new postcard for the business

Hi, to all my friends out in the blogosphere.

I'm running out of postcards, and thought I'd make up a new design.
Please, I'd love your feedback on this. Here's the old card:


















and the new look:


















I'll bleed the sides, like the original. What do you think? Do I need to give more info on the card? Have multiple images, or is that too busy? Need to make up my mind soon, and I'd love YOUR opinion. Thanks, {:-Deb

I like the new look! The necklace and writing on the black background is fabulous!

Really like the new one. If I may offer a couple layout suggestions?

Bring your name down towards the center a bit more and make it 1-2 points bigger. This means sliding down the text under it and making it a touch smaller. Then with the etsy url in the lower left make it a touch smaller and move it to the right a bit and center it between the bottom edge and the bottom of the necklace.

I like it :) Not too busy and I love how you put a haiku in the picture :)

I like the second one better. Gives more information about each piece. I'm partial to blue, too. :)

I think the new one looks great! I got a smiley giggle when I saw that your first card has the necklace I showed on my treasury blog :)

I think there is enough info...unless you use the phone lots for the biz - it's not really necessary...etsy gives them everything they need, including contact

And Heather, really appreciate the suggestions.

I love the necklace in your old postcard. The new design with the turquoise against the dark background looks great.

unique - let me play with that one - thanks for commenting.

The new one is really nice! I like the type in turquoise- I think white would be too stark. And I definitely think you have enough info on there..less is better with things like this I think:)

The new card is very professional looking and the colors of the necklace against the background are great! I like the suggestions from above.

The new look postcard looks great! Good idea you stuck with one colour theme...that always makes an impression. Also, the choice of necklace is stunning!

I like the new postcard. I love your slideshow, what is the music? It is very calm and soothing.

Look good. I think I'd have the website address stand out a little more. If you change your name to white, I would change the website address to white as well. You want them to immediately know how to contact you.

I'm bringing the files to the printer tomorrow. Waterrose - I'm increasing my web address and keeping all the font turquoise, so it's readable against the light-colored stones. Thanks everyone! you're the best!
