While the back may include books, author visit information, or whatever they may specialize in. I have left mine blank so far, which give people a space to write reminders, or tips, or something I might have said to them.

  1. Like you Tracy, I too have my photo on my business card. The idea came to me when, after a conference, I couldn’t place all the people’s cards I had collected with their faces. It’s very helpful, especially when you want to touch base at a later date. It makes remembering who you talked to much easier. Without stepping on your toes, I do have a little suggestion. You are a smart, beautiful woman Tracey! Don’t be shy. Please, please look up and into the camera at your adoring public when you reorder the next batch of cards. All the best to you…and continued success with all your endeavors.
