    If you are having a printer print these for you, you should make the entire card full color (maybe different color background, different colored text, etc). It will cost the same but make it look much better.

    If you are doing this yourself, lose the full color pic and add a simple graphic and use something other than white card stock.

    In both cases it will make it look much better.

    I agree with the above. lose the small full color pic.

    It looks fine enlarged, but it will be way to small for anyone to notice. I agree use the picture as a background image and use a type of print to show off the information. If you do, get it professioanlly digital printed. This isn't the best for printing, but better than home. The real way to go is the use of PMS colors in a logo so you can use it on cards, letterhead, envelopes, hats, shirts, etc...and it will look the same always. Watch out though..stick to 1 or 2 colors only...gets expensive

    My suggestion would be to have individual cards for the owners rather than having both of your names on the same card. I think it would portray a more professional image.

    5 hours of design for that! lately it seems as if I'm the "Simon Cowell" of Lawnsite, but those cards are boring. They lack any semblance of professionalism and look as if you decided to start a business last night and whipped up those cards in 5 minutes. Sorry to be so harsh, but this isn't a support group it's a site for professionals and all the opinions that come with it. Keep trying.
