Mine is my favorite photo of Lake McDonald at Glacier National Park (US). I have the contact information on the back. I even have an 18" wide vinyl version attached to the back of the trailer.

Beautiful photo Jon. I'd love to see a larger version of it.

Very cool card, Donna D. And Ian G and Jon, too. More of us eggies will have to get them.

Eric, you had the greatest photo on the Escape calendar. Mirror image of a mountain on the side of the Escape.

Great idea for a card Donna.

Looks good Donna. Nice use of the parking lot foreground as text background.

I think the term for these non-business cards would be "visiting cards".

I completely agree with leaving most personal information off of the card. I have even had business cards (actually for business) with no street or mailing address: aside from the issue of keeping up with moves, if someone legitimately needs that they can ask for it by e-mail, just as Donna intends for recipients to use a PM through this forum.

I got mine from mini-moo - they're half-size.
I have parts of a few watercolors of mine on one side and my contact info on the other side.

Interesting point about how much info to provide - I don't give my address, but do list my phone number. I might drop that for the next set of cards.

And I'll probably swap out the paintings for new ones and add a trailer picture or two.

I find that I hand out a fair number of cards - either camping or while sketching on location.

Great topic Donna!

Yo Anne, we have to SWAP cards at a gathering! I collect biz cards from trailer folks like some people collect baseball cards. And, I'd love to have one with one of your paintings on it!

Nice paintings, Anne.

I used to have some business cards that listed my occupation as 'bicycle tourist' and my title as 'chief retirement officer'. They listed my address, phone, email and had a pointer to my journal on My rationale was that all the information was available on the white pages. And taped or attached the cards to anything I might lose while touring -- my cell phone, glasses case, iPad, etc. but now I need to get some more cards made. I like the idea of a photo on the cards
