    Default Photo on your business card...?

    Had coffee with one of three realtors I would have coffee with. He remarked that I do not have my picture on my card. He said many of his clients mention that the card with the pic may get...the pick..

    My cards do not have my ruddy face glaring back...does yours...?

    I am going to need another gazillion cards made and may have to set up a photo shoot if I choose to model....

    Do you or don't you have a really old pic of yourself on your card....

    Stephen, I have my photo on my business card. I like cards with photos kinda helps me put the face with the name. Funny how some photos are 30 year old prom pictures, mine is recent.
    Just noticed my avatar is about 6 yrs old.

    I don't have a photo on my card, but it's a pretty good likeness, nonetheless...

    Like Ray, I do not have my photo on my card but it is on my website. My smiling face is the first thing folks see for better or for worse! I do get several comments from clients that it is nice to see a picture of who you are talking and dealing with. I do need to change my photo, I have dropped some of my baby fat from the one I have up on my site.

    It's an interesting question. All of us already being pretty may not be enough. I'm wondering, if some objective opinion of one's "look" from a marketing perspective would be worth while. I mean Mr. Rodgers could hold a Black Belt, but I doubt he would go very far as an action movie star.

    Yup that should work real well!

    Remember if you not good looking like me, its wise not to put your photo on your biz card or website!

    My first cards, the beta's, they had my pic...I had more Mike Holmes comments, that they never got a second run. So, I grew out my flat top I've had for over 25 years, added a full goatee..I don't think I'm gonna get calls to model anytime soon....I'm having enough trouble with this career, never mind one that forces you to starve...

    Well I am going to start thinking about how the pic should be set up:...in the attic,up on a roof, under a deck...beside my truck and logo or just like the realtors do, head shot, except not smiling...think ill stand beside the truck....thankfully my Canon has a delete button...

    I will post the winning mug shot...

    When realtors stop using their high school yearbook pictures on their biz cards it might be worth considering.

    No photo. Where people seem to be more impressed is when I give them a laminated card like your driver's license.

    One of my grandfathers, who had a sense of humor, had a card with his name on the bottom. In the center it read "I'm a bit of a liar myself but go ahead with your story." I expect it worked well for him.

    My cards are extra heavy, high gloss, rounded corners and in full color front and back. My photo is on the back side along with additional info about me. I order cards once a year and always update my photo. I noticed my receding hairline so my photo shows me with a cap now.

    I've had photo on card for years. Nothing special. One my daughter took and had me laughing. I use solid plastic cards that seem to me more impressive to people for some reason. I tell them that they don't melt in my pocket.

    The above statements are expressed solely as my opinion and in all probability will conflict with someone else's.

    I've had my picture on my card for years. Full color simple picture of me in front of a brick wall. Taken by my daughter.

    Love having my pic on my card, people have a tendency to not ask questions and just let me go about my work
