illustrator, e-mail, deviantart, tumblr --> all these, what's their point size? They seem to vanish in the brown, a little hard to read. If I remember correctly, anything below 6 pt (or was it 4?) won't be printed properly. But I like the overall look, what kind of paper do you intend to print it on? [link] <-- on something like this I think it would like even nicer, but yeah, my opinion.

Hello there! I read the title as business card, but are you using theses for conventions or for actual jobs application? (because your title sort of confuse me about that.)

They're mostly for conventions but I really want a more professional air about it so it doesn't limit it and also I like that kinda style/formality. Basically I wouldn't wanna put "anime artist" but it's not like I have to say it since the art speaks for itself. LOL So convention cards to give out my info!

Ooohhh alright! Thank you for clearing it up for me! It will be very useful for convention indeed. People will catch on your drawing on the card pretty fast too, quite fitting for a convention! I'm glad it is the case, because otherwise I would have to warn you about iui;;; that on the professional/job seeking, this wouldn't be accepted. At all. So I'm glad it is not the case. (and please trust me on this one, I'm studying in graphic design and studied a lot about professional cards and such. It's very fun, but very hard to do!)

I would also recommend that you change the color for "e-mail, deviantart, tumblr" to a brighter one, because when you are going to print it, it will be difficult to read. I know it look nice on the screen, but printer love to destroy all the nice colors you select QAQg I would suggest you take the yellow tint you got for the square, that would offer a great contraste. Otherwise, the contrast won't be shown enough when printed.

Also don't forget to make print test at the printer place you will go to order them, to approve it before making 1000 copies! (or so I read in one of your comment?) If you see the color arent coming out great, it will have costed a lot... And be careful with the lineless edge :) But i don't know if you know that so I'll stop here haha

If you ever get questions about making professional cards, I will be very happy to help you!

Wow, thank you very much! This is actually quite constructive. Yeah, no worries if I was going to give them out for actual job seeking I really would rather have a more professional air with a suitable illustration. But for convention information I felt more than satisfied with this *v*b

Thank you for your advice! I'm very happy to hear your feedback to think about and to even use this as a reference. You're incredibly polite and constructive and I wish more people were like you. (: Thanks again and I'll definitely look back on this comment more than once to review it. <33

OR YOU COULD ASK ME TO MAKE THEM-hit--hit- Honestly, making business card was one of the project I liked the most in my class (that and web design oh god yes so fun) gdslj thank you! I didn't wanted to come as offensive, I know people can be quite grumpy about none-positive remarks.

But eeehh if you want more advices i'll give you quick tricks to avoid the mistakes I did (and learned with the blood of my wallet -sob-) First, be ready to print more than once. Never has my cards worked on the first time. I said to do print test at the place you will print them because inks/colors will change depending of the printer and even depending of the day (refill ink and such) you don't want mismatched colors on your pile of cards. It will look weird. (because the colors will be differents even if you have the exact same colors on your files. Printers are jerks.)

Printing compagnies will probably offer you some prices on it. Especially if its over 1000, they are going to use a machine. I suggest you ask them to cut them themselves, unless you are very perfectionnist. Then you can do it yourself with an x-acto and a cutting surface and a rule. (good luck) Also don't forget to put guiding line. You will love them when it is gotten to the cutting phase. Printing recto verso won't fit perfectly. No matter how good the printer is, there will be a slight distance between both images on the paper. The trick is to extend the background color of one side, and cut on the side that doesn't have an extended background. Then it will look great without a white line ruining your card. (in your case I would suggest extending the brown background where you got your infos (email, da,tumblr) and keep the actual size on the side of the drawing (and use that side to mark your guideline for cutting)

Mmmm for the typo you can usually go between 10pts and 12pts easily for the text. Don't worry, it is quite readable. It always look smaller on screen. Make test with your printer if you doubt (because typography can change size from one to another.)

I would suggest you make the distance between your info/yellow block and the edge a bit bigger so you can pally any distance the printer will do with the recto-verso! (but not too much, just a slight bit, maybe 95% or 90% smaller.)

I'll be glad to help if you got other questions! :)
