This is mine, done up in Photoshop. I had done a self-portrait mosaic style project before I made this & lifted the paint splats from that project. All of the textures & images are examples of my work, on a textured background that seemed fitting. Personally, I really dislike just plain, white-backed cards, so I added the back, but always leave space for people to write! Some people like to make notes, like, "Good portfolio," or "Like their products," when they meet you, so leave them space for that.

The front of my card, normally, my last name would be below the first part of my name, in the same size & font, & my phone number would be below my site (which no one should go to till further notice, lol).

The back, like I said, I like to use a cool back, & leave space.

For what it's worth, I was at a big theatre conference this spring & won a drawing of your business card, one of the corporate guys running the drawing complimented my card, in front of a whole mess of people. Grin And the production managers I've met all seem to like it, too! I'm planning on revamp-ing it soon, though.

This is my business card, this is a little old and I actually had to edit it before I had them printed (my website address is wrong... derrrrr).  My format includes the bleed area, and so they cut off just at the edges of the pink lettering (so that "sweater eyes" literally takes up the entire card).


Ill weave your names into my ribcage; lock your hearts inside my chest.
Regain the passion I once carried; do away with all the rest.
I tore the sickness from your bodies; smashed its head against the bricks.
I made a castle from its bones that you may always dwell in it.

Browse around a store that has lots of business card designs like Zazzle. No, I don't make any profit telling you that. http://www.zazzle.com/businesscards

You may google for 'Free Business Card Templates' and select the one you like, make sure its a .psd file.

If you are into photoshop, you may easily edit it, else you may contact a web designer who'll do it for you Smiley

Here are some,

my very first ones i made "for free"; i used the business card-templates in Microsoft Office's Word and printed out like 30, and printed out a back that was white with the text "embroidery, knitting, crafts" or something (in Finnish) and glued the back and front together and used the laminating machine at the office that we get to use for free Grin now i have these "for free" cards, ie. i had to pay for a blank backside (for free there would be an ad for the company that printed the cards) and for the delivery. well, it's an european service, so it would not help you Smiley

I get mine from moo because you have the choice of having a different image on the back of every single card! So I have examples of my photographs and crafts on the backs and this is the front. I've since added my mobile number to the bottom!:
