not sure why you are not able to.

I would change the black text to another color. It is hard to read. Use light colors on dark backgrounds.

Sorry to be late on this one... just got back in today. Also sorry, but I am not fond of the design.

I am not sure why, but seems that small business owners are hung up on logos, trying to become a faceless, nameless corporation... while all the stats out there prove consumers want to deal with a real person... a person they can get to know, trust and like.

I think the card needs a USP to tell people why they need to shop with you instead of any other company in your market.

Hope this helps!

The revised business card is much better. It takes into account the principle that the logo is one of the most important element of a business card.
