I had permission from Gunther's mom (Spoofan) to use one of her photos in creating some business cards for the salon I work at. The ones the owner had were kind of bland..

I think this is the layout I have decided on..i'm using Publisher..let me know what you think!

Also, thank you spoofan for taking such wonderful pictures and for allowing me to use one!

Is this going to be an online card or one you're going to get printed? I love the colors and text, though if it's a card it would be easier to view horizontally instead of vertically. Just my input! Looks great though!

It is one I will get printed.

I tried a few different pictures going both ways and I always went back to the vertical design.

I don't know why it just seems to work better with the pictures I looked at.

I like it a lot. Will you have an appointment reminder on the back? Also with the stylish vertical look I would get glossy! And Gunther is a great choice!

That's the only bad thing about the color and high gloss..I can't write on them.

BUT I did think about getting some of those small white label type stickers..writing the appointment on that and sticking it right on the back. I think it would work out perfectly.

I have checked on prices and found a guy online that can do 1000 for me on high gloss cardstock for $15 and of course shipping is expensive but total it's around $30 for 1000 cards and he will do bulk discounts as well.

I used to do business cards and such when I worked at Office Depot..or at least I would order them and I remember full color cards being much more expensive..but that was also.. 6 years ago.

Thank you for the comments. I think Gunther is a great choice. It also gave me a reason to flip through her photos of him..what a beautiful boy! His personality shines in every single photograph she has of him.

I like it! You could also get some magnets made for your clients to put on the fridge. Lord knows I have the vet's magnet next to the magnet for the dentist and groomer too!

OR... check out PoodlePrints.com! Once you price your upload fees, I am very competitive. Take a look at my business cards "Create Your Own" pricing options.

You can get glossy on the front with a matte back. I like the vertical layout. You did a really good job! Only suggestion is that you might consider framing the picture. I think it helps give it a foundation.

I think it's perfect! Love the photo, layout, background and font. You did a super job. That card will really stand out, and people will remember it.

overnightprints.com is my go to- you can put the uv covering (I think that's what they call 'gloss' on one side and their blacks are AMAZING and the quality is top notch

I really like the layout/design. I would go with glossy on the front and matte on the back too. I use overnight prints also. You can design a back as well as the front so that you could have your appointment info there.

The only think with high gloss is that finger prints show on it.

/i love the design, and as others have said Gunther is a great model!
