    I like the two on the ends, I see the are the same but diff colors. It might be cheaper to make yourself if you go with the white one, but the black does look nice. Make sure to get the laminated ones too ;). We have people always commenting on how our cards stick out and are easy to find because of it.

    I'm a minimalist when it comes to design, but if I had to choose one I'd choose the right one. The other ones have bad color combinations. My opinion, of course.

    that was the wrong word :) If you are making them, put them on really glossy paper

    this reminds me of american psycho... Great movie.
    I would go with the 2nd one and make it better choice of colors like paul said. Simple and not too much business going on.

    out ot those options the first. However i also agree that business cards should be black and white and straight to the point.

    Another vote for minimalism here. Out of the choices though, the far right would be mine.

    Fantastic film :)

    The 3rd one. As before, minimalism and clear information are key. Color's don't always translate well so a more black and white setup might be prudent.

    We have a pretty good colour laser printer at work, it comes out just as you see it on screen.

    If i made a b/w card it would look just like everyone elses. thats to say forgettable.

    If colour - perhaps max 3. I like the fonts on the far right the best. Looks slick Lancer.
