If this is ok with you mark(boxerforums), I was just wondering if it would be ok to make up a BF business card to help promote the site to more boxer owners...I've run into quite a few other boxer owners at the beach and the dog park that I let know about BF, and usually the web address gets written on a piece of paper and forgotten, or no one has a pen to wite it down....I think it would be great to hand them a cool looking card....we could make some sort of design competition for the card and vote on one winner that way the card would be the same everywhere and we could e-mail it to members who want it and make the file printable for a desktop printer and do it yourself paper.

That sounds like a great idea! I love it!

I've seen several boxers and their people in my neighborhood lately. What a great way to spread the word.

You know I was thinking the same thing and had been toying with how best to do it..Graphics is not my strong suit and was going to go with something pretty generic actually, but yea, people tend to hold on to business cards better than pieces of paper...I like it :)

does anyone know what the name of the BF font is? or have it that they can e-mail....I think we should use that font for the logo to keep it the same as the site.

You could receive them for a week or so, then pick your favorite 5 or 10 and open it up for voting.

I'll post png images without backgrounds so you guys can use them for creating your own designs.

I'll also post a psd if anyone has Photoshop and the font file.

A few questions:

1. What size and bleed should there be? We have a standard 85x55mm with 3mm bleed in the UK.
2. Should it be full colour both sides or just colour one side and B&W on the reverse?
3. What information is required on the cards i.e. name, number, web address etc etc.
4. Do you happen to have the logo as a vector eps file?
