Business card design
Hello,

Im trying to make a business card for mine and my mothers reptile breeding hobby. I want your opinion on the design and any suggestions of what you would do differently if anything.

most places will have a standard business cards are around 3.5 x 2, & I checked with your template, checks out.

I would center your title so it doesn't get cut off or bleed. The tiny space(margins) around your card should be 1-2 milometers bigger, this is your bleed area.

For the bottom text, io would make the line spacing a bit smaller

Thank you all for you input I have gone through and made the adjustments to the bearded dragons. As for the text and the margins I would like to ask a few questions how do you adjust the margins after they are set? Is there a way to set a custom spacing fir the text. I had to search online for quite sometime to find this one and I only hit enter once so I didn't put the spacing there

RE: Business card design
I have one more question. If I start the image out as a file like 1600 x 800 and then scale it down will the image have a higher quality on the final printed image as to where I have started these images out as 400 x 200
