looks good. The "big enough but small enough" saying has been over used but probably still effective. The type in some spots, especially under "landscapes and hardscapes" has a really small font, I would enlarge it a bit to make it more legible. Nice card though.

Youll have to find one that you like and fits your business model. The one you have is ok I guess, i just think it is used a lot already.

Why does your username and company names spell turf with two f's ?

Ok, to me the card looks generic. And I don't think you need a cutesy slogan. You need to get the phone to ring.

Use a picture of yourself. Drive home a reason for them not to toss your card on the dash of their pickup.

Maybe throw up an offer . . . something like if you call and mention this card 10% off your first mowing.

Also if you are president does that mean you are huge business. I have not heard of a lawn care business with a president.

do you have a site? I would use my email from my site, so it could be. brian@yoursite.com

To me that means you are more professional.

Another thing to consider would be to give them a time to call. And ensure them you will answer the phone at that time. And if they call at any other time they will get the answering machine.

This first all build trust that you hold up your end. And the next it set up a situation where they know they will get you on the phone. Which sometimes can be a problem.

I like the card... Not a big fan of the two F's in turf... I think a lot of people would think you just don't know how to spell.... Also, I agree with the above poster, remove president... Insert owner... Because that is what you are....

I'd also add a CCB Lic. # for the hardscapes.
