I like the black but we ran into this probelm a few years ago, You cant write anything on the back of them. And everyone wants to write on the back. Just something to keep in mind.

I agree with the above. Two solutions is have a white back or have estimate cards/sheets also on hand. Did you have studio 211 in the shakopee area design your logo? Reason I ask is I had them do some work and they gave me something very similar. I choose something different but with your name it looks good.

no address. looks good if your doing alot of commercial and its just for reference. if your doing alot of residential you may want to add services you provide, it they see it on the card they know and are more likely to call. JMO.

Put a dash instead of dots in the phone number. Everybody knows what a dash means. Older, non-hip folks may not recognize that as a phone number when it has dots. You want to make it as easy as possible to contact you.

yes i like the white back idea.

i might change the # to dashes also i might put the www. in front of the site and i think i will add my town on there.

i want to keep my list of services off the card. if they want more info they can call or check out my web site.

I really like those i black. I agree on adding an address. That makes it handy when people ask for it to mail you a check, etc. Also a really good point about the color and not being able to write on the back. I know I write on mine all the time. Nice place to jot down the prices for the customer for what I'll just call an "informal estimate" lol
