I have gotten several checks without sending a invoice because my address was on my card. Customers know the price they drop a check in the mail.

It's fine. I like to keep business cards simple. Here's one of mine when I lived in MD. It didn't even have my name on it. It was a bright green, simple, in your face, way to get my phone number in the hands of those that may want their grass cut.

Just curious....Has anybody thought about adding a "QR" code to their business card? I don't know the actual definition of this but it is where you can scan it with a bar code scanner on a smart phone and add it to your contacts with a push of a button...freakin awesome!

no business cards should be basic forms of contact information.

always bet on black.

love the cards. Your websites will tell them all your services if they're interested. The black shows great. Never thought of not being able to write on the back. Love the more basic designs. The full color cards look nice, but for my business they would think i charge too much. The full color are nice but i deal with more low middle class homes.Great design.

I'm not arguing with you on that. All I know is, I had one with a QR code handed to me recently and it was the best thing for adding the information to my contacts. I thought it was great, but I am familiar with these codes and know what they do. Positive or negative, this is one thing the world is going to.

I like those cards...either white or black...maybe black with a white back like somebody said.

I think it's good to have your town on there, or at least a general area. However, I would never put my address right on the card unless I had a P.O. Box.

I don't want anybody knowing where I live. That could present a problem.
