Wireburner,

You have received very good advise.

...but I believe with today's printers and selection of card stock a person can print cards at home- this does depend on the quality of your printer. and print them as you need them.


Come Christmas time just change the "We'll fix it" to " We'll make it" and swap the red for green.



One other note is that you don't really need the www. before your website address on a card.

I will just add few things about graphic design since I was in graphic school.Basic thing is we read from left to right.When we look something like page or picture our attention goes from upper left corner and goes towards lower right corner .If we put important information on strategic places eye will notice it.For example you don't want to put something very important in lower left corner.Also there is color.Here I will tell you story I remember from school.In the shopping mall marketing analysts were giving free samples of the same type of detergent.But in three different boxes.One box was predominantly blue ,another box was predominantly red and third box had balanced amount of red and blue on white background.They were asking people to fill up the survey for free detergent.Remember detergent was the same in three different packaging.People respond like this;predominantly blue box -didn't wash good enough.Predominantly red box detergent destroyed the clothes and only box with balanced amount of colors was good.You can look at a country's flags from graphic design point of view.USA ,Great Britain and France flags are balanced.Japans flag is too white ,Canadian flag is too red.Check colors of the SFT forum pages they are balanced.So much for now.

Something I noticed about yoru cards. Or maby I misread it.
"Chris Jones & HORSE shoe art "? I assume your Chris.. but who is Horse shoe art? is that a business partner? if not shouldnt it be Chris Jones, Horse shoe artist? or Chris Jones Horse shoe welder? or Chris Jones skip a line on the card then put Horse Shoe art?
You get my point?
