    The place that prints mine does them on a 14pt stock with UV coating. Seeing what the cards look like that get kicked back for bad addresses, I think the UV coating really does help the cards hold up to the post office's processing machines and still reach the prospect looking good.

    Horrible designs. You will get negative calls.

    Pay someone to design it and use stock photos.

    If you aim a little higher in terms of target market, you'll find you're working less and making more money.

    There are some GREAT books on graphic design for us normal folks by an author named Robin Williams. Pick up a copy of "The Non-Designer's Design Book" and you'll learn a lot. Or, for the next one, PM me and I can hook you up with one of my graphic designers.

    Koster, your post card isn't bad nessesarily, but with all due respect, its just a picture with you're name and number on it. It takes more than JUST a picture to catch some ones attention. Like previously stated, get in touch with a graphic designer they know what catches the eye in terms of color, placement and much more. Like I said the postcard isn't bad, but it could be a lot better.
