Pay a pro to design the card. Its worth the 200 bucks. There is a big difference between a pro design and something me or you could do our selves.

I know your probably set in stone with the front, but if it were me, i would change some things. First, i dont mind the generic pictures, is shows people what you do, with simple professional images. Secondly, the white box with your name, logo, info, and contact info, i would change to blend into the design more. For example, i would darken the images a little bit, and make your logo lighter, and fade the background a little bit so you can see your wordage without having the square box. Thrid, if im not mistaken, i see 5 different fonts. I would try to make your Logo and phone number one font, and then all your other words in another font, and put your contact info(ie emails/websites) in italics.

I am working on my direct mail campaign right now, but i really want to show you what i am talking about. If i have some time i will try to re-design the front of your card and send you a pdf of it. I want to help you get the best results. I have taken a lot of college Marketing and Advertising courses and you really want to avoid a lot of different fonts, and avoidable boxes on your design. Your design is so colorful, make your wordage blend like you do on your trucks. Make a Brand for yourself.

Did you put in your bleed and trim mark lines? Almost looks like some of your text is too close to the edge and might end up being trimmed off on the finished card, or are you posting the proofs they emailed back?
