I put images from the client's session on the back of the card, and give them 50 with their order.

Hello Karen,

I Like your card.
Only in your internet address i dont like the black in www and com.

Than when I look at your webpage and see the pictures i feel the card design is to classic.
I think a little more modern design will match more with your work.
When I look at this part of your page Karen Skelly Photography here i get de feeling de card en webpage match.

I hoop this wil help you a little.

Best regards
Marc

Your website's bodycopy is too small for convenient reading. And cannot be enlarged because it is Flash. The "diapositive" (white on black) layout further complicates legibility.
And I agree with Marc that your website's style doesn't jive with your business card's.

I agree with the website/card not matching. I'm trying to design the card and then I plan on making changes on the website, but I need to be sure of the design first. So, do you like the card design style or the website style?

Les: You have alot of business cards - I'm having enough trouble trying to design one.
Fritz: I've thought about giving cards to the brides. Right now I give them a 2x3 book with 20 of their images and my website showing.

Thanks, Karen

I like the cards better than the site, personally. I give the cards to my Seniors, brides (starting in April, obviously) get an iPad.

TBH: neither. Imo the card is too old-fashioned, and the website too illegible.
