Don't worry about putting an address on the card. You want it to be simple and attractive. Your address will be on your invoice. All I have on mine is Large logo, tag line and name and phone number on the front and list of services on the back.

just a thought... Leave only your logo on the front of the card. All the rest of your info on the back with enough room to write stuff down.

You may not have time to go check a PO box, but potential customers may not take the time to learn the area you are servicing. A business card is one of your sales tools, a tool to help you get business. Somebody said the address will be on the invoice. That means somebody is already at a customer stage. One major use of your card is to get people to the customer stage. Without an address, how does anybody know where you work, what area you service (an assumption the address implies the service area, which may or may not be the case, but usually is the case)?

Making a business card is not just for the sake of having a nice looking card. It serves a purpose, primarily to get you new business.

Adding the email address does not bring anything new to the card. If somebody uses the web address, they will undoubtedly find a place to send an e-mail. The e-mail address here is redundant.

Having the geographical information is very important, having nothing to do with a PO box. I'm doubting anybody will use the area code and the exchange to find your location in a reverse path.

I like the black..resembles your truck and trailer. I've done my share of cards and found it best to keep it simple..Name of company, Logo, phone number, website. Makes people dig around your website to see what you can offer and also send you an email.

I have my e-mail address on my cards, but I have no web site. In your case, it probably isn't necessary, as somebody can go to your website.

We have two company's running, so one side is Green Bay and the other is Husker. I don't like the gray that showed up. It should have been all black. Also have to change the period on the Husker card. It's on the wrong side.
