    Here is the front in progress, Still need to lay out the back.

    Does the front make you want to see the back or are you ready to hire on the spot?

    Or would you just throw it in the rest of the trash?

    I'd toss it.... :laugh:

    actually, I'd change the font colors... too dark. Black and blue.... like a bruise.

    Go with yellow and orange or something.... make it pop....

    I can design them myself, the colors are not set, I was asking about the layout, if that design would create a need to relax and let someone else do the work.

    I think it just looks a little busy on the front of the card. I like the idea though but you might want to calm it down some.

    When I do cards I just put my logo on the front. Clean, Simple, and to me it seems intriguing enough to flip it around.

    I will say, I like the pics you have choosen. Nice angles, looks professional.

    I'll let you know after I have a couple more marketing classes next semester...
    I agree with the font color suggestions. The text is kind of lost on top of the pics. I think I would do without the pic in the middle since Varsity is so big and that's what you want people to focus on. I designed a flier (which I haven't used yet since I'm still in school most of the year and I don't have time for more accounts) that had a man trying to crank a push mower. He had sweat running down his face, oil and gas cans sitting around, and he looked like he was ready to call me. The flier covered all the basics--attention getter/problem, solution (prompt to call for services), contact info, and immediate action step (limited new accounts being accepted--call today).

    I'd say the picture of the little walk behind needs to go. That was the first thing I noticed, and I also agree with the font color comments. But keep in mind you don't want it to look like a construction zone with a bunch of bright orange and yellows.

    I disagree, Summit. I think people will see the push mower and will be reminded of how much they hate to push mow their yard. Maybe I'm wrong.
