Here's my attempt at a single sided business card. If anyone could write some text for it by the end of the day that would be great. Click image, select "more" at the top, then click download image. Please save as a png file. Thanks

Oh, its perfect!!!!!!!!! Fantastic, much better than what i attempted. 1000 thanks!
Just got home from work. I think it's $15 for 500 cards at Staples. PM me your address and i'll mail you 200 or so. I'll run em off tommorow morning.

I had an 1st gen Insight visitor in the parking lot today. 3 weeks ownership so far. Cards will be so much better than my scribbles on the back of envelopes.

Can someone with a smartphone scan the QR code and verify that it goes to the homepage?

I don't have a cellphone (yes, some people don't, i know!). I'd feel pretty stupid if i printed 500 cards without double checking first.

I have the cards right now, they look great. Though the text, including in the logo could be bigger. I can see how an older person might have trouble reading it. Thanks again!

No problem - I thought about the font/size and thought it might be tough. I'm not a designer.

Coming back to this thread since I still like the idea of it.

However, when it comes to the cards I'd say something like "Hypermiling = Safely achieving higher MPG than the EPA figures."

Tips:

1: Learn.
2: Maintain the vehicle.
3: Fill-up all the way (But no "topping off") and track miles-per-gallon.

It's three, but it makes more of a change to work on the bottom line than the top. Without learning, What is there? Without maintaining the vehicle, What is there? Without tracking fuel economy, What is there?
