It's about time for me to order more cards and I was thinking of changing them up a bit.

Does anyone list what they do on their cards? Front or back?

For instance if you do cookies or pies or catering in addition to cakes. What do you think of this idea? I appreciate your feedback on this. Thanks! icon_smile.gif

logo, name, title, adress, tel, website

Backside, logo only with reverse colors

Less is more. I've seen cards with so much text and just plain 'stuff' on them that one gets a headache reading them.

I have a store so my phone is a business phone.

I use both the front and back. On the front just the basic stuff (name, web address, phone number, log)

On the back I change it up a bit. I bought some sticky labels and I type up different things. For example with my orders I stick a business card with the order and on the back I attached a 'thank you sticker' with a special offer if they purchase from me again and ask them to leave me feedback on my website or to contact me if there is a problem. I have made other stickers for other things such as refer a client and save $$ on your next cake etc. With the stickers it gives you more room to change things up a bit.

Business cards are a good form of advertisment and I think using the back side is a great way to get more information out there. Not to much wording but enough to get the point across.

I am still working on mine..I dont have a phone on this one cause I am giving this to students and they will call for even how to mix a cake box.So now I tell them send me email messages..That works..But for cakes I definitively add a phone..
I used both sides. Put cakes on the back and use a shiny card..The white dotted line is not on the business card...is just the program..

I scanned my business card--(hope this isn't against CC rules), so you can get an idea. I think less is best--just the important info. I only do one side.

i just had some made, more to had out to my students though, but i filled it with kitchen conversion measurements, like
1 cup = xxtbsp=xxtsp==xxmls. all the way down to 1/8 cup
my business name is at the top, and phone number and website at the bottom.
i have had one just like it for years on my fridge, so im hoping others will keep this one visable too.

Mine is similar to tonedna ... a professional photo of one of my cakes is the background with all info overlayed on top of it.

Biz name and tag line
My name
phone/website/email
address

On the back is a list of things we do ... wedding cakes, catering, chocolate fountains, cookies, corporate events .... and a map on how to find us.

The overall card is pink ... stands out amongst all the black-n-white cards a bride collects at a bridal show (although tonedna's card would give me a run for my money on THAT one!) icon_lol.gif

I use a icture of a cake, biz name, my name,. and website. No phone#, no address. Until they visit the website, I don't even want them to call.

Mine are pretty simple/generic - photo of a cake, business name, business motto, my name, email, phone and web site. Oh,a nd it's pink.

My sister just made some (she and her husband have an equipment rental company) and since their customer base is English and Spanish-speaking people one side has their logo w/the list of products in English and the other side is the same except with the products listed in Spanish. Oh, and it's orange - for the same reason indydebi said - it's stands out more.

I use the title "Sugarpaste Specialist" on my card, it cracks me up how important it sounds, when all it really means is that I prefer to work with fondant. LOL! icon_biggrin.gif

I have a photo of my beer cake on the front (along with name, phone number, website and email) and an explanation of it on the back.

This is my card. It attaches to the front of my brochure like this, so the card ends in white but on the brochure is bordered in pink. Very simple.

I had mine made from vistaprint.com. My hubby made my logo and we uploaded it and did the foil on the lettering on the front. on the front of the card i have my logo, name, number, website and a list of things i do cakes, desserts, cookies, cupcakes, etc. on the back i have in black and white a checklist for party things like cake food drinks invitation etc. hope this helps. i really like the idea of the sticky on the back to change it up. i think ill have to do that too. thanks for the idea.
