New members?

I've been thinking that I'd make myself something like this for SportsmobileForum. We use these for SoCal Broncos to get people to sign up (and go on our trips), when we see a Bronco wherever we might be. We have a business card template and we each print them out to hand out or place on windshields.

Good idea? Happened to see another SMB today at lunch, and it made me think of this again.

Good idea Herb. I know of four other SMBs in town and and least five others in the state, but I have only talked to one of those on online. I know blogging isn't for everybody, but I think most folks do not even know of the SMB forum or the yahoo SMB owners' group.

Here's the card I made for my old club in Indiana. I like the "HEY NICE BRONCO" card too.

OK, finally got off my butt and made up some cards. Here's what a page of them look like, designed to be printed out on laserjet business cards (Avery 8371 template). There's no way to attach a file, so PM me if you want the file e-mailed to you. It's very basic, but then again I have no artistic skills.

Cool biz card! Thanks herb. Something like this will work for me.

I am still surprised on the numbers of SMBs I see up here in the frozen North (a dozen or more), but I only know two other SMB local owners personally, or on line.

Here I output another one with some different fonts a little more like the Bronco card. You should be able to print the PDF on paper or the Adobe template. Good work Herb!

Glad to see someone has some creative flair, I like what you did. I was originally just going to copy and size the Sportsmobile Forum header from the top of the webpage, but I figured the snow-capped letters would only work for so long on the cards. I really like the font you used. The SoCalBroncos font is based on the chrome "Bronco" script that is on the driver's and passenger's side front fenders of the early Broncos.

One of these days I'll have to pry the secret of posting a file into a message out of you.
