    You may have seen my other thread about my flyer, but this one's about my business card. I tried to keep it clean and simple. I'm 14 and I'm looking to make some money this summer.

    Hopefully you like!

    ide change the vertical lines between each service you offer ,
    to either these / or these - between each word

    I don't like it, it's hard to read and you don't need to make all the letters so large.

    I agree, the | between each service is a little confusing to look at. Some other symbol will look better. There is a lot of white space on either side of your phone number/Call block. A simple graphic like some grass or something related would fill it in and give a person a general idea of what you do even before reading the card. Make sure your phone number is large enough to be read on a card that's 2x3.25". It looks big here, but your image is about 10x bigger than an actual card would be. I would take out the "Call Logan!" line and make you phone number bigger, and maybe make the "Call for FREE estimate" a little bigger as well.

    Small, simple changes. You've got a great start.

    Looks good but I would tweak it a little...

    I would:

    1) reduce the font size of the & between lawn and garden.
    2) replace | with a bullet round or diamond.
    3) replace "call Logan" with just "call"
    4) replace "call for free estimates" with "free estimates"

    You can shorten all that to:
    Logan's lawn & garden
    Call Today for Free Estimates!

    Oh... I think your phone will ring :laugh:

    What Topsites just said is the perfect post. I would like to add to that for example; "yardwork". You list all these things...to say yardwork at the end is redundant.
    That's like saying we do dusting, vacuuming, wash walls, do windows, and and clean the bathroom and kitchen. Oh yeah,...we also do housework.
    Not to mention, we don't use the term "yard" in any professional term, anyway. I can elaborate a little more on that if you wish or need.
