Business cards

Having just bought an established business, I am trying to put my first ever marketing package together.

The standard format for any business card typically includes your name and occupation. When you have a small 3 man operation what do you generally put down as your occupation ?

Is it:-

John Doe -- Owner
John Doe -- CEO
John Doe -- Owner/Operator
John Doe -- Founder
John Doe -- President

or none of the above ?

Thanks

Owner.

Some of the titles are for corporations, the others are just corny.

Owner or no title.

I used to put "owner"....Now I am "general manager"......

Maybe it is corny but it applies really well to me. I don't like to tell people that I am the owner......I would rather have a little privacy.....

I was thinking about the title "Generalissimo for Life", but ultimately decided on no title.

FWIW,
I put down I speak English, list my insurance coverage, and the years as a resident of the state. And, the phone number should be the largest thing on the card, after all, that's all that matters

My title on business card reads: Robert Payer (Landscaper)

In my opinion this is humble and shows pride in trade.

Second pick would be: General Manager
